2016 Cannonball Run - Ride of the Century

Recommended Posts

I stumbled into something I would have planned my day around, had I been aware of it. The Cannonball finished today in Carlsbad, my home town. For this 100th anniversary run, all the bikes had to be made in 1916 or earlier. They finished their 3,000 mile cross country journey today. Here are pics in a slideshow:

And here's some more info about the event:

I saw a bunch of them riding North on Pacific Coast Highway today. It was really cool to seem them on the move, instead of in museums or shows. Realizing that they were on the final leg of a cross-country adventure... even better.

Yeah - I got the T-shirt too. I was with my two youngest daughters. We just got out of the ocean from surfing and all these vintage bikes were going by. Even the support, ride-along, bikes were cool - old BMWs and Harleys mostly. Saw a couple new Moto Guzzi Norges that I think might have been support riders. And then all the trucks and trailers ready to pick up the finishers - and that beautifully restored Excelsior that had a mangled front-end.
