The 20th Anniversary Leesburg Bikefest takes place Friday, April 22, to Sunday, April 24. It is estimated that quarter million motorcyclists will be participating in the annual event.

The Florida Department of Transportation encourages motorists traveling on I-75, 1-4 and Florida’s Turnpike to use the 511 Traveler Information System before they head out, to avoid traffic congestion and arrive safely.

The 511 system provides real-time traffic information on all of Florida’s interstates, toll roads and other major metropolitan roadways.

LEESBURG — If you’re anywhere near Leesburg today (Thursday) … scratch that, if you’re anywhere near Lake County today, you’ll notice a decidedly different kind of traffic and people on local roads. More than 100,000 bikers are descending on the area this week for Bikefest — arguably the county’s largest (and undoubtedly its loudest) event of the year.

But Bikefest isn’t just for bikers. Over the years, it has become as much a music festival and shopping mall as it is a biker gathering. In other words, you don’t have to be into leather chaps, bandanas, tattoos and bristly facial hair to get a kick out of Bikefest.

And because we’re helpful types at the Daily Commercial, we took this opportunity to offer you this guide to Bikefest. Read more
