Sierra to the Sea Bicycle Tour


Sierra to the Sea 2022 is a GO!

Our team is now planning routes and camping locations for our 2022 tour.

Save the dates - June 18 thru 25 2022.

Routes and locations listed here were the plan for 2020. 2022 routes and locations will be similar to 2020. They will be posted here when finalized.

Thank you for being patient while we all dealt with the pandemic.

Sierra to the Sea is a scenic and challenging 8-day California bicycle and camping tour. We ride again this year from Lake Tahoe, cross the Sierra Nevada, then traverse the Sacramento, Route Thumbnail 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 33rd anniversary of our tour, and we are excited about our new Lake Tahoe start and the revised route. See Where We Go.

The tour route is approximately 420 miles long and averages 60 miles per day Climb Thumbnail 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.

Members of the Lehigh Wheelmen recorded Relive videos of their 2018 ride. See one here: Day 7 Olema to San Francisco
