Daytona Bike Week 2012
March 9, 2012 by staff
Daytona Bike Week 2012, Motorists throughout Central Florida will be sharing the road with thousands of motorcyclists as Bike Week opens Friday in Daytona Beach.
The 71st annual Bike Week will rumble into Daytona Beach on Friday and continue through March 18. The 10-day celebration, dubbed the “World’s Largest Motorcycle Event,” brings every aspect of motorcycle culture to Central Florida, including bike rallies, manufacturer displays, races and stunt shows.
Bikers from across the country will make the trek to Daytona to show off their Harleys, Hondas and Kawasakis on Main and Beach streets. Bike Week spokesman Kevin Killian said the event is expected to attract 500,000 riders and other motorcycle enthusiasts during the course of the week.
Typically celebrated the first week in March, this year’s Bike Week was moved back a week to accommodate the schedule change of the Daytona 500, which was held one week later this year.
After a seven-year hiatus, the Bike Week Community Appreciation Parade will return. Sidelined in 2004, the police-escorted parade, sponsored by Harley-Davidson, will take place at 9 a.m. March 17. The parade will begin at Ocean Center on North Atlantic Avenue and end at Daytona International Speedway.
Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes said that, with so many motorcycles on the roads, motorists and bikers must be patient, cautious and “share the road” during the next week. She said to look twice for bikers, especially when pulling into traffic and making left turns.
