Bikers anticipate big rally this spring

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – After years of low turnout, bikers and biker businesses believe the 75th Spring Bike Rally could be the big turnaround they've been waiting for.

"People are saying ‘Hey, who's coming to town?' and making sure the dates are out there," said McTailor's owner Ray Heverling. "I think it's going to be even bigger this year."

Heverling makes custom biker clothing and patches for the rally, and he says business has increased slowly but surely since the 2008 rally, but he says buzz for this year's rally has begun early.

In Murrells Inlet SBB, general manager Bill Barber has been busy making improvements to the biker bar, adding a bridge connecting two of the bars on the property and getting things ready for the rally.

"I can't sleep at night thinking about all the stuff we've got to do," Barber said.

SBB has also teamed up with groups like the Veterans Benefit Foundation to raise money for wounded veterans during this year's rally.
