Speaking of group rides, 2014 marked the first Cycle World Tour on Saturday, starting at the Quail Lodge Clubhouse in the morning and returning to the show field in time for lunch. Limited to 50 riders, it proved to be an exact cross-section of Cycle World's readership, with bikes from a 1973 Kawasaki Mach III to a new Triumph Tiger 800 ridden by 10-time sports-car racing champion Randy Pobst. The Laguna Seca lap-record holder wasn't the only champ in attendance. On the car side, 1985 Indy 500 winner and former F1 driver Danny Sullivan arrived on his Mert Lawwill-built Street Tracker. And motorcycle racing was well represented by Doug Polen, Wayne Rainey, and Eddie Lawson, the trio holding nine world championships among them, and Rocky Robinson, the current motorcycle land-speed record holder at 376 mph.
