Bike Fest Expected To Bring In Millions

CORPUS CHRISTI -- Thousands of motorcyclists are expected to turn out for the first-ever Roar by the Shore Bike Fest here in the Coastal Bend this weekend.

The annual bike rally, which was previously held in South Padre Island, is expected to attract between 16- and 20,000 bikers and generate at least $5 million in revenue during what is typically a sluggish season for tourism.

"We're hoping that it's real successful so they'll bring it back next year and continue to put into the Corpus Christi economy in a real slow time of year," said Harley-Davidson enthusiast Dennis Burk.

Ocean Drive and Shoreline Boulevard will be closed Saturday to accommodate the thousands of motorcyclists who will make their way downtown, ending at the American Bank Center.

Those who are interested, but have yet to register can do so Saturday morning at the American Bank Center. For more information, visit ccbikefest.com.
