It’s not too early to start thinking about the 2018 version of the Scooter Cannonball Run. Not at all.

Mukilteo, Wash. was the finish line for 2016’s event, which saw 34 scoots traverse the 3000 miles from Florida.

Event organizers recently announced 2018’s start and end points:


 

Since the previous event ran east to west, it will go the opposite direction in 2018, starting from Morro Bay, Calif. (near San Luis Obispo on the south central coast).

Morro Bay is sort of famous for the big rock (City of Morro Bay, California)

The finish line will be in another place with a famous rock.


 

Plymouth, Mass. is indeed where the Pilgrims landed. You can see a replica of the Mayflower.

Dates are to be determined, as is the route. You can get the latest info at the Scooter Cannonball Run forum: forum.scootercannonballrun.com

While a few competitors have simply gotten a bike and ridden it, most do at least some preparation. One of these can save you time on each stage.

I would love to do this. Let’s see what happens.
