The Blue Ridge Bike Fest was first thought of in 2008 and planning began then for the first annual event in April of 2009. More than 8,000 bikers from all over the state of Virginia and regionally from West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky came for that event and it's been growing ever since. In 2014 we're celebrating our 6th anniversary. The Blue Ridge Bike Fest has taken place at the Roanoke Civic Center in Roanoke, VA since its inception.
