What is the V2V you ask?

ABOUT THE EVENT

In 1921, a group of American citizens formed a group, known as the Victory Highway Association, to create a transcontinental highway to commemorate American Forces members who were killed in action during World War 1. The highway, which existed between 1921 and 1938, went through numerous configurations and iterations using existing and specially constructed roads, bridges and ferries. This highway would be known as the Victory Highway and it crossed the country between New York City and San Francisco, California.
 In the spirit and celebration of all veterans, and those who gave us their ultimate sacrifice, the Victory Motorcycle Club has been completing this trek for 20 years.

 Thanks to all the past V2V Chairmen, Leg Captains, and Participants that made it possible to declare this year as our 21st.

 This year’s two week, thirteen leg journey will begin in San Francisco, CA and head east across the western desert, rising to the Rocky Mountains, rolling through the agricultural plains of the Midwest, and finishing at Staten Island, NY

 This year the ride begins on 6/22/2021 and ends 7/4/2021 in Staten Island.

The ride consists of 13 legs, each leg is 1 day and led by a Leg Captain who has the baton, a jar of sand from the Pacific Ocean, and the Spot which allows the entire membership to track the progress of the ride as it goes across the country.

Small correction - the sand jar (which began somewhere around 7-8 years ago) is emptied out at the end of each year's relay.  This year, the sand will come from the Pacific side and be emptied into the Atlantic side - next year reversed, etc.  Here's a pic of the jar as it was filled on a Rhode Island beach in anticipation of traveling across the US from 2015.  The Long River Riders led the charge that year.

Hotel information will be listed on a separate thread for each leg, as soon as the leg captains confirm the locations and get the information to me.  Soon!

Yes, a huge thanks to ALL the leg captains.

Posted before, but here are some of the previous V2V t-shirt designs.  (PLEASE let me have a photo if you have one of any of the missing ones).

It is fantastic that the Club will be running this for the 21st time this year.  WELL DONE Viv, all the Leg Captains, and all involved.
