Street Closures Requested for “Kick’n It in Cody” this June
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 31, 2022
The Park County Travel Council is asking the City of Cody to close Sheridan Avenue and three other streets in anticipation of a major motorcycle event in June.
The Cody Country Chamber of Commerce distributed a message from Ryan Hauck, Executive Director of the Park County Travel Council. Hauck addressed his message to downtown Cody business owners.
The Harley Owners Group (HOG) will be hosting their Rocky Mountain Rally in Cody from June 23-26. As many as 900 Harley-Davidsons and their Rocky Mountain Region riders will be rolling into Cody for the event.
To accommodate their bike show, the Park County Travel Council is requesting street closures on the evening of June 23.
The streets to be closed are the span of Sheridan Avenue and all three side streets between the Irma Hotel and Cody United Methodist Church.
On the evening of June 23, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., there will be proposed road closures on
- Sheridan Ave from 12th St. to 14th St.
- 12th St. from Sheridan Ave to Beck Ave
- 13th St. from Sheridan Ave to Beck Ave
- 14th St. from Sheridan Ave to Beck Ave.
These closures will be for a motorcycle rally called Kick’n It In Cody. The event includes a bike show, motorcycle games, and an outdoor concert.
Furthermore, Hauck also says there will be a special vendor permit and open container permit for the evening.
From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., event-goers can openly enjoy a brew on Sheridan Avenue.
“If you are able to serve drinks from your business,” Hauck advises, “I would recommend serving in plastic cups so the rally members may take advantage of the open container permit through your business.”
Hauck says Cody residents are welcome and encouraged to participate in Kick’n It In Cody.
“These rally members are here to enjoy our amazing destination and spend money in your businesses,” Hauck says.
Hauck will be appearing before the Cody City Council during its next meeting on Tuesday, April 5. At that meeting, the Council will decide whether the June 23 closures will be allowed.
