Motorcycles on Meridian
Monument Circle and South Meridian Street in downtown Indianapolis will be a flurry of engine roars and leather. Motorcyclists and MotoGP fans will gather downtown starting at 7 p.m. August 8 and 4 p.m. August 9 to celebrate the Red Bull Indianapolis GP with thousands of other enthusiasts.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway introduced the inaugural Motorcycles on Meridian in 2008. The streets of downtown Indianapolis were an ocean of bikes and people, moving in waves. The event is for people with and without bikes. Interested parties with no steel horse of their own are welcome to walk around at this free event and marvel at the impressive choppers and sport bikes. On these two nights in August, the motorcycle culture of Indianapolis is open for everyone to enjoy.
The entrance for the 2014 Motorcycles on Meridian is through Monument Circle; cyclists should enter the route from Monument Circle and continue onto Meridian. View map of downtown Indianapolis for entrances and locations of events for the Motorcycles on Meridian.
The Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend is jam-packed with activities. For three days, all three classes of the MotoGP World Championship practice, qualify and then race. Motorcycle riders, fans of events at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and hardcore MotoGP fans enjoy the highest level of motorcycle racing on the most impressive race bikes in the world at the track, and check out the many cool scenes and events around town away from the track.
