Yorktown, VA to San Francisco, CA
This classic ride offers everything you'd expect from a transcontinental crossing. You'll encounter all kinds of scenery and terrain, including lush forest, desert, high mountain passes, snowy peaks, expansive plains, farmlands, rolling hills, and winding rivers. Out of the gate, the TransAm challenges cyclists through Virginia, which boasts more total elevation gain than any other state. The rolling farmlands of Appalachia begin to flatten as you enter the Midwest and are greeted by the seemingly endless horizon of Kansas. Before long, you've crossed into Colorado and the Rocky Mountains are looming in the distance. As you wind through Colorado and Utah prepare to be amazed by the scenery. Nevada presents a unique landscape as you travel along the "Loneliest Road in America". Eventually you emerge back into civilization and it's a short ride across California to the finish line in San Francisco!
Can I ride a segment?
Yes! You can ride any distance that works for you.

What kind of experience do I need?
We welcome riders of all skill levels! Prior to arriving to orientation we require that you ride at least 500 miles on the bike you are planning to ride across the country, and two back to back days of at least 60 miles. This will help you become familiar with your bike and will make the first couple of weeks more enjoyable.
