Default Sea to Shining Sea Support

Are you interested in a limited support coast to coast bicycle ride?
Then join me and my group, we will help you have a dream vacation.
I知 setting off on a coast to coast bicycling journey this coming
summer. The plan is to include RAGBRAI in our trip. I知 riding with
two friends from the San Francisco Bay area to Yorktown, Virginia
following Adventure Cycling Association (ACA) maps. The Western
Express route to mid Kansas, up to RAGBRAI, then back down to the
Transamerica map. We are between 45 and 54-years of age, two men, one
woman. We also have one set of retired parents driving a support van
for us. We are not partiers but do have an occasional alcoholic
beverage. We feel we are fun loving people. We池e planning our
departure date to be July 2nd.

We will dip our rear wheels in the Pacific Ocean, probably Santa Cruz
or near San Gregorio, CA. We値l dip our front wheels in the
Atlantic. We would like to have at least a dozen riders in our group,
including us, to help defray the cost of our drivers, support vehicle,
and fuel. I知 thinking the cost will be around $800 apiece. We have
recreational/race type bikes so we do not want to carry anything on
them.

We expect to take around 37 to 39 days in total so it means we値l be
on the move for an average 130 plus miles per day. We do expect we値l
take one day off per week for rest and laundry, or sightseeing,
probably every seven or eight days. I expect most of us will fly home
so we will pre-arrange our flights and plan the trip accordingly.

All food will be on your own; however there should be room in the van
for small coolers and a Coleman stove. Of course room for duffle bags
and camp chairs too. The ACA maps have details needed to find food
and services along the way.

The following links well get you to the maps we'll be using so you can
get a general idea of the route
