Route 66 LA-New York

Los Angeles-Chicago-New York

We take you on our original road trip across the U.S on the legendary (historic) Route 66 highway. On this 22 day adventure, you will travel through 10 states, 3 time zones and cover 4 500 km, rediscovering what is also known as “The Mother Road” of America. You will also go an additional roundtrip for two days to New York City, staying on Manhattan and exploring the big city.

Riding on historic Route 66 is like traveling through a living museum. The landscape changes as quickly as the culture and the people along the road. You get 15 days of riding on the road out of the 22 days the trip last.  You will get to visit a variety from the big cities of Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago and New York to unique towns and villages along the road with cowboys, Indians, rednecks and every day american people as you travel through villages, small towns and landmarks.

The legendary highway will take you trough some breathtaking landscape from the Painted Desert in Arizona to the mighty Grand Canyon.

You will not only learn new cultures and places, you will also make new friends among the people you ride and travel together with on your great journey.
