The mother route

Central Route Hub

Welcome to the Central Route

The Central Route, AKA “The Mother Route” is the original route taken by James “Gunny” Gregory and the very first RFTW riders back in 1989. Although some of the stops and a few changes to the route have been made over the years, the basic route including the stop at Rainelle Elementary School in West Virginia remains the same.

For 2024 the Central Route will feature a GPS tracking device that is fixed to our Medical Team Lead, Kelly “KC” Withers’ motorcycle. The GPS service has been provided by US Fleet Tracking. Below is a link where you can follow the 2024 RFTW Central Route in real time.
