Mr. WALBERG. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize the upcoming Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which will be celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
Each August, freedom-loving bikers, racers, and motorcycle enthusiasts gather in Sturgis, South Dakota, to celebrate this annual event.
From the first Black Hills Motor Classic rally in 1938, Sturgis has expanded from a single race to a weeklong event attended by hundreds of thousands of people from across the U.S. and the globe. This year, organizers are anticipating well over 1 million people will descend upon the small town of 6,600.
As co-chair of the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus, I want to offer my best wishes to the attendees of this year's event. We hope for good weather, safety, and another successful week celebrating motorcycles and the freedom to ride.
