Route 66 East to West

Illinois, United States of America, Americas

Route 66 East to West

Come ride America with us on a hired Harley Davidson motorcycle from Chicago in the east to Los Angeles on the west coast and Get your kicks on Route 66!

The tour will start in Chicago with a one way hire east/west of your choice from the Harley Davidson range. If you travel two-up enjoy the luxury and nostalgia of the ElectraGlide, for practical comfort over distance rent a TourGlide or if your roots are more Easy Rider and Peter Fonda then the Road King or Heritage Softail may be more your bag. Make sure to get your request in early to secure the bike YOU want for this holiday of your dreams!

Good things are better savoured than rushed. So we have planned a sixteen day tour that will take us all the way from Lake Michigan in Chicago across the rivers, plains, mountains, deserts and canyons of eight states and several Indian nations before delivering us on the opposite side of America - overlooking the ocean at the end of Route 66 at Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Ride along a road that evokes the real history of the United States past roadside 'Historic Route 66' motels and diners, the weatherbeaten signs of long-abandoned Drive-in movie theatres, the bizarre sculpture of Cadillac Ranch, gas stations from a bygone era, lattice steel bridges spanning rivers and gulches, Art Deco buildings, broken neon and mile upon mile of authentic Route 66 portland cement. Its all so evocative - names that log and jog in your memory from childhood films and TV: Pontiac, Bloomington, Arlington, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oatman, Seligman, Kingman, Gallup, Needles, Yukon, Amarillo, New Mexico, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, San Bernadino, Grand Canyon. You may not know where the places are right now but rest assured, on this trip you will travel through ALL of them. And isn't that the appeal of this kind of Road Trip? It's the journey. The experience. And the fact you will be doing all of this on an iconic motorcycle.

Take everything in, experience the road fully, be a part of what you find. Re-create for yourself and share with those who travel with you an affection for a time gone by. A time to be rediscovered on the Main Street of America. Welcome to the old road. Welcome to Route 66!

All accommodation has been carefully selected and pre-booked, all rooms will be en-suite and most hotels/motels have swimming pools and hot tubs. This MCi Tour has been designed and ridden by Alastair & Fionna who will ride Route 66 and be with you and are there to offer you the benefit of their advice. All you need to do is book a cheap flight on the internet and come and join us on this holiday of a lifetime!
