Documentary to look at Harley Bike Week and Bikefest

Ricky Kelly had been coming to Myrtle Beach for 20 years and on a recent trip, he saw swarms of police making their way to the beach as well.

He began asking questions and found out the police were moving in for Atlantic Beach Bikefest during Memorial Day weekend. When he’d taken the trek from Durham, N.C., just weeks earlier, he didn’t see the same amount of police.

“I always felt that there was a story to tell here,” said Kelly, who is producing and directing a documentary called “A Tale of Two Beaches” that will look at similarities and differences of Harley Davidson Bike Week, a rally with predominantly white bikers traditionally earlier in May along the Grand Strand, and this weekend’s Bikefest with predominantly black bikers.
