We start the tour riding a new route with a 75 mile day to the tourist town of Julian, CA. in the Vulcan Mountains. Our next three days cross the desert are planned with 65-110 miles distances that include plenty of ice and support.
The days climbing the mountains of Arizona offer some of the best scenery and challenging riding of the tour. The climbs up Yarnell Hill and Mingus Mountain are both memorable accomplishments. We will include plenty of local history across New Mexico and riding on old sections of Route 66 in Texas and Oklahoma.
We stay at several upscale resort hotels including the La Posada Harvey House in Williams, AZ and the Talimena Lodge in Arkansas. Each day offers new and different terrain as we cross the country. This tour is a good highlight for your cycling season while riding from Coast to Coast.
