About The 2010 Motorcycle Grand Tour of Virginia:
For a small registration fee, motorcycle enthusiasts receive a motorcycle passport, a ride brochure and a Grand Tour memento as they travel throughout Virginia. Riders will visit certain primary destinations to receive a designated passport stamp. Each stamp adds a specified number of points based on that destination's level of sponsorship and prizes donated. The number of points each rider collects throughout the duration of the tour will determine their eligibility for various prize drawings at the conclusion of the tour November 1, 2010.
This second annual event is a partnership between the Governor's Motorcycle Advisory Council, the Virginia Tourism Corporation, Virginia Motorcycle Dealers Association and the Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association in an effort to promote tourism, safety and awareness. A statewide promotion of Virginia's attractions, it features restaurants, motorcycle dealers and lodging facilities focused on the growing market of motorcycle riders. The grand tour provides tourism partners the opportunity to reach out to this emerging target market. The tour begins with an April 9-11 kick-off event held in conjunction with The Blue Ridge Bike Fest. http://www.vamotorcycletour.com
