GALLERY: Daytona Beach Bike Week

By on March 20th, 2014

Motorcycles outnumbered cars last Sunday as the 73rd annual Daytona Beach Bike Week came to a close, drawing tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts for the 10-day event. Attendees travelled from as far as New York and Ontario and as close as Ocala and Jacksonville.

Festivities took over Main Street with live music, merchandise tents and food vendors.

The celebrations were not limited to Daytona Beach — events were also held at a number of establishments north of Ormond Beach. Among them was Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona, which saw a large turnout and a number of new motorcycle owners.
