June 6 to July 28 1998

See the breathtaking beauty of the United States as you cycle coast to coast on the Cross Country Challenge. You will depart the famous "City by the Bay," San Francisco and dip your rear wheel in the Pacific Ocean at Golden Gate State Beach. California passes quickly as you cycle over the Sierras and coast into Reno, Nevada. Then you'll cycle through the vast desert beauty of the "Nevada Bad Lands" and on to Salt Lake City, Utah. From the majestic beauty of southern Utah you'll cycle into Colorado and cross the Rockies. The plain states come quickly as you watch the country pass before your eyes and you arrive at the half way point, Abilene, Kansas.

Next you'll conquer the great Missouri and the Mississippi rivers and the east is at hand. Then experience the green, lush farmland of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. You'll continue on through the beauty of New York State and over the Berkshires to Massachusetts. The Merrimack Valley calls as you cut across southern New England to Maine and touch the Atlantic Ocean.

Along the route you'll see such sights as the Olde Town Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Temple Square, Old Dodge City, Eisenhower Center, Lincoln's Home, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Lake Erie just to name a few. Join us on an adventure this summer with...
