Centennial Ride

02/2012 - On February 14, 2011 Arizona turned 100. There were many ways of celebrating the anniversary but we thought this one was pretty unusual.

Over 5000 motorcycles participated in a 16-mile ride from Mesa to Phoenix to celebrate the state's 100 years of statehood. It took 47 minutes for all the motocycles to leave the staging area & it had a 20 mile string of bikes ! When the first motorcycles started reaching the destination, there were still 4 miles worth waiting to leave the starting point!
