Gunstock Hillclimb

Wednesday 06/16
9am - 5pm

The Gunstock Hillclimb is a classic Bike Week tradition that began in 1938 when Gunstock was still in its infancy, and nowadays, fans still love to take a short drive up the road from the bustling Weirs Beach to witness this high octane competition in the Belknap mountains!

Staged by Ridge Runner Promotions and presented by Eastcoastin’ Enterprises, this adrenaline packed day of action will serve as a focal point to droves of motorcycle and dirt bike enthusiasts who visit the Lakes Region during the 98th Anniversary of Laconia Motorcycle Week. The historic 70-meter Torger Tokle Memorial Ski Jump will serve as the formidably challenging course for this year’s amateur-only competition. 

To participate in the Hillclimb as a competitor, register here by May 15.

  • Admission will be $20 cash only, at the gate, (not available online) and FREE for children 10 and under.
  • The event is BYOB, but will also feature a vended beverage garden and several food options.



Hillclimb spectators are invited to make Gunstock their home base for the week. On site camping by tent, RV, or cabin is available for this event in Gunstock’s award winning campground, but sells out very quickly! Guests are encouraged to make their plans for Bike Week early and reserve campsites as soon as possible.
