This is a “big deal” for Cookeville: the town is hosting of the first “Southern Backroads H.O.G. Rally,” on July 11–15, 2017. This is not the typical state-wide Harley Owners Group Rally, as this event will be expecting some 8,000 to 10,000 bikes to descend upon the Cookeville area! Events include guided and self-guided ride/touring options, street parties, riding competitions with law enforcement riders, stunt shows, vendors, food and nightly live music. Plans include a limitless menu of experiences and entertainment, including an AMA Pro Hill Climb.
Cookeville is surrounded by world-class riding opportunities in every direction. Because Cookeville served as host to three state-level rallies in the past five years, “The town has an experienced local committee combined with a community that truly welcomes motorcycle riders,” according to Todd Robinson, H.O.G. Regional Manager.
In addition, the State of Tennessee, through the Department of Tourist Development, is devoting considerable resources to support the rally. Be sure to mark your calendar with this “must do” event, taking place in Cookeville, Tennessee.
