A little bit about the Southern Tier Route

During this journey across the United States, I will cross the following 8 states:

  1. California (~270 mi.)
  2. Arizona (~467 mi.)
  3. New Mexico (~273 mi.)
  4. Texas (~970 mi.)
  5. Louisiana (~352 mi.)
  6. Mississippi (~155 mi.)
  7. Alabama (~95 mi.)
  8. Florida (~460 mi.)

The Southern Tier Bicycle Route provided by Adventure Cyclist Association “offers a wide variety of terrain, vegetation, climate, and people all the way across the nation from the Pacific to the Atlantic. The route is rich in human culture and history — ranging from the Spanish and Mexican influences in California, to the ancient indigenous pueblo cultures in Arizona and New Mexico, to the imprint of the Spanish conquistadors in Texas, to the bayous and French influences of Louisiana, to the Old South of Mississippi and Alabama, to a four-hundred-year-old city in Florida.
