  • Americade


    Americade is a week-long motorcycle rally that is held during the first full week of June. The headquarters and location of many rally activities are in Lake George village, New York. The event is open to all motorcyclists and brand and type of motorcycles, and in the late 1990s attracted around 50,000 people annually, which grew to over 60,000 by 2007. Americade is billed by its organizer as the "World's Largest Motorcycle Touring Rally", and is distinguished from events such as Daytona Bike Week by its emphasis on motorcycle touring and by its organization and peacefulness. Attendees participate in demo rides from all of the major manufacturers, boat cruises, motorcycle judging, and group rides called "MiniTours" to various destinations in New York and Vermont. Americade also offers a large motorcycle trade show, TourExpo, located in two locations in Lake George: Million Dollar Beach and The Forum.

    Gloria Struck was one of the early members of the Motor Maids women's motorcycle club, which she joined in 1946, at age 21. She is both a Sturgis Hall of Fame and Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee. Struck was born in a room behind her parents' Clifton, New Jersey motorcycle shop in 1925. She has ridden motorcycles since age 16, and has engaged in several long-distance motorcycling journeys through all 48 of the contiguous U.S. states. Her first solo motorcycle tour, in Canada in 1950, was the subject of a feature story in a 1952 issue of Harley-Davidson Enthusiast. She has frequently ridden to distant rallies for Motor Maids and the national Sturgis Motorcycle Rally into her late 80s, for which she spurns trailering. She estimates a lifetime riding on eleven Harley-Davidsons and three Indian Motorcycles she has owned, and went on motorcycle tours in Europe starting in her 70s. For her 90th birthday in 2015, she rode over from New Jersey to a Motor Maids rally in New Brunswick and back. Struck was named to the Sturgis Hall of Fame in 2011, and to the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2016.
