Registration need to know Information

Sierra to the Sea is a scenic and challenging bicycle and camping Tour starting in Coloma in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and ending in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. The Tour is fully supported with SAG vehicles, rest stops and trucks to carry your camping gear. You will bicycle some 420 miles of mountain, valley and coastal roads that are best suited to strong and experienced cyclists. Please see the Tour Info webpage for other important details regarding the Tour.

Sierra to the Sea Tour is limited to 130 riders, who will be registered on a first come, first served basis using Sierra to the Sea's online registration.

Once we receive and review your Registration Questionnaire and payment, if you agree to have your name shown, you will appear on the list of the currently registered riders. If you are on the Standby list you will be so notified. If payment is not mailed within 7 days of submitting your registration, you may lose your reservation.  Your registration is not transferable, and there is a cancellation fee of at least $150 should you need to withdraw from the Tour after your registration has been confirmed (see the Cancellation Policy).  There is no cancellation charge if you are on our Standby list and then decline our invitation to join the tour (though we would certainly appreciate hearing from you if you no longer wish to remain on the Standby list).

Since our registration takes place nearly five months in advance of the Tour, it is likely that we will receive cancellations from previously confirmed riders. To fill these openings, we maintain a Standby Rider List, and would be pleased to add you to the list. No payment of Tour fees will be required until you are notified of an opening, and elect to join the Tour.

Sierra to the Sea Tour price is $1,500 per person.  This includes all camping fees, six dinners, six breakfasts and lunch in Golden Gate Park.

All Tour guests will also receive a commemorative Sierra to the Sea water bottle.
