Avon hosting motorcycle enthusiasts

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – Beginning Saturday, over 400 motorcycle enthusiasts will arrive at the Christie Lodge in Avon to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Motorcycle Sport Touring Association.

The week-long event will include motorcycle technical seminars, specialty vendors and, most importantly, lots of riding and scenery on the spectacular Colorado Rocky Mountain roads.

“As a group, we have been coming to this area for many years and the Christie Lodge has been the perfect place for a rally like ours,” said Association President Michael Snyder. “The hospitality of the local residents is especially appreciated and was a major factor in our decision to return for the fifth time.”

Valley residents should expect to see an influx of motorcycles on the roads during this time and are encouraged to be aware of their presence on the roadways. The Christie Lodge has hosted the group’s national rally in 1992, 1995, 2000, and 2006.
