Home of the RIVER CITY BIKE WEEK, MUSIC FESTIVAL & SWAP MEET
Started in 2009 this event takes place the during the month of August and includes not only a week-ending music festival in downtown Wheeling, WV but encompasses events in the surrounding area. River City Restaurant and Banquet Facility is the primary sponsor and as you view these pages you will undoubtedly recognize numerous other sponsors who have helped to bring live local music and motorcyclists together for a week of fun and frolic with a good dash of civility.
Why is this site called EXIT ZERO you might ask and the answer is simply that there is only one Exit 0 on the entire Interstate system covering the whole United States and there is only one of those. Exit 0 is located in Wheeling, WV on the westbound side of I-70 as you come out of the Wheeling Tunnel across the Fort Henry Bridge and it empties onto Wheeling Island on Zane Street. There is no eastbound Exit 0.
UPDATES as they become avaiable
There are numerous happenings in the Wheeling area for motorcyclists in particular. Check back here often for updates.
The Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall was in Moundsville, WV the weekend of August 23-26, 2012. A group rode down from Mary's M/C Haven and Steelbilly Mechanix to view this tribute to those who have fought to keep us riding and breathing free.

Notifying Visitors of Site Enhancements
One of the many reasons for holding a motorcycle event is for camaraderie and friendship. These would be lost if there were not good relationships between the many motorcycle organizations gracing the Upper Ohio Valley and the surrounding states. The many groups represented by the colors and patches you might see at any given gathering in this area have performed numerous acts of graciousness and kindness throughout their histories.Should we be able we will try to link these groups and their respective websites through this page to show respect and honor to their efforts as both motorcyclists and fellow human beings.
