It may seem too early for Motorcycle rides in the fall, but if you follow our Travels with Harley blog, you will know that Jim and I like to prepare ahead when it comes to riding, and this coming autumn is certainly no exception.

It’s great to organize Motorcycle rides in the fall especially in the East and the Southeast.

Jim and I have had the pleasure of riding the Road King during the most beautiful season in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and would gladly do it again if given the opportunity.

Regardless of where you call home, you don’t have to pack up and drive for days to find some of the best spots for Motorcycle rides in the fall.

The Catskills

Located in the southeastern part of New York, the 6,000 square foot Catskill Mountains are home to 35 mountain peaks and 6 river systems. The Woodstock Music Festival was held in the Catskills, which is most vibrant during autumn when the gorgeous colors of fall take center stage against the wooded hillsides. The Catskills are great for Motorcycle rides in the fall as each region hosts the fall harvest with farmers markets and pick your own orchards abound. The Woodstock Farm Festival runs from June until late October and features about 15 vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables and home made goodies. Get there at the right time and you may even catch the Renaissance fair. The best time to enjoy the foliage is the last two weeks in September until mid to late October.

Aspen Colorado

Known for its winter sports, most people have no idea that the town takes its name from a tree. During autumn, the Aspen tree leaves turn a gorgeous yellow that makes them shimmer in the sun when the breeze blows. If you like Motorcycle rides in the fall you will love taking off and enjoying Aspen for the weekend before the snow starts to fall. The best time to go is mid-September until the end of the month. Although the season is short, it’s definitely worth the trip, even if it’s just for a day or two.

The Berkshires offer gorgeous fall colors that make the perfect foreground for the luscious mountainous hamlets that dot the countryside. Autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the winding roads that seem like they were made for Motorcycle rides in the fall. Take off for a weekend and spend the evening in Lenox at the Blantyre Hotel. Designed after a real castle in Scotland it was built in 1902. The best time to see autumn is from late September to mid-October peaking during the Columbus Day Weekend celebration.
