Fast America South - Central begins with a climb over Glorieta Summit and roll down to Las Vegas, New Mexico.

The western desert slowly gives way to the high plains as we spin eastward to Texas. Up until this point, both of America by Bicycle’s fast rides follow the same route. It is in Dalhart, TX that Fast America South continues across the vast, gently rolling Texas Panhandle through Dumas, Texas, the site of the largest natural gas facility in the world. You'll ride along the immense Texas rangeland and sense what it must have been like to have breakfast from the back of a chuck wagon as you pass vistas where thousands of cowhands drove herds along the Chisholm Trail to railheads for shipments to eastern markets. Our next state is Oklahoma, once described by Will Rogers as, "The heart of America's existence."  The first stop will be Elk City, once a rest stop for cattlemen driving herds along the great western trail to Kansas. Like those cowhands, you will also spend long hours in the saddle to Chickasha and McAlester during two long days that aren’t flat by any means. In Oklahoma, the state that has more horses per person than any other state, rangeland will give way to farmland as you cross the Main Street of America, Route 66. Farmland will turn to beautiful mountain ranges as you enter eastern Oklahoma for your second well-deserved day off in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
