Sixth Annual Ocean City BikeFest Comes to Town

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- More than 100,000 people are expected to roll into Ocean City this weekend for the sixth annual OC BikeFest.

For many people like Steve Novak, BikeFest is a can't miss event.

"You can't beat it- it's like Christmas in Ocean City, yes," Novak said.

People from all over Delmarva hit the road and head into town.

"It's fantastic you can come out almost all four days with no problem and ride back home," said Shawn Mallack of Bowers Beach, Del.

And lots of visitors come from up and down the East Coast.

"It's just exciting to see how people can come together and have fun, that's what it's all about," said Holly Bickle of Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Jim Tauber of Willards said everyone is here to have fun but it's also a win-win for Ocean City during the so-called shoulder season.

"Spend lots of money, lots of money because they ain't afraid to spend their money because these motorcycles are $15,000 or more so they ain't cheap," Tauber said.

In addition to the bikes, festival go-ers say it's the camaraderie that brings them back each year.

"It's a big gathering of a load of bikes, it's a good time. I come here to see the events and come see Jackal, all the vendors," Novak said.

OC BikeFest runs through Sunday at the Ocean City Inlet.

    November 23, 2011 is a date that will forever follow Nils Mulford, and the rest of his family. On that day, he lost his daughter to a car accident in the Seaford area. He didn't know it then, but that tragedy would be a call to action, all in the name of preventing future heartbreak for other families. Just south of Seaford, where Ockels Road and Airport Road meet Route 13, sits a memorial for Alexis Brielle Mulford. When she was just 16-years old, she lost her life in a tragic car accident.More
