PICKERINGTON, OH – April 24, 2019 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Laughlin River Run, featuring a custom bike show, a poker run for charity, a concert, vendors and more, starts Wednesday, April 24, in Laughlin, Nev.

The event, held along the Colorado River near the junctions of Nevada, California and Arizona, is the second stop on the 2019 AMA National Gypsy Tour, a series of premier road-riding events that includes some of the country’s largest and best known motorcycle gatherings.

“The Laughlin River Run draws more than 70,000 motorcycle enthusiasts to town and has been a popular event for motorcyclists for more than 35 years,” said AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson. “Such tradition is part of what makes the AMA National Gypsy Tour special.

“These events allow riders of all makes and models to get together and enjoy friendship, food, entertainment, group or individual riding and quality vendors,” Wilson said. “AMA members can visit Booth 13 at the Colorado Belle Exhibitor Area Thursday through Saturday to show their AMA cards and get the official 2019 AMA Gypsy Tour pin.”

The AMA has been sanctioning Gypsy Tours since 1924. Originally overnight events with organized road rides and other activities of interest, motorcycle enthusiasts would converge on specific destinations. Gypsy Tours were staged in different parts of the country and typically occurred on the same weekend every year.
