Itinerary

The Across America North tour will cycle through some of the most beautiful and scenic areas in America. The Across America North ride is a scenic and challenging fully supported 50 day bicycle tour from Astoria, Oregon to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This great adventure will average 80 miles per day for 3,629 miles and have five interesting and diverse rest days along the way.

The Across America North tour will depart the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Astoria, Oregon. From the mouth of the Columbia River we’ll meander along the river to Portland. You’ll see many of the small communities along the way. Continuing from Portland we head southeast and begin to climb up through the cascades. Mount Hood is getting bigger and bigger as we approach and ultimately cycle past the great peak and continue the trek into eastern Oregon. After a few mountainous days the route will settle down and cross into Idaho. Here we’ll take our first off day in Boise.

Our route through Idaho will stay mostly in the Snake River Valley and the Snake River Plain. We pass through small and large western towns and many Indian reservations. The views and vistas are remarkable as we cross over the Snake River many times. The mountainous climbing begins again once we pass our last oasis in Idaho, the lush Idaho Falls and begin to head up into the Grand Teton's. We pass the backside of Yellowstone National Park and marvel at the jagged peaks of Mount Hancock. Then we’ll climb over Togwotee Pass (9,658’), cross the Continental Divide and get a nice ride down into the quaint western town of Dubois. We should get a nice ride into Casper, Wyoming for our second off day.

After a rest, you’ll be rejuvenated and ready to continue the high plains drift through small western towns and cross the border into South Dakota. We’ll cycle up into the Black Hills and through Custer State Park and up to Mount Rushmore. We’ll have a great ride out of the mountains to our overnight refuge of Rapid City. We will continue the journey, descending still, onto the high plains of South Dakota, skirting the Badlands and roll into Wall. Next we’ll stretch out our legs again for a long ride to Pierre, the capital of South Dakota. From Pierre we’ll pick up the Missouri River and tag along for awhile. Soon we’ll kick out back on the flat South Dakota prairie and spin into Sioux Falls for our third off day.

From South Dakota we’ll cross into southern Minnesota and ride the sometimes rolling landscape northeast to the Minnesota River. Then due east crossing the Mississippi River into La Crosse, Wisconsin. We’ll pass by real small town America. The route will take us past the tourist mecca and Wisconsin riverside town of Wisconsin Dells. We’ll continue the roll to Fond du Lac, just south of Lake Winnebago, and make the final rolling push to Manitowoc on the shores of Lake Michigan. Here we’ll take the fourth off day of the tour.

We’ll board the SS Badger for a relaxing four hour cruise across Lake Michigan that will land us in the Michigan town of Ludington. We take a straight shot across this very flat farming region. Ending up in Port Huron, we hop the Bluewater Bridge and cross into Ontario, Canada. We will continue to cycle very flat rural Canadian farmland and head over to London, Ontario. We cross the Rainbow Bridge over Niagara Falls, and cycle back into the United States. You will have plenty of time to explore the falls as we will take our fifth and final off day in Niagara Falls, New York.

Our final leg will take us across upper New York State through the rolling farm country past Rochester. Then we’ll following the Erie Canal through Liverpool to Utica and finally past the state capital to Latham. The final few days will take us across the Appalachian mountain range to Vermont and into Brattleboro. Next, we’ll ride the roller coaster road across the border into New Hampshire. The final day we’ll roll right down to the ocean on the New Hampshire seacoast.
