Thousands of Bikes Gear Up to Roll in 2012 Florida Bike Week

Land Rover Merritt Island, your trusted Land Rover dealership in Merritt Island, FL, has some fantastic news for all bike enthusiasts. The much anticipated Florida Bike week 2012 is finally here! The event kicks off on March 9, so grab your leather jacket and get ready to catch live in action some of the most exciting events like motorcycle racing, live music and street festivals.

Throughout Bike Week, different events will take place in the Daytona, DeLand and Orlando areas. However, the epicentre of this gala event is Daytona where about 500,000 people are anticipated to participate in this annual 10-day event starting from March 9 and running until the 18th.

You can remember the bikes from Old School Chopper Show at Willie’s Tropical Tattoo in Ormond Beach or catch a glimpse at what is to come during the Daytona Progressive International show. You can also enjoy live music at any of the biker bars and saloons during the festivity. If an adrenaline rush is what you seek, then don’t miss the Daytona Supercross and Daytona 200, both featuring the world’s best motorcycle riders battling it out on some of the toughest courses around.

This year’s Bike Week is pushed back one week later than normal as the Super Bowl and Daytona 500 were organized one week later than normal. This only means there can be a little more mingling of the biker crowds with the spring breakers on the beachside!

Florida is all set to enjoy this festive mood. Orlando Harley-Davidson is next in the line-up which will be featuring a hard-rocking 9-day concert with headliners Soul Asylum. Many exciting events including the infamous coleslaw wrestling at Sopotnik's Cabbage Patch in Samsula are also scheduled in the DeLand, Sanford areas – so no matter where you are, you can participate in any of these annual celebrations.
