Our Ride: Coast-To-Coast-To-Coast
We are still working on the finer details of our route this summer but here is a rough guide.
We collect our bikes in Orlando Florida on the 8th April having decided to start in the south for the warmer weather. We ride down to Key West over the 'ocean highway' to the southern most point in the continental USA where our adventure officially starts. From Key West we head up the western coast of Florida and around to New Orleans. Onwards up into Clarksdale, where they say 'blues-music' was born and then on to Memphis and Nashville.
From Nashville we ride north to St Louis and pick up 'Route 66' and then ride 'the mother road' west for some 1200 miles. We drop down into New Mexico and Arizona and then north again to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. We continue to head west to Los Angeles and Santa Monica. From here we head north riding almost the entire western seaboard of the USA and on up into Vancouver crossing the border into BC Canada. Our trip then heads back south into the USA and through the mighty Yellowstone Park and eastwards into the Dakota's and the 'Badlands.' We continue our ride east towards Milwaukee and the global HQ of Harley Davidson. From here we track the great lakes around and up towards Niagra Falls and the on towards New England and Cape Cod. Finally we head towards the 'big apple' rolling into New York City in time for the 4th July Celebrations where our journey ends.
