Cotee River Bike Fest 2017…Loved It!

By Lulu

Cotee Bike Fest

This was my first time to experience Cotee River Bike Fest which has a rich history of entertaining bikers in their unique community park on the Cotee River in New Port Richey. Two stages provided nonstop music. The stage in Sims Park is the center for events, vendors, the bikini and bike contests. Another stage is off a side street with lots of unique restaurants and bars. We loved the Little Corona Cigar Bar and the owner is a Harley guy and fire chief! The two days of bike shows put on my Minh of Venom Cycles had lots of great rides to check out and the winners went home with beautiful trophies. Revolution Roller Derby girls were pushing hard as they twirled around the pavement. And if that wasn’t brutal enough they had ACW Wrestling too.

The bikini contest was the crowd favorite by the sheer number of phones and cameras pointed at the scantily clothed beauties. But MUSIC was constant and extremely good! Most were tribute bands including KISS. One of the area’s favorite, the Bearded Brothers rocked the park. And FireHouse rocked the park! This is a wonderful laid-back event. Each rally we attend has a uniqueness and this one reminded me of a rock fest from back in the 70s, blankets on the ground, shade covered seats, a lazy river running by and beautiful oak trees. The hardworking West Pasco Chamber of Commerce kept things organized and the park sparkling clean!

This is a community event and many of the vendors and supporters of this bike event were locals. A lot of work goes into pulling an event like this off and when the community and Chamber get behind a motorcycle event we as riders should support their efforts and ride in to partake in their party. A poker run was organized by the Gulf Coast Fire and Iron MC for the Children’s Burn Camp and they hit their highest number of riders ever…considering rain was projected that was awesome to hear.
