What you did not know is a local Forsyth County resident, Stevie T, a founder and producer along with his associate are planners and organizers of "Burning Bike" located at the Fastlane Campgrounds. They have been running a swap meet for about 20 years at the Volusia County Fairgrounds. When the camping area came available 5 years ago they aquired it. Camping for 100 RVs full hookup and primitive area for about 3000 campers. Then 5 years ago they started "Burning Bike" trademarked the name and have an annual bike burn on the last Friday of bike week. Campers receive free passes to the swap meet and Burning Bike along with free entertainment nightly.
The annual Burning Bike continues a tradition that started long ago in the spirit of a lifestyle that so many bikers hold dear. There will be daily bike shows/exhibits along with largest swap-meet in the central Florida area and on burn night a Bikini contest. All leading to the burning of our namesake bike. The giant motorcycle that has stood as the events centerpiece is crafted entirely of reclaimed wood and is sure to cast flames long in to the night. There will be bands and fun. Come sign the bike anytime during bike week and the burn will send your message off into the heavens.

The easy access parking and short/long term campsites make for a safe, secure, and convenient place to enjoy the festivities, and all that the area has to offer.
