Why is Bike week the Worlds Largest Motorcycles Events
Similar to its northern counterpart (Sturgis Motorcycle Rally), Daytona Bike Week has been running for almost 70 consecutive years. The event was first created in 1937 as a motorcycle race – one which occurred over a sand and road course. This tradition lasted until 1942 when the American Motorcycle Association canceled the event due to World War II, the Daytona Chamber of Commerce’s website says.
Although the race was canned, people still showed up for an unofficial party that became Daytona Bike Week. Currently, the rally attracts 500,000 bikers over a 10-day stretch and includes a number of parties, various forms of entertainment, camping and even weddings.
With warm weather and close proximity to tourist attractions like the Kennedy Space Center, Silver Springs state park and themed water parks, Daytona Bike Week provides an avenue of entertainment for every biker in town, making it The Worlds Largest Motorcycle Event.
