The college basketball heroics of the NCAA Final Four won't be the only action in metro Phoenix this weekend. Over at WestWorld of Scottsdale, an estimated 70,000-plus motorheads will gather for Arizona Bike Week, the largest motorcycle rally in the Southwest.

The five-day event runs from Wednesday to Sunday, April 3 to 7, and will celebrate motorcycles and biker culture with a vendor village, group rides, attractions, stunt shows and other activities.

One of the biggest draws of Arizona Bike Week will be its nightly concert series in the RockYard featuring performances by nationally known touring artists. This year's headliners include rapper Yelawolf, country rock singer-songwriter Brantley Gilbert, nu-metal icons Godsmack and rock 'n' roll legend George Thorogood.
