The 2019 Myrtle Beach Bike Week Fall Rally is set for Sept. 30 through Oct. 6, with another fun-filled week on the horizon. Unlike its larger and hotter sister event in the spring, the autumn version offers perfect riding conditions.
For thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts, there’s no better way to see Myrtle Beach than on two wheels. And for the bikers who have riding the Carolina coastline year after year, there’s no better time to experience it than the fall.
Milder temperatures, lighter traffic and a walk on the not-so wild side await those who hit the open road to Myrtle Beach for the Fall Bike Rally. But expect the same good times, camaraderie and fun atmosphere as the Spring Bike Rally.
Regardless of the season, Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort is the best place to park your bike and rest your head. With 24-hour security, clean and comfortable accommodations and excellent amenities, Compass Cove is a favorite for bikers.
Close and convenient to all the Fall Bike Rally festivities, Compass Cove makes it easy to go from relaxing by the beach to riding in the center of all the action. Here are a few of the hot spots to check out during the Fall Bike Rally:
Biker boots are welcome at Barefoot Landing, which rolls out the red carpet for Fall Bike Rally-goers on Oct. 2-6. A large parking area plays host to bike shows and vendor tents each day with special events to be announced. Barefoot Landing is also a great place for dining, shopping and nightlife, including the Alabama Theatre and House of Blues for live music and dancing. For more info, visit www.bflanding.com.
Hurricane Alley Rally
The headquarters for the 2019 Fall Bike Rally is located only a couple of miles south of Compass Cove at Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson. The dealership hosts a wide range of events throughout the week, including bike shows, vendors, poker runs, food and live music.

The South Strand is buzzing with bikers during the fall, and the main drag through the fishing village of Murrells Inlet is the hive of activity. Featuring a long row of biker bars, Murrells Inlet takes the party to the great outdoors as the parties spill into the parking lots. Popular stops include The Beaver Bar, SBB (Suck, Bang Blow) and Whisky Fish. The Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, a waterfront boardwalk connecting seafood restaurants and bars.
There are lots of poker runs organized by various businesses, but many bikers use the Fall Bike Rally to ride scenic stretches of open highway on their own. Impromptu packs often form on Highway 22 West (to Conway and Aynor), Highway 31 South (to Socastee and Murrells Inlet), and Highway 31 North (to North Myrtle Beach and Little River), or explore the back roads that run through the coastal woodlands and wetlands (International Drive and Highway 90).
The Breakers Resort is the best place to set-up base camp for your next fall bike rally.
