Route 66: Chicago - Los Angeles

18 days - 4000 km (2485 miles)

The tour program describes the main attractions for the 19-day tour on the world famous, old, legendary and historic U.S. Route 66, also known as "The Mother Road". Route 66 has throughout history been the road for migrants, dreamers, desperadoes and a whole generation of holidaymakers, who explored the road to the west. The 1950s were the Route 66's peak. Thousands of cars drove "bumper-to-bumper" to experience the western emigration route. Hotels, motels, and the "new America" grew up everywhere.

Much of Route 66's original roads, restaurants, gas stations, and nostalgic landmarks are preserved just as they were in the 50's. Hence the famous and nostalgic Route 66 is a heaven for motorcycle riding.

Note: The first Route 66 tour in June each year is one day longer because it includes the Chicago Blues Festival (the world's largest). The same goes for the last Route 66 tour in May, starting in Los Angeles and ending with the Chicago Blues Festival.
