Harley’s planning for its big anniversary shindig in its hometown this summer continues with The Motor Company’s new release of six ride options to the festival, each one commencing from various parts of the US. We already got the inside details about the Harley-Davidson Homecoming, which will take place in Milwaukee this July, and now we’re being supplied with a half-dozen different ways to get there, thanks to H-D’s latest announcement.
The company’s momentous birthday is set to culminate around the shores of Lake Michigan, where thousands of motorcyclists plan to converge on July 13–16 for the Harley-Davidson Homecoming Festival, a celebration of the 120th anniversary of the storied motorcycle brand featuring four days of music, food, and moto-culture.

From there it continues traversing the Southwest via Albuquerque and Santa Fe, cruising through the Texas Panhandle, the plains of Oklahoma, and the Ozarks before crossing the finish line in Milwaukee.
Riders can join at any point along the route, and are free to leave any time if they want to ride at their own pace. They’re also responsible for their own lodging, fuel, and food stops, but joining the ride itself is free.
There are two Canadian routes as well; the Canada East Route rolls out of Privateers Harley-Davidson on the North Atlantic shore in Halifax, Nova Scotia, heading toward New Brunswick, and then through Grande Allée Québec’s historic restaurant-lined main street. The next segment shadows the St. Lawrence River and rumbles through Ontario and along three Great Lakes before arriving in Milwaukee.
H-D is calling them “Ride-In Routes,” and each of the official segments will begin and end at a Harley-Davidson dealership. Midday stops are also planned at dealerships, so riders can take a coffee break, chew the fat with other riders and local staff, and chow down at on-site food trucks while getting bikes sorted.
