The Southern Tier has become one of our most popular tours, and it’s easy to see why. This route is 1,200 miles shorter than either the Northern Tier or TransAm and yet offers epic quantities of amazing scenery and shoulder-season sunshine.

After ceremonially dipping your bicycle wheels in the Pacific, we’ll climb eastward, riding through southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico. Next up: Texas, where you’ll parallel the Rio Grande River before hitting the bucolic Texas Hill Country, Lance Armstrong’s training ground. From there it’s on to Louisiana and the spicy heart of Cajun Country. Finally, you’ll pedal along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and Alabama, cross Florida’s panhandle, and ride to adventure’s end at St. Augustine. We’ll experience a parade of cultures and the delicious cuisines associated with each: from enchiladas to Texas barbecue; alligator po’ boys to Southern grits. As one past participant put it, “This trip lends new meaning to the phrase ‘eating up the miles.’ ”
