     The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge kicked off Sunday, July 20, in Key West, Florida. It’s an estimated 7,500-mile journey from the tip of Florida to the end of the Homer Spit.

     It doesn’t run the same route each year and it last came to the Kenai Peninsula in 2010. This year, there are three checkpoints along the route in Oklahoma, Montana, and British Columbia.

     Four years ago, the challenge was clouded by multiple deaths of participating riders and injuries to bystanders and cyclists.

     Riders are expected to arrive in Homer in early August.
