All About Daytona Bike Week
Check Out What's Going on This Week in Sunny Florida!
Bike Week at Daytona Beach, Florida is the biggest motorcycle event in the world. This year it runs from March 6 through March 16—a seven-day week just isn’t long enough. Most of the companies in the motorcycle universe and hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts gather to share information and to celebrate, not only in Daytona Beach itself, but in surrounding communities as well.
You can start planning your Bike Week activities early by downloading the 2015 Bike Week App at www.officialbikeweek.com. The App includes a wide range of Bike Week activities, from brand-name exhibits to races to the grand swap meet to suggested rides.
A good way to start is to visit the Official Bike Week Welcome Tent on Beach St. or the Daytona Chamber of Commerce office to pick up an Official Bike Week Pocket Guide. The Guide includes information about festivals, contests, parades, rides, concerts, and bar and restaurant specials. A Treasure Hunt Passport is also included. You get the Passport stamped at various locations in and around Daytona Beach, then bring it to the Welcome Center to receive the official 2015 Bike Week commemorative coin and to take your photo in front of the Official Bike Week photo backdrop.
If you can’t go to Bike Week, you can still enter the drawing for the Official Bike Week Motorcycle. For the past 21 years the Daytona Beach Community Foundation has held the drawing; proceeds go to improve Bike Week events. Since only 4500 tickets are sold, you have a solid chance of winning. The drawing is at noontime March 14 at the stage at Riverside Park in downtown Daytona Beach, but you don’t have to be present at the drawing to win. The $50.00 price of the ticket is tax-deductible. You can see the build in American Iron Magazine. The bike is also pictured here. That site also lists its specs and the folks who built it out. And that’s where you click to buy your ticket. But do hurry because the tickets sell out every year.
