On March 13, Daytona Beach Mayor announced that the city had revoked Bike Week permits.
While the traffic and activity slowed in the Black community, thousands of motorcyclists were seen hanging out on Main Street on Saturday.
Some vendors in Midtown were upset about the city’s decision and kept selling their items after the city’s deadline. A visit to the Main Street area showed that Bike Week in that area of the city appeared to be still going strong.
This year’s Bike Week – March 6-15 – was also one of the deadliest with five fatalities over the course of the event. The deaths included a 60-year-old motorcyclist on March 13, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
An accident on March 12 killed a 70-year-old biker and another on March 10 killed three motorcyclists and injured another.
