North Conway, NH -- The Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Mt Washington Valley HOG Chapter in conjunction with White Mountain Harley Davidson invites all motorcyclists to experience Rally In The Valley, five days of mountain motorcycle adventure in Mount Washington Valley, June 15-19, 2009.  Located in the heart of the White Mountains of New Hampshire and surrounded by roads meant for motorcycles, communities from Gorham and Jackson to Chocoura and Tamworth will offer bikers the ultimate rally experience complete with small town charm and biker-friendly hospitality. Motorcyclists looking for lakes, mountains, hills, curves, beautiful country roads, guided day trips, great food, live music, fantastic shopping, and so much more will find it all in Mt Washington Valley, along with a five-day  packed schedule of events, packages and brotherhood entirely geared toward motorcycle enthusiasts, and it's all just 50 miles from the site of "Laconia Motorcycle Week".

The five-day event will feature different guided or self-guided rides each day including a Ride to the Sky up the Mount Washington Auto Road, where the road is "owned" exclusively by motorcycles.  There will be fashion shows, concerts and live entertainment, beach parties, motorcycle shows and prizes along with plenty of opportunity for brotherhood amidst the scenic beauty of the 660,000 acre White Mountain National Forest and Mt Washington Valley.
