IBA Bike Week 2024 Party

The Iron Butt Association's most beloved event - The Annual Bike Week Party is Friday, March 8, 2024 in JACKSONVILLE, Florida, approximately 80 miles north of the Daytona race track. Check-in starting at noon with heavy duty socializing around the hotel. For those doing a theme ride or ride-in, the certificate presentation will be at 4 pm in the comedy club (a fitting venue for this insanity!).

Dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. As always, it will be a buffet style meal, and a cash bar will be available. We will have an hour long  presentation at 7:30 p.m. which is always fun, however the goal of the party is to get a chance to meet fellow long-distance riders, share stories and farkling tips (bring your cameras!), make new friends and get caught up with old ones.  What more could you ask for?

If you are able, join IBA Staff Wednesday evening March 6th and 7th for socializing or helping those going on rides or better yet, take advantage of being in Florida by doing some of the challenging Florida rides, including

Daytona Party

We have blocked every room in the hotel for those attending the party, at $90 per night Tuesday through Thursday and $129 on Friday night (JAX is heating up with events all over the area - rates are up that weekend) including a full cooked breakfast. The hotel does NOT charge for parking or Internet usage. Once your registration is complete, we will forward you the link to obtain the negotiated room rate available only to attendees. You may only make your reservation through the provided link - NOT through the corporate number or website - so please wait to receive the link if you want to be sure to get the special rate. The letter with the link and other info is not computer generated so it may take a day or two to receive it. Thanks for your patience.

Important: Because our event once again overlaps a large golf tournament, there are no overflow rooms available. If the main hotel is full, you must get your own reservation elsewhere. Even more reason to get on this immediately. There will be no waiting list; rooms made available because of cancelled reservations will be reflected in the hotel reservation link. Please do NOT call the hotel.

In the unlikely event this hasn't already sold out in January, everyone who wishes to attend must register BEFORE February 20, 2024. Remember: Space is limited!! Only Iron Butt Association (IBA) members, their guests or those doing a ride-in may attend the party. Space is limited and once we are out of room, well, we are out of room....

NO TICKETS AT THE DOOR: Once again we will NOT have tickets available at the door in Jacksonville and someone is always disappointed hoping to jump in last second to a sold out event. Don't travel hundreds or even thousands of miles hoping to snag a last minute seat - they do NOT exist. Please, if you want to attend the party, get a ticket now so you are not left out because if you just show up in Jacksonville there will NOT be a ticket for you. Word to the wise.

To reserve your entry to the party, register online and pay via PayPal (which will let you pay via Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express and of course, Paypal), the cost is $61.24 US per person. Please do NOT send cash or checks to the IBA as your registration will not be able to be confirmed. Please send an email to [email protected] with a note if the account name for PayPal is different from the name you use to register.

The registration web page can be found at:

All IBA members should already have an account - if you are having trouble finding that information, please try the forgot password link first, if that does work send an email to [email protected] and we will get it sorted out. Please do NOT open a second account - it will not work for any member items, like the party.

Party registration is under the JAX PARTY RIDE category on the left.


After you register, your confirmation letter, along with exact directions, the hotel room reservation link and contact information, will be emailed to you using the email address from your estore account.

Your dinner ticket(s) will be available for pick up in the hotel lobby on Friday starting at noon - nothing will be snail mailed to you.

*** IMPORTANT: Hotel letters are not computer generated. They will be sent out in groups, twice a day, based on when your PayPal payment is made. This event will sell out and people will be disappointed. It is your responsibility to make your reservations immediately upon receipt of the hotel letter. If you do not get the hotel letter within 48 hours of your Paypal payment, please send an email to [email protected]


No Ticket Transfers - This means YOU.

The refund deadline is February 20, 2024 - our deadline to turn in space and meal commitments to the hotel. After that there will not be any refunds. Due to logistical constraints, there are no ticket transfers. If you have an extra ticket to sell, you must pick it up in person to effect the transfer. Simply telling your friend that they can work it out with Dave or Donna is not a good plan. Please understand that your funds will go to support the party for those riders able to attend.

I look forward to seeing each of you again at my favorite party of the year!
