Alaska

Alaska, a breathtaking starting point and gateway to the Americas for many. Head north from Anchorage to the take a dip in the Arctic Ocean before heading south as far as you have time for.

You can explore Alaska before moving on to Canada, the USA or just keep going south until you reach the bottom of Argentina - the ride from Alaska to the tip of Argentina offers the longest North to South route in the world.

While in Alaska enjoy the stunning scenery, glaciers and if you are there at the right time of year, the wildlife. Bears with their cubs can be seen on the road, whilst moose and plenty of other wildlife make an appearance to the thrill of passers by.

It’s the ride of a lifetime and is not as expensive as you might think. Contact us for a price to freight your bike to Anchorage.

Route 66

Originally running from Chicago to Los Angeles, Route 66 (otherwise known as the Mother Road) was built in 1926 and covered nearly 2,500 miles. The route is traditionally travelled from East to West, as this was the path travelled by many seeking a better life during the vast migrations of the 1930s.

Whilst Route 66 was officially delisted from the United States Highway System in 1985 as it was all but replaced by the Interstate Highway System, long stretches still exist under what is now known as ‘Historic Route 66’.

An absolute must for anyone with a bike, we can heartily recommend this amazing road system to anyone with a sense of fun or a need to travel and meet new people. Different sections of Route 66 offer something suitable for everyone, and there is nothing more spectacular than picking and choosing the best parts of this route to ride on your very own bike.

Because of the popularity of Route 66 the shipping very often works out cheaper than hiring a bike whilst you are out there, so it is definitely worth exploring as a possibility.

For the USA you will need ESTA approval which allows you to join the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), or if staying for longer than 90 days you may need a visa. You can find out more here.

For your bike you will need to have EPA approval which is very easy to obtain, and when you are ready to book we will send you samples and help you complete the relevant forms.

Canada

Spring breathes new life into this vast wilderness. Time your travels to arrive in late spring or early summer and the chances are that you will be rewarded with sightings of much of the Canadian wildlife, including elk and bears. Mid-summer sees long warm days, ideal for biking. Wherever you are in Canada the scenery is fantastic.

Canada really does have something for everyone, and you can choose to enjoy the Rockies in the west or the flatter regions in the east.

Did you know that if we freight your bike into Vancouver and back from the East side you will have ridden more than half way back to the UK?

Alternatively from Canada you can you can cross into Alaska or south in the USA and with our freighting services you can choose to arrive in one place and leave from another.

USA

Whatever bike you ride, whetever your style, the USA can accommodate you!

From exciting gravel roads through the stunning Valley of the Gods to long interstates that get you comfortably across one side of the country to the other, it’s up to you which side of the USA you want to see. The options are endless, and it could take you years to explore even a small percentage of them.

Some great examples are:

Route 101 Motorcycle Adventure

The west coast’s breathtaking Coastal Highway takes you from sea lion watching in L.A. to giant Redwoods in the Valley of the Giants in the north. Your motorbike is guaranteed to enjoy this route as much as you are!

The Trans American Trail (TAT)

For those who prefer off-road motorcycling or trail riding this ever popular route is primarily gravel and covers the expanse from the East to the West, finishing in L.A.

The USA is host to many great biking and overland events such as the Overland Expo in Flagstaff, Daytona Beach bike rally in Florida and of course, Sturgis - the world’s biggest bike rally held annually in the Black Hills of Dakota.

From the USA (if you are on your own bike) you have the advantage of being able to cross into other countries such as Canada or Mexico, and from there you can even continue onwards and return home from somewhere even more exotic if you’d like to.

For the USA you will need ESTA approval which allows you to join the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), or if staying for longer than 90 days you may need a visa. You can find out more here.

For your bike you will need to have EPA approval which is very easy to obtain, and when you are ready to book we will send you samples and help you complete the relevant forms.

Australia

Australia has it all - the weather, the scenery and some of the friendliest people in the world. Whether you enjoy seemingly endless roads that continue over every horizon or coastal paths clinging to some of the best beaches in the world, there is something for everyone in Australia.

Travellers to Australia are required to organise a Carnet de Passage to keep with them during their adventures, so be sure to look into this before you intend to leave. We are happy to advise on carnets. Pre 89 vehciles don’t need a carnet.

We have regular containers to and from Australia which makes the freight very affordable. If you want to ride your own motorcycle in Australia we have frequent containers to and from most major cities in Australia so you don’t normally have to wait long.

For bikes up to the size of a large traile bike the current cost is GB £880 each way which includes all freight, handling and clearance at each end. It includes initial inspections in Australia but not secondary inspections and cleaning if the bike fails the first inspection.

Our colleagues in Australia are motorcyclists and travellers themselves and always happy to help.

New Zealand offers a mixed (but brilliant) bag of experiences to motorcyclists, and as a slightly off the beaten track destination it is proving popular with all types of bikers.

If you freight using our services to New Zealand from the UK and back again, we have in place a system wheer no carnet is required.
