 The Progressive IMS Outdoors tour, the nation’s largest consumer motorcycle tour, is heading to Pennsylvania. Continuing its presence as the nation’s largest consumer motorcycle tour, Progressive IMS Outdoors is an evolution of the Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows® tour’s nearly 40-year stint and has transitioned to a new open outdoor festival-like experience to promote enthusiasts of all ages and levels to come together to engage with products, each other, and the industry.

The New Rider Course returns in partnership with Zero Motorcycles and Yamaha pedal assist bicycles, allowing non-licensed motorcyclists to experience, first-hand, the thrill of two-wheels on a speed-limited electric motorcycle and take their first steps toward becoming a new rider. 

New this year to Discover The Ride is the introduction of Strider in the Kids Zone providing kids as young as two access to interactive Adventure and Balance courses; plus IMS is giving back to the community through an all-new partnership with All Kids Bike where IMS is sponsoring a fleet of Strider bikes to be donated to an elementary school in each market along the tour.
