Rides and Routes at Daytona Bike Week – Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys®
It has been one heck of a winter for most Americans – even parts of Florida saw some snow this year but the weather forecast for Daytona Beach, FL is looking good for bike week (No Snow). Here are some suggestions for rides and events to help you get the most of Bike Week 2014.
· “The Loop”: approximately 22 miles long, it is a rider’s dream. Featuring long, graceful curves, open road, beautiful scenery, and of course, the Florida sunshine. Passing through the Tomoka and Bulow Creek State Parks, you can really see the beauty that the state has to offer. Bulow Creek State Park is home to the Fairchild Oak tree, one of Florida’s oldest living oaks at over 400 years of age.
· Always interesting rides, the beaches of Daytona are a great cruising destination. Florida is one of the few states in the country that allows vehicles access to their beaches and you can ride for miles up and down the coast. The officials even set up traffic lanes.
· The Pediatric Muscular Dystrophy Association Women’s ride hosted by Harley-Davidson: on March 13th where hundreds of women riders will line up at the Beach Street Park and ride in support of children with Muscular Dystrophy. The route takes them all the way to Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona. Minimum donation to participate is $50.
Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys® announced as ‘Official Attorney Sponsor’ of Daytona Bike Week.
· History buffs can take a ride north to St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, which was founded in 1565. Head north on the A1A and ride the approximately 50 miles to St. Augustine. The route will take you along the scenic coastal path until you reach the Bridge of Lions which means you’ve reached your destination.
· Ride the Daytona Infield: Take the tunnels under the track and you will find yourself in the infield. From there you can ride throughout the spacious infield of this track to your heart’s content. You are free to do this throughout the week, with admission usually free, barring any special events going on at the track.
· Kennedy Space Center: Just take I-95 South for about an hour and you will be at the Space Center. Once there, you can take a tour and see many of the large number of vehicles that have been used for space travel, as well as the warehouses where they are stored and the equipment used to launch them.
