Itinerary

This tour offers 45 days of hassle-free riding with 7 non-riding days while crossing eight different states. If you wish to explore this country, meet locals, visit local attractions, see, smell feel and taste this country like you can do only from the seat of a bicycle all while being pampered, this is the trip. You will be bicycling mostly on very lightly traveled back roads.

After dipping your rear wheel into the Pacific Ocean, you will start heading east up and over the coastal California mountains into the deserts of Arizona.
Crossing into the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico, you will be riding surrounded the beauty of the Chiricahua and Pelencillo Mountains. The wide-open spaces of Western Texas and the beautiful wild-flowers of the Texas Hill Country are sights you will never forget.
The route flattens out as you head into Cajun Country, an area known for its great music and wonderful food. You will take a ferry across the Mississippi River, one of only two sections of the entire route you can make progress without pedaling. You will spend two days in Mississippi before hitting the white sand beaches of Alabama.
A ferry ride across the Mobile Bay will take you into Florida. Finally, into Florida we head to the oldest city in the country, St. Augustine, where a front wheel dipping celebration awaits you.

This Event is fully supported, including support vehicles and bike mechanic. All camping gear is provided and the Ride does all the work associated with camping as well. Your top quality tent will be set-up and taken down daily by the staff and your baggage will be delivered to your tent. You sleep on a nice thick air mattress.
This is primarily a camping tour, however, there will be 32 tent nights and 20 non-tent nights along the way as well (motels, hotels or inside a building on air mattresses in one big room). All fees associated with over-night lodging is included. Fresh towels and wash cloths daily.
Cold drinks and snacks can be enjoyed under the canopies while sitting on deluxe camp chairs. All breakfasts and dinners are provided and will be a combination of eating out allowing you the chance to experience local flavor as well as freshly prepared meals in camp.
