Getting some good photos now. Links to browse and submit are in the header.
Taken yesterday afternoon.
Just click the links in the menu above to view/attach your 2013 pics. Just started this today, so there are no pics yet. Once you submit, they should be on the site within a few hours.
I don’t think they actually did it last year, but they have taken it out of the temporary traffic order for this year. They left a note saying the police have the option to close it if conditions warrant, but they seem confident those days are over. The new little roundabout at the junction of Route 3 and 11b is completed, so that should help things flow.
First signs are already popping up and some vendor tents are already being laid out. The typical buzz is starting in the media and the accuweather.com monthly forecast shows the opening weekend to be 70 degrees and cloudy. That’s right… they’re really trying to forecast for that far out. I’ll remain skeptical.
2011 Laconia Bike Week Pics now posted over on the other Weirs Beach site. Sorry about the lack of updates this year!
Scenes from today down at Weirs Beach courtesy of Weirs Beach Online. Nice to have great weather for a change– it really brought out the crowds!
Having a hard time finding a place to stay? Yeah, I figured. Now through late April is the best time to secure a room, and since there aren’t many hotel rooms left in the Weirs area anymore due to condo conversions, finding vacancy for the dates you want can take quite a bit of effort.
This time of year, a lot of places are closed any might not even be answering the phones on a consistent basis, so using the internet is the best way. Don’t throw in the towel. First go through my page of bike week lodging which will link you to the google information page for various properties, where you’ll get direct links to hotel websites and property reviews.
Also handy to know is that the Laconia chamber of commerce keeps a listing of places that currently have openings for bike week. Not all members participate, and the information is usually a few days old, but it’s a good start. Click here to access the latest information.
