Daytona Bike Week In Photos 2020

See motorcycle photos from the 79th edition of Daytona Bike Week.

Sand and sun, neon ground effects, big-wheel baggers and trikes—it could only be Daytona Beach Bike Week. From the party on Main Street to the races at Daytona International Speedway and, of course, the smorgasbord of vendors at Rossmeyer’s Harley-Davidson, this stretch of Florida’s Central Coast is ablaze with bikers and partygoers for the 79th annual Bike Week. For decades, this party has been a place for riders from all over the US to come show off their motorcycles and party with like-minded bikers. Despite the growing coronavirus pandemic, Daytona Beach’s motorcycle party raged on. However, in response to the COVID-19 virus, the Daytona TT and Daytona 200 races were both postponed. Nonetheless, Volusia County’s bike week was still busy, with many bars and event spaces operating as usual. Bike Week is always a blast, and this year it was a great last hoorah before the pandemic elevated across America.

Did we self-quarantine immediately upon return? Yes. Are we going back next year? Also, yes. Here are some of our favorite photos from this year’s event.

You could go a year without running into a Campagna T-Rex in the wild, but show up in Daytona and you’ll find them rolling around town in groups!

President Trump-supporting merchandise was almost as plentiful as Bike Week 2020 merch, and as you can see, the virus did not inhibit crowds.
