Sierra to the Sea is a scenic and challenging 8-day California bicycle and camping tour, June 14-21, 2014. 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 27th anniversary tour. See Tour Overview and Where We Go or click on 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. 2014 features a brand new route from Ryde to Lake Solano that exchanges busy Highway 12 for some beautiful back roads through the Sacramento Delta and an afternoon exploration of Davis, CA, one of the most bike friendly cities in America.

For 2014, we will again offering a Lake Tahoe Prologue Option June 11-14, 2014. This option will be an pre-extension of the Sierra to the Sea tour making for a 10 day route. With this option you will begin in South Lake Tahoe and end in Bear Valley to join the regular Sierra to the Sea tour. You can also select to do only the 3 day option. See LTP Option Overview for more information.

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.
