Today, after breakfast you will be met by your Guide. Together you will collect your bike for the tour and journey up to Santa Fe, where the rest of the group are enjoying a day of rest and relaxation in one of the oldest (and highest, at over 2250 m) state capitals in the USA. In the afternoon, enjoy time to explore Santa Fe's numerous art galleries, specialty shops and museums, all within easy walking distance of our hotel. Roam around the beautiful downtown plaza taking in its unique combination of Native American and Spanish colonial architecture. There’s also a beautiful ride up to Taos, a small town known for its native American pueblos and surrounding artist’s colonies, inhabited by the likes of painter Georgia O’Keefe and photographer Ansel Adams. Ride up along the Rio Grande river valley, and back down through the twisty mountain roads to Santa Fe.

Day 3: Santa Fe - Gallup, NM - 225 miles, 4.5 hrs
Day 3: Santa Fe - Gallup, NM

It’s time to get back on the road and out into the deserts of the southwest, to our first stop for lunch in Old Town Albuquerque. After we eat you’ll have some time to walk around old town, do a bit of sightseeing and some souvenir shopping. Leaving old town, we ride onward on central avenue, which is Route 66, and out of town. Then we head on through the splendour of New Mexico’s natural beauty, ending the day in the old railroad town and Native American Indian stronghold of Gallup and our historic El Rancho hotel.

Day 4: Gallup – Williams, AZ - 240 miles, 5 hrs
Day 4: Gallup – Williams, AZ

This morning we say goodbye to New Mexico and ride into Arizona’s spectacular deserts. Our first stop is the Painted Desert & Petrified Forest National Park, where we take our time riding through the park stopping to take in its natural beauty and colourful geology. Afterward we stop in Holbrook to see the Wigwam Motel’s tepee-shaped rooms on our way to lunch. Then it’s time to “Take it Easy” with the Eagles, “standin’ on a corner in Winslow Arizona”, before continuing to our hotel in the town of Williams, the last Route 66 Town to be passed by interstate 40 in 1984, and gateway to one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon.

Day 5: Williams - 120 miles, 3 hrs
Day 5: Williams

Today is our full day to enjoy the splendour and immensity of the Grand Canyon. We’ll ride 60 miles from Williams to the canyon’s south rim, We have time to explore on our own and see the canyon in your own time. The rode along the south rim has numerous viewpoints and be sure to go out to the Desert View area for the best perspective of the canyon. We strongly recommend a helicopter ride for a bird’s eye view of the vastness of the canyon. We’ll meet up later for a sunset ride back to Williams for a nice dinner and a chance to review out pictures of today.

Day 6: Williams – Needles, CA - 250 miles, 6 hrs
Day 6: Williams – Needles, CA

We start the day by riding to the small town of Seligman for the best breakfast on the route, and give ourselves some time for shopping at its many Route 66 shops. Afterward we make our way through the wide open chaparral scenery to Hackberry and then Kingman, self-styled ‘Capital of Route 66’. Then comes what is referred to as the ‘curviest’ part of the Route, the Oatman Highway, a twisting ride over the Black Mountains. We’ll stop in Oatman to see one of the few remaining old west gold mining towns and its wild burros, set free when the miners abandoned the mines. Finally, we descend out of the mountains and cross over the Colorado River, and into our last state, California. Tonight we’ll overnight in Needles, another historic Route 66 town.

Day 7: Needles – Victorville, CA - 175 miles, 3 hrs
Day 7: Needles – Victorville, CA

We start the day by riding around the Spirit Mountains into the, desolate and hot Mojave Desert. We’ll ride through the almost abandoned town of Goffs, to a quick rest break at the oasis in Fenner. Next it’s onward to Amboy, located in the middle of nowhere, to check out Roy’s Motel and Café. We’ll continue to our lunch stop in Barstow and then on to see Elmer’s Bottle Tree ranch. After a hot day riding through the desert our hotel’s refreshing pool beckons us to take a cool dip and relax before our final day of riding tomorrow.

 

Day 8: Victorville - Los Angeles - 140 miles, 3.5 hrs
Day 8: Victorville - Los Angeles

Our big adventure comes to an end today with our ride to Los Angeles. Much of the road has been lost, but the end of the Mother Road, Santa Monica Pier, is worth the hectic ride. We take our time going to the end marker plaque, and then have a nice lunch on the pier. Afterwards you’ll have some time to look around and dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean, this really is journey’s end! All that remains for us to return the motorcycles later that afternoon, get a ride to the hotel and enjoy our Farewell Dinner.

Day 9: Depart Los Angeles Depart
Day 9: Depart Los Angeles
