This 2019 journey is being undertaken in centennial tribute to Captain C.K. Shepherd’s journey one hundred years ago in 1919 on the same make, model, and year motorcycle that Shepherd rode, a 1919 Henderson Model Z-2 Four-Cylinder motorcycle. This page will be updated frequently with content, links, and images about the trip in 2019 and is expected to be the “landing page” for people to obtain authoritative information and updates about the tribute ride in 2019.
Included on this page introduction to various topics with links to obtain more information.
- The Route in 2019: Because there is occasional ambiguity as to exact route taken by C.K. and because some of the roads that C.K. rode on are no longer there or are not accessible, it will be impossible to ride over all the exact roads that C.K. took. Still, we believe we will be 95% accurate in terms of the roads taken. You will find detailed maps, notes, and a timeline on the Route page.
- Ride Along: We have a special page with information for motorcycle riders who would like to join the ride in 2019.
- The Calendar: Although a timeline of the ride is available on the Route page, we have a calendar page that will be maintained to provide as much information as possible about scheduled events prior to, during, and after the ride.
- Support: Even though this event is intended to be a tribute to C.K. Shepherd’s solo transcontinental journey in 1919, it will not truly be a success without volunteer help and participation from folks along the way. Please visit this page to learn how you can help.
