The Wild Ones

The world’s a more exciting place on two wheels, and Arizona Bike Week intends to keep that ideal alive. Cyclefest kicks off 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 28, with a 230-mile benefit ride though scenic Northern Arizona. The day wraps with a tribute to local motorcycle legend Buddy Stubbs, followed by Quiet Riot in concert.

The ensuing four days feature insane stunt riders, a beauty pageant, hundreds of vendors, bike showcases, more rides, live music -- including R.E.O. Speedwagon, Tesla and others -- auctions, industry tributes, bike games, the annual Hogs for Heroes run, and a helluva lot more. Sons of Anarchy stars Ryan Hurst, who you might recognize as Opie, and Winter Ave Zolie, who plays Lyla, will drop by as the festivities wrap on Sunday, April 1.
