Daytona Bike Week 2010 is February 26th – March 7th 2010.
Daytona Bike Week has been a tradition since January 24th, 1937. This year will be 73 years since it first started. Bike Week started as a race course on 3.2 miles of beach otherwise known as the Daytona 200 or “Handlebar Derby” by locals. Daytona’s Bike Week has gone through many changes since its origins and has now turned into a 10 day festival that spreads well into Orlando.
Daytona Beach expects approximately 500,000 bikers to attend this year’s bike week. Many bikers take in many of the Orlando attractions while visiting and touring. Some even elect to stay in Orlando and ride to Daytona (typically 45 minutes) for the large amount of activities.
If you are visiting Orlando for bike week, be sure to rent an Orlando vacation home with a private garage. Such garages will provide much needed overnight protection for your ride away from jealous prying eyes at night.
