Ideas For Your Escapades!
Stick to Route 66 or make a detour to the Sturgis Rally and why not raise money along the way?
Route 66 is one of the original US highways, established in 1926.
It runs from Chicago (Illinois) to Los Angeles, passing through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
The route is 2,448 miles long.
Make your own plans and create your own itinerary or join a guided tour for all or part of the journey. We work closely with H-C Travel who will be able to assist those of you who like to have the reassurance of having accomodation pre-arranged.
Sturgis takes place in the Black Hills of South Dakota over the first full week of August. More specifically;
6th-12th August 2012
5th-11th August 2013
4th-10th August 2014
Attendance in 2010 was estimated at 600,000 to 700,000 bikes and the event includes races, music, food, rallies and beauty contests.
Chicago to Sturgis: From 937 miles
Sturgis to Los Angeles: From 1363 miles
James Cargo will donate £30 to charity for every participating bike. Feel free to suggest a chairty that you think is particularly worthy! Why not get sponsorship for your journey and help your favourite charity as well?
A lovely message from Bob after flying in from the USA to start his European motorcycle trip with James Cargo Motorcycling Shipping:
?Everything went very well and I would like to thank Jim and Steve for their excellent work in getting the bike prepped. Also Matthew in the office for his help with the paperwork.
Everyone that I came in contact with asked if there was anything I needed, am I being helped and please have some coffee. Truly felt at home with such great people.
Thanks again to James Cargo for your help and I'll be back the latter part of September for shipment back to the USA."
David from James Cargo will be taking part in the March Moto Madness this weekend. Kitted up ready to go on road tyres!
4000 Miles for Hounds First.
Matt Tipper is riding 4000 miles across the USA on his scooter (Shipped by James Cargo Motorcycle Shipping) to raise money for Hounds First Sighthound Rescue. Please share this post and consider sponsoring him.
Matt says; After battling with severe depression last year I decided it was time to set myself a challenge. I had always wanted to cross the USA on my scooter but the illness had always talked me out of even starting to plan such a trip. After a relationship ended I hit rock bottom and decided that now was the time to prove to myself that I could do it.
The plan is to leave ride nearly 4000 miles in 30 days from coast to coast of America alone on my 200cc scooter. I will be stopping off at as many of the world largest roadside attractions along the way. Included on this list are the world?s largest shoe, largest knitting needle, largest artichoke and the world?s largest clothes peg. I fly out to JFK on the 11th of May.
I decided to use my adventure to raise some funds for a charity. I first contacted a couple of mental health charities but they weren?t very supportive so instead I decided to raise money for something very close to my heart DOGS.
Hounds first are a charity that specialise in the rehabilitation and rescue of sighthounds (greyhounds, lurchers, whippets and so on). They need to raise up to £4000 a month to pay for vets bills, food, transport and medicines so they are a very worthy cause.
If anybody can spare a few quid to donate to such a fantastic cause then they can do so at my just giving page here -https://www.justgiving.com/Matt-Tipper1
Sitting on Matts lap is his Iggy Franco who won?t be coming on the trip - he will be kept nice and warm at home.
