Route 66 was the path of migrants, dreamers and desperadoes in the 1950’s and many of the route’s classic restaurants, gas stations and nostalgic landmarks are preserved just as they were.
The total trip takes 14 days and will see our 65 bikers and pillions (97 Irish) travel through 9 states and 4 different time zones. We will travel from Illinois through Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and finally California.
As we ride this wonderful road, always on a 66er’s mind are the brave little patients in Temple Street that urgently need the best possible care that can be given to them. To date this fundraising challenge has raised over €2.5 million for sick children and the impact of this trip is visible throughout the hospital. Our big hearted bikers have helped to redevelop critical wards and purchase vital life-saving equipment this trip is for a new renal dialysis unit.
This truly is one of the most exhilarating motorcycle challenges in the world!
