Sierra to the Sea is a scenic and challenging
8-day California bicycle and camping tour, June 18-25, 2016. Starting in the
Sierra Nevada Mountains, the bike 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. This is our 29th anniversary tour. See Tour Overview and Where We Go or click one of the tabs above to see photos and video of past tours.
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, 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.
