The US Highway 1 ride is 650 miles length and steeped in American history and iconism but many tourists only scratch the surface of this sublime journey. There is adventure and luxury to experience in equal measures and the only way to feel the true sense of freedom and escapism is to ride it not drive it. If there is one route that delivers riding the American dream in one easy week, is US Highway 1.
The 1500 mile journey of extremes takes in the Joshua Tree National Park, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Route 66 and the glorious mountain ride through Sedona to journey's end just south of Phoenix Arizona. This once in a lifetime ride into this barren yet unendingly beautiful landscape will etch itself permanently on your soul.
In this the first leg of his ride Henry reflects on the culture and history of Boston before heading off down US 1 into New York, a ride not for the faint hearted.

Henry sets off from Key West in Florida to ride some 1500 miles of America's rarely seen Deep South to journey's end in New Orleans aboard his one off American Chop - the modern day version of Dennis Hopper's Harley in the iconic movie `Easy Rider'. The route heads north from Key West hugging the West Coast of Florida strictly off the tourist map up through hicksville one horse towns into Alabama.
