Cross Country USA Bike Tour

The Bucket List Trip


Back by popular demand! We are excited to bring back our epic southern Cross Country USA trip for the first time since 2013 with some exciting new twists! On this ultimate bucket list trip, you’ll ride over 3,400 miles and climb more than 139,000 feet as you make your way from Santa Barbara to Myrtle Beach in 42 days with four rest days. That’s an average of 93 miles and over 3,700 feet of climbing per day. This adventure will take you from the Pacific Coast of California to the vast basins of the Mojave Desert, past the mystic spires of Monument Valley and the volcanic fields and high desert of New Mexico. Oklahoma will give you a chance to catch your breath before the terrain ramps up again as you enter Ozark country. From here, you’ll traverse the green rolling hills of the Great Smoky Mountains as you pedal through Tennessee and North Carolinas and then settle in for the big finish as you approach the Atlantic Ocean. Through the miles, you’ll take in a sunrise over the Grand Canyon, pedal portions of historic Route 66, feed wild burros in the historic town of Oatman, two-step the night away listening to Nashville’s best country music, and admire the views from Caesar’s Head before descending into quaint downtown Greenville. And these are just a few of the highlights you’ll encounter along the way. This ride is an extreme challenge and the ultimate experience for any avid cyclist. The reward is an accomplishment that only few can claim – and memories that will last a lifetime. Looking for a shorter version of this trip? Check out our Santa Barbara to Taos option.
