Check out these Canadian motorcycle rallies this summer

The Wharf Rat Rally attracts riders from all over North America.

Wharf Rat Rally

Southern Nova Scotia, Aug. 28-Sept. 1

One of two major general-interest rallies in Atlantic Canada (the other is Moncton’s Atlanticade, which runs in June), Wharf Rat is sort of a season-closer for many riders. It’s held in Digby, Nova Scotia, once labeled the “most romantic town in Canada.” Cynics might say that’s because there’s nothing else to do there, but at least during the Wharf Rat (August 28-September 1 this year), you can find something to keep you busy, even if it’s just biker bingo and burnouts and the like. It’s definitely a cruiser-centric event, but if that’s your jam, check it out.


  1. Me and my cousins go to the Atlanticade Rally in Moncton, NB. held the third week of june. Great folks running it, well organized and they break up large group rides into smaller groups of 25, which is safer and gives you a chance to get to know the folks your riding with. Don’t miss it.

  2. Is this a printed magazine or just on line?? Reason I ask is my wife and 6 of her friends are on the cover and would love to get them a copy for a keep sake.

  3. There *IS* a Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness (HUMM) in Canada (BC) this year!! HUMM Monashees, July 19-21, 2019, also in Nakusp, BC… the weekend after the Canwest Travellers Meeting, so may as well make a family holiday of it. The dual sport and off-road riding in the area is stellar.
