Daytona Bike Week Making Big Changes

March 21, 2018

If you’ve never been to Daytona Bike Week, you may have missed it forever. At least as it was in its past glory. 

According to reports from local Daytona newspapers, this year’s Daytona Bike Week will be the last one that will see vendors taking over Riverfront Park on the north end of Beach Street. And this year’s Biketoberfest also has its days numbered for the downtown area. 
City commissioners voted to terminate a contract with Biker Threads LLC, the company that hosts itinerant vendors at the park during Bike Week and Biketoberfest events. Vendors were permitted to set up shop for Bike Week’s 77th year and will be allowed back once more in the fall for Biketoberfest.

“The Biker Threads lease was terminated because the city wants to implement improvements detailed in the Riverfront Park Master Plan,” Daytona Beach spokeswoman Susan Cerbone wrote in a statement to The News-Journal. “The agreement necessitated a one-year notice clause for termination by either party. This year’s lease for Bike Week and Biketoberfest will be the final year.”

There will be plenty of stuff going at places like Destination Daytona and others, just not along the traditional stretch of Beach Street.
