One of the first big pieces I did for The Sun News, maybe 14 or 15 years ago, about what we then called Bike Month – May included the massive Harley Week and the Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest – involved trying to document the growth of Bikefest in particular. The Harley event is decades older than Bikefest, which began in 1980 inside the four-block Atlantic Beach as what some described as a fish fry and was sponsored by a local black motorcycle enthusiasts club.
