We are adding a new section to pre-bikeweek of photos from you on what will make you come to BikeWeek (ie. too much snow up north, the aurora lights told me to, the mudslides, the forest made me too lonely, etc). Photos must be taken on or after January 1, 2004, first name only and city and a paragraph on what it is about. Photos will be censored down to a PG level (for people who love too much).
Email it to bikeweek1. The address is found at the bottom of the page at .

We have someone who wrote in about what is making them want to come to Bike Week this Year.

This is from Spirit and she lives in Gusev. She was raised up in Cape Canaveral, FL and wants to come here because her current location is too cold, not enough sunlight, a little dusty, and the place looks red all the time.
Here is a picture that she sent. Click here

Tomoka Pub has turned into Kick-Start Saloon a couple days ago.
Check out our on a upcoming article in which what organizations or persons that own some of these establishments. You will be shocked about who or what and their history. Crime never goes away.

Kick-Start Saloon has been renamed back to the bars original name of Tomoka Pub. The bar's (temporary) new owners might have overlook the fact that there is no special events in Ormond Beach.

Mr. Bad to the Bone himself (George Thorogood & the Destroyers) will be performing at the Riverside Park(the park along Beach St.) on March 6 (Sat) at 9:00pm(according to The Daytona Chamber is  listing the event at 8:00pm. That little-big motocycle store on Beach St. is listing no info at all(the people who is probably paying for George).

Styx (the 70's rock band) is coming to the Broke Spoke Saloon on March 4(Thurs) at 8:00pm. Check here for a live free broadcast since they normally exceed the county's noise ordinance.  You probably hear them on our normal bikeweek broadcast on north U.S. 1. Our north U.S. 1 broadcast is now live and the sound will be turned on at the beginning of Bike Week.

Only 4 more days before Bike Week 2004 starts.
The vendors are already setting up today on Beach St. and Main St.
Here is some photos around 5 p.m. of north U.S. 1 today and some photos of Beach and Main St. tomorrow.
