Rally owner Carlene Thomas is hoping for the best in terms of turnout this year.

”Well I just don’t know what to expect, hopefully we’ll have a good crowd, and the gas prices, and the COVID won’t hurt us, and we’ll have a good turnout this year,” said Thomas.

Kentucky Transportation officials are reminding drivers to be alert for thousands of motorcycles and other vehicles making their way to the 2022 Sturgis Kentucky Bike Rally.
