A brief history of Semana Internacional de la Moto Mazatlán

Motorcycle burn-out on the Malecon MazatlanThe history of International Mortocycle Week in Mazatlan dates back to 1985 when five Mazatlan motorcyclists decided to start Sunday morning motorcycle rides to nearby Sinaloa towns and destinations such as Concordia, Copala, La Noria and Playa el Caimanero. At that time, motorcycles could only be imported into Mexico with special permissions and documentation, and only a limited number of brands were allowed to be imported at all.

Mazatlan Moto Week Bikini ContestDesigned to protect the fledgeling Mexican motorcycle industry, these import restrictions were frustrating for Mexican motorcycle riders who wanted to aquire motorcycles that were more robust than Mexican manufacturers produced.

To the delight of motorcyclists throughout Mexico, import restrictions were lifted in 1987, causing an immediate increase in interest in motorcycles of all types and the sport of motorcycling throughout the country.

Mazatlan Moto Week Headline ConcertMoto Club Mazatlan A.C. was formed shortly after motorcycle import restrictions were lifted.

The club was, from its inception, broadly inclusive: all types of motorcycles and motorcyclists were warmly welcomed, and the central goal of the organization was to nurture interest in motorcycling in all its forms, and to encourage non-motorcyclists to consider the joys that the sport has to offer.

Semana Moto Mazatlan motorcycle paradeMembership in Moto Club Mazatlan A.C. grew rapidly, and more and longer motorcycle rides throughout Sinaloa State became the norm.

A founding member of the club, the late Ermes Escobar, proposed an annual motorcycle rally in Mazatlan, and in 1995 his dream came true with the first inaugural Mazatlan Bike Week -- which was a huge success.

By 2001 the scale of the rally had grown enormously -- motorcyclist were coming to Mazatlan from many countries, including countries in Europe and Asia.

Motorcyclist partying in MazatlanMotoclub Mazatlan chose to change the name of the event to Semana Internacional de la Moto and to fix the date as the week following Easter Sunday.

The modern International Motorcycle Week in Mazatlan is known to motorcyclists throughout the world, and draws tens of thousands of them to our port every year. These motorcycle enthusiasts provide enormous benefits to our economy and tremendous entertainment for Mazatlecos, ex-pat residents and tourists of all ages!

The newest, coolest, motorcycle route in Mexico: Mazatlán - Durango - Mazatlán!

Of particular interest to 2019 Moto Week attendees is the new Mazatlan - Durango segment of Mexico Federal Highway 40D.

Baluarte Bridge on Mexico Federal Highway 40DWhile some adventurous motorcyclists traversed the old Highway 40 from Mazatlan to Durango, it was a true feat of endurance: 180 miles of grueling switchback turns that took as much as eight hours to ride.

It was also a very dangerous road for a number of reasons, not the least of which was the oversized trucks that motorcycles shared the road with -- trucks that simply didn't fit within the two rather narrow lanes.

The new Highway 40D has cut the distance to Durango to 140 miles and the ride time to under three hours.

This remarkable engineering feat was accomplished by blasting a new route through some of the most rugged parts of the Sierra Madre mountains!

This new highway provides motorcyclists spectacular views from a safe four-lane divided road, and you get to ride through 63 tunnels and over 115 bridges, including the 3,600 foot long Baluarte Bridge that is 1,300 feet above the Baluarte River -- the highest suspension bridge in the world!

Motorcyclists from Texas and other parts of the south-central United States particularly benefit from the new Mexico Federal Highway 40D.

It's a long ride, but McAllen, Texas, to Mazatlan can now be ridden in roughly 13 - 14 hours!

Even if you want to be in Mazatlan for every minute of Moto Week, it might be worth considering coming down a day or two early -- or staying a day or two after -- to experience the Mazatlan - Durango portion of Highway 40D.

You can even ride the round trip in one day!
