Coast to Coast Endurance Run. Held every two years on vintage motorcycles. Next event will be in 2021 as we travel from Sault Sainte Marie, MI to South Padre Island, TX on Pre 1930 Motorcycles.
With our inaugural event in 2010 a small band of riders proved that antique motorcycles could indeed be put to the ultimate test. A test that would pit rider and machine against the North American continent. Following in the tracks of our forefathers these brave riders followed a tradition that was over a century in the making. They made history.
Now after five successful events, the Cannonball has become an American institution. Bringing in riders, and collectors from all over the world. Restorations have taken on a new meaning as skilled engine builders have had to reevaluate what it takes to put a 100 year old motorcycle coast to coast. Aside from using their machines for the purposes they were originally intended for, riders are also learning the meaning of the word endurance. Mainly that it pertains to them as much as it does their motorcycle. Nearly 300 miles per day is not easy.
In 2021 we are planning something very special; a North to South route taking us from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. In order to qualify for this next event riders will be required to have at least a 90 year old motorcycle. As in the years past, a very limited number of entrants will be allowed. Only 100 riders will be chosen to participate in this historic endeavor.
Although each particular stop has yet to be confirmed, we have planned out a route that is both scenic and challenging while still being doable for our smallest single speed motorcycles. On Thursday September 9th 100 riders will depart Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and travel 4300 miles across America to end up in South Padre Island, Texas on Sunday, September 26th. Most of the route will be on two-lane back roads with less than 100 miles on interstate highways. An ambitious ride to say the least, averaging around 300 miles per day this will be a true endurance run.
