Florida sunshine, thousands of hot motorcycles and a half million of your closest friends . . . Welcome to Daytona Bike Week 2014.
Daytona Bike Week 2014 (don’t let the name fool you. It’s actually a 10-day affair held March 7-16) competes with the Sturgis, South Dakota Motorcycle Rally in August as the most popular motorcycle rally in the U.S.
The 2014 Daytona event is the 73rd annual version of the rally. The festivities include motorcycle racing, concerts, parties and street festivals. Just like the Sturgis Rally, Daytona Bike Week isn’t billed as a kid-friendly event, and many of the “attractions” during the week aren’t for the faint of heart.
But if you love motorcycles, there’s no other place to be in March. It’s a true “bucket lister.”
While there is certainly a fair amount of “hard core,” full-time riders who come to Daytona, many – if not most – are what are considered “executive riders.” Executive Riders love their motorcycles for the escape they offer. Cycling allows them to ditch their suits and ties and hit the open road and let their inner child come out and play.
Riders from all over North America funnel into Florida’s East Coast for the festivities. Anyone planning to attend Daytona Bike Week should remember that accommodations fill up fast, even in areas that are days away from Daytona. For that reason, KOA locations leading into and out of Northeast Florida are great options for the Bike Week faithful.
KOAs in Southern states are usually open all year, and all welcome riders headed south. All KOAs have Cabin accommodations, and many now have KOA Deluxe Cabins with bathrooms (and some kitchens). Check your route and visit KOA.com to see what’s available at KOA’s on your way to or from Florida.
