Sunday, October 9 at the Suffolk Executive Airport
in Conjunction with Suffolk Peanut Fest
The Suffolk Swamp Roar Motorcycle Rally will make its 15th annual 80-mile lap around the perimeter of the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge on Sunday, October 9.
If past rides are any indicator, Suffolk Tourism expects several hundred motorcycle enthusiasts to join the celebration.
Held in conjunction with the Suffolk Peanut Fest at the Suffolk Executive Airport, staging of bikes begins at 9:00 a.m. with send-off at 10:30 a.m. Registration is $20 per participant and includes the official ride T-shirt and V.I.P. Reception following the ride. Pre-registration is encouraged but on-site registrants are gladly accepted. Additional shirts, lapel pins and Swamp Roar merchandise will be available for purchase during the V.I.P. Reception. Since its beginning, the Swamp Roar Motorcycle Rally has increased awareness of the Great Dismal’s fragile eco-system and helped to fund nature-based tourism and interpretative programs such as the award-winning Great Dismal Swamp Birding Festival.
The 15th Annual Suffolk Swamp Roar Motorcycle Rally is produced by the Suffolk Division of Tourism with support from Suffolk Festivals and the Suffolk Chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association.
