Bikers bring a boost to NH economy

Posted: Updated:
LEBANON, N.H. -

The 90th annual Motorcycle Week in Laconia is rolling forward, as bikes continue to flock to New Hampshire Lake's Region.

The annual motorcycle rally pumps thousands of dollars into the New Hampshire economy every year.

We caught up with one group from Glens Falls, N.Y., that stopped in West Lebanon Wednesday to fuel up and buy snacks. The eight-day event also results in significant charitable giving as well.

"It goes to different things. They have raffles for the food pantry. They have raffles for the Lions Clubs and different things. So we try to help them out," said Sean MacDonald of Glens Falls. "Once you have been to one bike rally you have pretty much been to them all. The only thing that changes are the sites and the people. I just look at it like vacation."

The bike rally continues through Sunday. Law enforcement officials are reminding motorists to be careful of the extra traffic on the roads, especially the motorcycles.
