The 76th Anniversary of Bike Week in Daytona, Florida, presented by The Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce, is fast approaching. The event, which welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, is scheduled to begin on March 10 through March 19. This 10-day festival expands throughout Volusia County and provides hundreds of events for motorcycle enthusiasts to enjoy.
Daytona Beach became the home of Bike Week in 1937 with a 3.2 mile race through a beach and road course. Eventually, as the festival evolved, not all events hosted revolved around the race itself. However, tensions existed between locals and visitors, which led to the creation of a special task force by the city in cooperation with the local chamber of commerce to change the tone of the event, so that a more positive environment could flourish.
It is important to remember that, even in the midst of these festivities, safety is paramount. According to AAA, 19% of road fatalities in the state of Florida involve a motorcycle, despite the fact that motorcyclists account for only 7% of licensed motorists. With thousands of motorcyclists roaring through Daytona for Bike Week, drivers and motorcyclists alike should watch out for each other.
