This year's Best Beer Gut Competition is dedicated to last year's winner, Bobby Little. Bobby passed away of an apparent stroke while riding his motorcycle last June. We were fortunate to meet Bobby and while the Bike Fest organizers only knew him for a day we could tell he was full of energy and loved life.

Bobby Little

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 2015 we're celebrating our 7th anniversary. The Blue Ridge Bike Fest has taken place at the Berglund Center in Roanoke, VA since its inception.

Helmet & Jacket Check

Iron horse Ministries will once again be providing a helmet and jacket check for bikers. Their trailer will be located in the Waste Management Biker Only Parking area of the show. Thanks to Pro-Line Trailers for the use of a trailer for the helmet and jacket check.
