2013 Sea to Sea

The last trans-continental Sea to Sea tour was held in 2013. Our next transcontinental tour will be in 2017, until then Sea to Sea will conduct shorter tours to continue it's mission - Cycling to End Poverty. The 2013 tour began  June 21, 2013 on the shores of the Pacific at Huntington Beach in Los Angeles. We were hosted by Vanguard Univeristy who graciously supported the tour.  Nine weeks later the cyclists crossed into New York City and rode the Staten Island Ferry to Staten Island dipping their front tires into the Atlantic Ocean. Cyclists traveled 3,900 miles through the Unites States and Canada with stops in Payson, Zuni, Rehoboth, Shiprock, Colorado Springs, Pella, Iowa City, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Sarnia, Ancaster,Toronto, Kingston, Montreal and Albany. During the course of the tour Sea to Sea was hosted by the Indian Nations of the the Navajo, Zuni and Mohawk. As always, we recieved our warmest welcome in Canada. No one can compare to their hospitality and warm support of the tour.
