Route 66. Everybody has heard about it, even those who don’t know what it is. Route 66 is a road constructed during the 1920s in the USA. It was part of the US Highway System of the time and crossed most of the country, from Santa Monica to Chicago, crossing 8 different states (Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California). But is that all? No, not at all.
Route 66 is more than a simple road. It is Steinbeck’s Mother Road, along which so many destitute families of the Dust Bowl trod in search of the Californian Eldorado. It is Kerouac and his spiritual journey. It is Cadillac Ranch and the Bagdad Cafe that has never existed. It is a constant succession of diners, motels and gas stations. It is large extensions, straight roads, good weather and spectacular sights. It is, briefly, one of the most enduring US icons. Thus, even though the route became obsolete and was substituted by the new roads of the Interstate Highway System, it continues to exist thanks to its historical and symbolical importance. Although it is true that some of the original road is no longer drivable, route 66 is still alive and constitutes one of the last paradises for bikers longing for endless miles of road ahead.
