PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to recognize the start of Americade, an AMA National Convention, which will run June 7-11 in Lake George, N.Y. Attracting motorcyclists on all types of bikes, especially tourers, sport-tourers and cruisers, Americade offers some of the best riding in the country in addition to a full slate of events and entertainment.

"Americade is a gathering of true motorcycle enthusiasts, fun-loving folks who simply enjoy having a great time on two wheels," said AMA Vice President of Membership and Marketing Dan Stedman. "The AMA is looking forward to being on location, supporting our members, signing up new members and enjoying ourselves at one of the premier events on the riding calendar every year."

As part of its participation in Americade, the AMA is sponsoring the VT High Gaps Mini-Tour, Americade's most popular tour. The AMA will provide prizes all four days of the ride, including aGoPro Hero HD camera, a Dispatch 1 Motorcycle Power Distribution System, XENA motorcycle locks, and DVD copies of the films Hard Miles 1 and 2, which tell the stories of the 2007 and 2009 Iron Butt Rallies.

In addition, the AMA will organize the AMA Women's Brunch & Scenic Ride at the Roaring Brook Ranch, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., on Friday, June 10. Also on Friday, at 1 p.m. in the Ft. William Henry Resort Conference Center, AMA Riding Manager Dave Hembroff will offer a seminar on Powering Up Your Touring. AMA prizes also will be awarded at the Friday night Great Adventure ceremony for the Americade Poker Run.

In addition to all the great two-wheel camaraderie of Americade, the event features guided tours in the Adirondack Park and Green Mountains of Vermont, two motorcycle trade shows with nearly 250 vendors, demo rides, bike shows, barbecues, parades, music and comedy shows, boat cruises onLake George, museum tours, displays from nearly all the major motorcycle manufacturers, and more.

"The list of cool stuff to do at Americade is seemingly endless," Stedman said. "Certainly, it's more than any one attendee can possible jam into five days. I guess it's a good thing there's always next year!"
