Enjoy the relaxing pace of tour life as you ride from the Southwestern U.S. to the Heartland of America where old-fashion diners and homesteads allow you to experience the gracious hospitality of the Midwest.
Each day will bring a new adventure and spectacular scenery as we cross the mountains in New Mexico, and the prairies in Kansas on our way to the Yellow Brick Road, the Lewis and Clark Trail, and the Mighty Mississippi. Our route meanders past small town cafes on Historic Rt. 66 where freshly baked pastries and stories of the Mother Road will tempt you to linger and enjoy the relaxed pace of touring. This route is the ideal setting for a bicycle tour as we rediscover the beauty of the United States and celebrate the spirit of hometown America.
*Our Middle America tour is the second leg of our Cross Country tour from Los Angeles to Boston. If you would like to join us at any other point along our route see Choose a Segment or call for details.

Theodore Roosevelt said it best, “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat”!
