Deb and I would like to leave Chicago on/around August 8th, 2017 and spend two weeks on our GoldWing en route Santa Monica Pier. We would like to enjoy the festivities in Springfield Mo. on August 11,12, or 13 at the 'Birthplace of Route 66 Festival' and then continue the route experiencing all it has to offer. I can tow my cargo trailer if you choose to motel it or our Bunkhouse camper if you choose to camp. Tentatively we would like to take the Interstate back to Iowa in 4 - 5 days. 3 to 5 bikes would be great. Call Paul 563-590-8065 if you would like to discuss options/planning. 55 years young and recently retired. Gonna be a BLAST!

Hi Deb! We are hoping to do the route this year on our bikes. We are taking the first 2 weeks in August and will start or end in Sturgis. We are in the very early planning stages so far, we tend to wing it alot of the time lol

Great to read a response from Flower Power! Thanks for your input and hope your plans come to life as well. We have modified ours slightly, and now have a total of 4 bikes leaving Chicago on August 25th and taking all of what Route 66 delivers over the next two weeks. If anyone else is interested, or needs a car returned from Santa Monica area the second week of September to Chicago or Iowa, please let us know. Paul

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
