The Route in 2022

There is some uncertainty as to exact route C.K. took. Some of the roads are no longer there or are inaccessible. Therefore,  it will be impossible to ride over all the exact roads upon which C.K. traveled.

The 2022 Map:

AABMC Map ThumbnailA map of the remainder of planned route is available in high-resolution form and corresponds to the table of planned enroute and overnight stops below.

Compared to other long-distance motorcycle events, the pace of this ride will be rather slow, but will still be faster than C.K.’s elapsed travel time for the same distance. With some modern safety improvements and performance enhancements, we expect to make much better time over the modern paved roads compared to the 95% dirt and gravel conditions C.K. faced. We expect to be able to averaging about 40 mph on the open road. The planned timeline below is intended to reflect time spent at planned mid-day stops for fuel or other events.
