As happens this time every year, thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts are about to arrive in Florida for Bike Week, and that means services at one major truck stop will be disrupted.
The Daytona Beach/Ormond Beach, Florida area hosts Bike Week March 5-14. Daytona Harley Davidson, which is located next door to the Love’s Travel Stop in Ormond Beach, is a major participant in the event. That causes unusually high traffic in and around the area, so during this time, Love’s says it can only allow trucks to fuel-and-go during the day.
Long-term parking won’t be available during the day at this location throughout Bike Week. A statement from Love's said about 15 parking spots will be available for drivers to park overnight, but they must be gone by 7 a.m. In past years, the increased traffic volumes for professional drivers waiting to fuel –- combined with the significant influx of cars, trucks, and motorcycles –- caused severe traffic jams, forcing state police to close the exit.
Love’s said it wants to provide necessary fueling for professional drivers, but to ensure that occurs, drivers will need to continue moving in and out of the lot during the day.
