Sierra to the Sea is a scenic and challenging 7-day California bicycle and camping tour. We still have 15+ open slots we would like to fill!
We ride again this year from Lake Tahoe, cross the Sierra Nevada, then traverse the Sacramento, Napa and Russian River Valleys, to the Pacific Coast. The tour finishes with a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and a picnic in Golden Gate Park. This is the 32nd anniversary of our tour, and we are excited about our new Lake Tahoe start and the revised route.
The tour route is approximately 420 miles long and averages 60 miles per day It is challenging and designed for experienced bicycle riders. Some less strenuous route options are provided, as well as options for riders who wish greater challenges. We limit the ride to 125 riders, so you get to meet and ride with new friends and many return riders who enjoy the scenic ride and challenge.
During each leg of the trip, we offer SAG support should you have a mechanical or need a lift back to home base. Our route takes us through many towns with ample opportunities to buy lunch at restaurants, delicatessens, and grocery stores. Dinner is catered each evening and breakfast is provided at each camping area (except Calistoga). Camping areas all have hot showers and bathrooms.
The tour starts right in downtown San Jose and ends 420 miles later in San Francisco, CA.
Sierra to the Sea is organized by the Almaden Cycle Touring Club of San Jose, one of the oldest bike clubs in the San Jose area. We are a not-for-profit organization whose Tierra Bella Century has, for over thirty years, been one of the most respected and successful rides of its kind in California.
