We have chosen the Southern Tier of the US from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL. Why this route?....  This is the shortest route from coast to coast at 2891 miles, yet you'll still have bragging rights of cycling across the country. The timing will be perfect for those who are sick of the winter weather. As we progress west to east, we should have the best, consistent temperatures ranging from the high 60s to perhaps the 80s, perfect cycling conditions. While we won't guarantee freshly paved bike trail for the entire route, we will boast that we have sought the most accommodating routes available in the area and you will enjoy scenery to include; sea shores, mountains, ranchlands, wildflowers, bayous and citrus groves.

This southern route takes us through wonderfully warm towns in southern California. We climb out of San Diego and head toward the Arizona border, Tucson, Tombstone, and the Chiricahua Mountains before taking on our 3rd state, New Mexico- "State of Enchantment". Then on to Texas where we will ride 1/3 of our tour crossing Texas at its widest part. We enjoy the flat ranches of western Texas, the blooming Blue Bonnets in the Texas Hill Country, just outside of Austin, and on to the rolling hills of east Texas. From there it's a few days of riding across Louisiana- Time to enjoy some Cajun cooking. We cross the boot heels of both Mississippi and Alabama, then take a ferry across Mobile Bay to enter Florida's panhandle. North Florida has a varied landscape of strawberry fields, lush Live Oaks, horse farms, small college towns and orange groves as we move toward the coast. If you are curious, try connecting the dots....
