Many of us know the feeling of closing the riding season and parking your motorcycle in a garage for winter. The summer was warm and offered you many days of great riding. And you enjoyed every bit of it. Now the snow is on the ground and the only thing you look forward to is getting to ride again.
With over 150 locations in the US and many more internationally, EagleRider offers great options for riding all year long, even in fall and winter. Pack light, fly in, and ride as long as you wish, from weekend trips to longer cross-country rides. We picked 5 best ways you can do in the Sun Belt.
1. RENTAL LOCATIONS OPEN ALL YEAR
There is an endless list of weekend trips you can do in riding destinations that have warm weather all year long. All of our rentals include 24-hour rental period and you can book your trips online in a few minutes. Half-shell helmets are included with the rentals and we offer full-face helmets and jacket rentals, so you really don’t need to pack much riding gear unless you want to. Please take a look at the US states where we have locations open 365 days a year.

3. WINTER ESCORTED TOURS

Cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway and desert oasis towns near Death Valley. Get ready for the incredible scenery of jumbled rocks and twisted Joshua Trees that can only be seen in the Mojave Desert.
- Southwest Escorted Motorcycle Tour - 2 routes: LOS ANGELES TO LAS VEGAS and LAS VEGAS TO LOS ANGELES
- Gulf Coast Escorted Motorcycle Tour - 2 routes: NEW ORLEANS TO ORLANDO and ORLANDO TO NEW ORLEANS
- ARIZONA ESCORTED MOTORCYCLE TOUR
Our new series of winter escorted 5-day tours offers the convenience of a guide tour including support vehicle with carrying luggage and a spare motorcycle, all accommodation logistics arranged in advance, and a late model motorcycle of your choice.
What’s different about these tours, aside from the very affordable price starting at $900 per person, is the ability to ride each day either as a group or on your own. We currently offer five routes, all of which offer a bit of different scenery and activities for the evenings.
Keep riding all winter long by joining more that one of these tours that have departure dates from November until April. See all tours itineraries for winter riding on our GUIDED MOTORCYCLE TOURS PAGE.
4. RALLIES AND MOTORCYCLE EVENTS
Whether it will be your first time at a rally or you got every year, being around other people who enjoy the wind in the face and the freedom on two wheels as much as you do is an exhilarating feeling. Most rallies are a week long and sure, you can ride your own bike from home. But most of us don’t have 2-3 weeks of vacation time to spend on such trips. This is where rentals come in handy and offer a great solution to enjoy any rally in the USA.
Book your rentals in advance, fly in to the city of your choice, and your ride will be waiting for you with a full gas tank and a welcome note with your name on it. Here is a list of rallies and events that happen every year September through mid-April:
- BIKES, BLUES, BBQ, ARKANSAS
- LAS VEGAS BIKEFEST, NEVADA
- BIKETOBERFEST, FLORIDA
- LONE STAR RALLY, TEXAS
- DAYTONA BIKE WEEK, FLORIDA
- ARIZONA BIKE WEEK, ARIZONA
See the full list of events and dates for each rally this year on our MOTORCYCLE RALLIES AND EVENTS PAGE.
Each event page lists the nearest rental locations, but you can also choose to do longer trips and rent from another state and possibly even another coast. It’s common for our riders to rent for 2-3 weeks during Sturgis and other rallies and tour the country before and after the rally festivities are over.
No matter which of these riding options appeal to you most, one thing is certain - you can always find a perfectly maintained motorcycle that’s ready to hit the road on any day of the year. Keep the warm wind in your face and ride all year long with EagleRider.
