Cross Country Bike Tour – Sea to Shining Sea
Tour across the USA
Newport Beach, CA to Pleasure Bay Beach, Boston, MA
Approximately 3500 miles
43 riding days/5 rest days/49 nights
Leaving from the beautiful beach town of Newport Beach, CA, with a quick stop at Huntington Beach for pictures, the tour heads East towards Pleasure Bay Beach in Boston, MA. As you settle into a first day pace filled with excitement on one of America’s Class 1 bike trails, the Santa Ana River Trail, the newness jitters of tour are worked out and the how-to’s of tour are answered. As each day passes you become stronger as an endurance rider. Through the desert of California and the high-desert of Arizona, across the Continental Divide and into New Mexico, leaving Arizona a distant memory, the tour pedals on ticking off an average 79 miles per day.
Pedaling eastward through Texas and Oklahoma, the landscape becomes green with life in Kansas where the growing season is well underway. Onward through Missouri, crossing the mighty Mississippi River into Illinois after a well earned fourth (of five) rest day in Hannibal, MO. With five states to go, plans are made by groups of riders to visit Niagara Falls on the next rest day in Erie, Pennsylvania, after passing through the beautiful landscapes of Ohio. Just you and your bike, free to ride through the day!
New York State is next on the agenda before finishing up your sea-to-sea adventure-by-bike across America. From Albany, NY, the tour continues East as it heads directly across Massachusetts through Northampton, to Auburn, and down the Charles River Bike Path to Pleasure Bay Beach in Boston.
The BIG DREAM begins on the edge of the sea, travels east beginning on an amazing bike path, and ends forty nine days later at the sea, after a wonderful morning spent riding on another beautiful bike path. In between, forty-three riding days, five rest days, and memories held only by those who dare to DREAM BIG.
