RoadRUNNER Behind the Scenes: City Escapes

Still, we at RoadRUNNER believe that there are interesting roads to be found virtually anywhere. As touring motorcyclists we live for multi-day, extended jaunts in the saddle, exploring the wonders of whatever area we’re in. Unfortunately, life, jobs, family obligations, and more often prevent us from getting in as many tours in as we’d like. That’s why we invented the RoadRUNNER City Escapes. The City Escapes are one-day loops out of major metro areas across the U.S. and Canada that allow city dwellers to enjoy a fantastic motorcycle ride even if all they have is the day. Of course, like all other RoadRUNNER routes, the City Escapes are accompanied by a downloadable map and GPS file. And the best part is they’re free! No subscription required. Each route also includes a meet up point, recommended lunch stop, and a variety of interesting things to see and places to visit along the way. The City Escapes use a handy rating system for Scenery, Traffic, Difficulty, and Road Conditions so that riders know what to expect on their journey.

Each issue of RoadRUNNER Magazine features two to three City Escapes and you can also find them online here.
