Route 66 was the path of migrants, dreamers and desperadoes in the 1950’s and many of the route’s classic restaurants, gas stations and nostalgic landmarks are preserved just as they were. The people, the land and the scenery all lend to the mixture that makes this wonderful road so beautifully addictive. And what better way to see it than on a motorcycle.
Since it’s birth, this amazing motorcycle challenge has accumulated 750,000 miracle miles for one of Ireland’s finest hospitals.
This is a bi-annual trip and it has been running since 2002. The total trip takes 14 days and will see our bikers and pillions travel through 9 states and 4 different time zones.Traveling from Illinois through Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and finally California.
The Irish 66ers set off again this year and this time our very own Master Technician joined riding across the states on one of our very own bikes. They travelled over 2500 miles and seen some amazing places on this epic adventure in aid of Temple Street Children's Hospital Foundation.
For their final journey the crew were given a heroes welcome into Santa Monica with a Police escort, low flying helicopters and saluting firefighters.
A final word from Paul:
"Thanks to everyone who made this possible, I'm forever grateful as without you all this would not have happened"
