Apple’s East Coast Motorcycle Rally is held each August in Little Orleans MD complete with beer, beads, and boobs on a secluded piece of private land making this rally about as old skool as it gets. Throw in bands that have performed there like Molly Hatchet and Marshall Tucker, or the Outlaws who will headline the 2014 rally, and then add a rodeo that includes a motorcycle demolition derby and you’ve got a pretty damn good time going on for yourself and everyone around you!
Then there’s the gate. Take the time to roll out the gate and check out some of the great northwestern MD and southern PA roads. You will surely enjoy it. On the way back in you can stop at one of a few places like the Aztec Oasis or the Belle Grove Grocery store set up with live music and vendors. Make sure you stop at Bill’s Place, a popular rally local bar about a half mile outside the gate. Also outside the gate, the local fire department puts out a great breakfast for short money at the Little Orleans Campground right next to the Apple rally grounds.
If you’ve never been you should check out the East Coast Motorcycle Rally. Very much like the Harley Rendezvous Classic in NY with its party atmosphere, you won’t be disappointed. The grounds are rolling and wooded lending itself to some isolation but dont plan on too much sleep. You can have open fires at your campsite too. Oh yeah. Make sure you plan on taking Monday off from work! You may need it!
