Sierra to the Sea is a scenic and challenging 8-day
bicycle and camping tour through Northern California, June 18
to 25, 2005.
Starting in the historic Mother Lode country of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the tour traverses the Sacramento and Napa Valleys, passes down the Pacific Coast, crosses the Golden Gate Bridge and concludes at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.
The basic tour route is approximately 420 miles long and averages 60 miles
per day for each of seven cycling days. It is challenging and designed for
experienced riders. Some less strenuous route options are provided, as well
as options for riders who wish greater challenges.
Sierra to the Sea is organized by the Almaden
Cycle Touring Club of San Jose.
