Motorcycle Cannonball 2014 #57 Colorado

SCHEDULE

4/13/14
Approximately a two-week schedule. We start on a Friday in Daytona Beach, and finish in Tacoma two weeks later on a Sunday. The route is 17 days total, 16 days on the road, and one rest day in Junction City, Kansas. The day off is on a Friday, a week after the start, a weekday when shops are open. The two days before the start in Daytona Beach we will have registration, vehicle inspection, an optional practice run, a short classroom session, and a hosted welcome reception.

Most days 300 miles or shorter. Our goal was for all days to be at most 300 miles, but in some areas there just aren’t enough cities at appropriate locations with sufficient hotel rooms for a group our size. Two days are longer, both are after the rest day. The typical schedule for a 300 mile day ,assuming the motorcycle maintains 50 mph on straight flat roads, will be an 8:00 am start and a 4:00 pm finish, for a total of 8 hours on the road. This schedule includes a 45 minute lunch break ,and three 15 minute refueling breaks. Time will also be set aside for viewing scenic and historic sites.

Short days for the Start and Finish. The first and last days will each be the shortest days, with a late morning start in Daytona Beach, and a mid-afternoon grand finish in Tacoma.

A scenic route. The run will start at the world’s most famous beach on the east coast of Florida. Daytona Beach is rich in motorcycle racing history and will be a fitting Official Start. The route will then take us through the lakes and forests of northern Florida and into Georgia and the Great Smoky Mountains. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, we will be treated to a fantastic hosted reception at Coker Tire World Headquarters and Museum. Traveling through the heart of Tennessee we will visit the Cyclemos Museum in Red Boiling Springs. After riding through the “Land Between The Lakes” region in Kentucky, we will cross the Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Crossing the Ozarks in Missouri will bring us to the wide-open plains of Kansas, where we will have our one rest day. Our riders will meet the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains at Colorado Springs where we will be stopping at the Rocky Mountain Motorcycle Museum. Famed motorcycle artist David Uhl will be hosting a big event for us at his studio in Golden, Colorado, the night before we climb 12,000-foot Loveland pass to cross the Continental Divide the first of three times. The entire route through Colorado promises to be spectacular.

Entering Utah through Arches National Park in the Moab region, we will make our way to Springville, Utah, where riders will be treated to a private tour of Jeff Decker’s personal studio where he creates his motorcycle masterpieces in bronze. The newly opened Legends Motorcycle Museum of Springville will also be hosting a reception for our riders. As we leave the shores of the Great Salt Lake we will travel out into the desert with a brief stop at the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats. The High Desert of Utah and Nevada will give way to the mountains and forests of western Idaho as we follow the Little Salmon River all the way to the Washington border. From the Columbia River Basin we will enter the Cascade Mountain Range and Mount Rainer National Park. The Grand Finish of the Run on the shores of the Puget Sound in Tacoma will be at the world-class LeMay Museum.

Avoid Interstate highways. There are a few places where the interstate is the only road available. We have avoided most of those places, so the total distance traveled on interstate highways will be less than 250 miles. That only occurs in the west. All roads are paved.

Museums and receptions. We have plans for three stops at motorcycle museums, including hosted receptions. Over a dozen hosted stops at motorcycle dealers. Two hosted lunch stops, and a few city hosted events. There will also be a farewell dinner after the finish in Tacoma.
