The Great High Prairie is excited to be hosting lunch for the Motorcycle Cannonball at the Colorado Welcome Center in Lamar. Bring your family down to enjoy all the motorcycles and fun.
The Motorcycle Cannonball is a cross-country challenge for riders with motorcycles that were manufactured in 1933 or earlier and is the most difficult antique endurance run in the world.
This year’s event will see close to 100 riders traversing the back roads of the United States. We will depart from Virginia Beach, Virginia, and arrive in Oceanside, California, for this 17-day endurance run covering 3,800 miles. This endeavor is extremely challenging, as riders and machines could endure fatigue, mental exhaustion, cold, heat, elevations, and all the ferocious elements of Mother Nature, not to mention the demands of keeping their vintage machines in running order. Riders will navigate the Motorcycle Cannonball course with the assistance of paper maps (no GPS routing allowed).
