Cannonball Bike Run 2021 |


The 2021 Cannonball Bike Run (CBR), returns to the sunshine of southern Europe this September. The 17th annual CBR will focus on fabulous Italy with an all-new 3000-kilometre route bringing you the very best riding that this stunning country can offer.

Highlights will be the mountain peaks of the Stelvio Pass, the Dolomites and the Carnic Alps; the sweeping and rolling countryside of Tuscany; the Mediterranean coast; the Italian Lakes and so much more.

Historic cities and spectacular scenery plus great hotels and wonderful food – it’s all included in one incredible week.

Apart from the appeal of Italy, the 2021 CBR goes much further. This region of Europe offers such perfect riding that you can also expect the experience to extend beyond Italy to take in an extra country (or three…).

The 17th CBR will start in the high mountain resort of Bormio, Italy on Sunday September 5th 2021 and end a week later in the glitzy French Riviera town of Nice on September 12th.

The Cannonball is renowned for always pushing the boundaries but of course some things will not change – the famous blend of fabulous roads from mountain to shining sea and at the end of a hard day’s riding you can expect classic countryside hotels and uber modern city residences – all with secure parking.

The actual route is kept secret until the event but we understand that CBR is all about the riding and the routes will be hand-picked and pre-ridden so you can expect the best riding you have ever experienced.

And riding in the first week of September means the weather will be good, sunny, warm and the roads quieter as the peak summer season has passed. You will get to enjoy the roads without all the traffic of July and August.

If you want to join what is sure to be the ultimate European motorcycle adventure of 2021 then you will be in great company. Regular riders come from all over Europe and even the USA to take part and bikes range from KTMs and BMWs to MV Augustas and Ducatis; from 600 to 1200cc and from adventure bikes to sports bikes.

It goes without saying that CBR 2021 will include all the traditional Cannonball features: back-up support & luggage van, dinners every night, breakfast each morning, final party night, trophies, goodies, photos etc.
