New Hampshire Bike Week postponed

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) The event known as Bike Week, which draws thousands of motorcycle riders to New Hampshire each June, has been postponed because of the coronavirus.

The Laconia City Council voted Monday to move the event to Aug. 22-30. It had been scheduled for June 13-21.

WMUR-TV reports Charlie St. Clair, executive director of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, said if the COVID-19 situation doesn’t improve by the beginning of August, the organization will have to reassess when to hold the rally.

Also, Star Island, which hosts family camps and programs at the Isles of Shoals, will not open this year because of coronavirus safety concerns.
