Prepare for a southern-style, cross-country ride on our shortest, most accessible transcontinental trip. To make this tour even better, we’ll enjoy the relative luxury of having the Adventure Cycling van tote our gear to and from each overnight location, as we pedal from the West Coast across deserts, over mountains, past prairies, beyond bayous, and through citrus groves, all the way to our eastern shore. You’ll also enjoy starting this epic tour in one of America’s best beach cities, San Diego, and ending it in St. Augustine, America’s oldest continuously occupied city settled by Europeans.
Notable stopovers along this route, each with a unique set of diversions, include Phoenix, Austin, and New Orleans. In between there are many other great sights, sounds, cuisines, and cultures to experience.
