Registration for the 2023 Scooter Cannonball has opened!

The 2023 Cannonball is similar to previous years in format. Each day is divided into four segments defined/gated by 'mandatory' checkpoints. In addition, there are optional bonus locations that the rider can photograph for additional points. For 2023 the overall winner will be determined using a handicap-adjusted score (same formula as always). However, scooters will be grouped into classes and scored comparatively based on their "raw time" performance.

All two or three-wheeled, street-legal bikes with a displacement under 125cc can register for the event. If the entrant bike does not meet the events definition of a scooter, it will not be included in the overall scooter scoring but will be scored among their peers in a separate class by raw time. This allowance accommodates several of the new Honda variants in the marketplace.

Unlike 2021, the 2023 route has limited unpaved sections. Three in total across three days of riding for 32 miles. All checkpoints and bonus locations can be reached via paved surfaces.

A reception/party at the finish line will be held on Sunday, June 25th, in Hilton Head following the event's conclusion. Please email ride@scootercannonball.com if you are interested in attending this event.

Registration has been capped at 250 registrants, and that threshold has been passed. As of now, folks can get "waitlisted" and as others drop out, that spot will be opened up.

Keep in mind, while 250 riders have registered, typical turnout in the past has been about 60% of total registrants.

Nope, that is correct, "under." For 2023, smaller displacement bikes that do not meet the event's traditional "3 of 5" criteria to define a scooter are permitted to register and participate. However, these entrants will be scored among their peers and excluded from the overall handicap-adjusted scooter competition.

Yep, as of 10/23/2022, we have three open slots due to dropouts.
