TGPCHPCMY2KMR - R.I.P. 
The Great Pacific Coast Highway Pacific Coast Motorcycle Year 2xxx Motorcycle Ride

ran from 1999 (the preview ride) through 2015 - the final ride south.


"For some people, a road is more than just a strip of pavement connecting where they are with where they want to be. It's the reason for leaving home in the first place.

The Amalfi Drive in Italy is a road like that. The Blue Ridge Parkway is too.

And so is Highway 1 in California, that magical ribbon of blacktop that snakes along the very edge of the continent. The place this motorcycle is named for. The Pacific Coast."

The preceding quote is from the 1994 Honda Pacific Coast Motorcycle brochure, copyright American Honda Motor Co., Inc.


Over the years,
the ride evolved into three separate editions:


The "Classic" edition which started in Eureka, California and proceeded southward on CA1, the Pacific Coast Highway, the highway for which our bikes were named. This edition occured on odd numbered years and, thus, was run every other year: 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015. The itinerary and other pages for this edition is here.

The "Northern" edition which started in Fort Bragg, California and proceeded northward on CA1 and continued through northern California, Oregon and Washington on US101 which, historically, has also been considered part of the Pacific Coast Highway. This edition was alternated on even numbered years with the Sierra edition: 2006, 2010. The itinerary and other pages for this edition is here.

The "Sierra Nevada" edition which was based in Cameron Park, California and which consisted of 5 daily loops through the Sierra Nevada mountain range, starting and ending each day in Cameron Park. This edition was alternated with the Northern edition on even numbered years: 2008, 2012, 2014. The itinerary and other pages for this edition is here.
