Description

Have you ever dreamed of taking a cycling trip across the USA!  Experiencing this beautiful country of ours as you pedal by day and sleep under the stars by night.  But let's face it...who has that much time off and who really wants to spend that many nights sleeping on the ground!

Well...here is your chance!  Your journey across America will begin on Memorial Day and end on Labor Day.  You can ride anywhere you would like and sleep in your own bed..unless you want to camp in your backyard!  Just log your miles and we will track your progress across America.  

 The route follows I-40 and  begins at Wilmington, NC and ends at Barstow, CA.  2500 miles of cycling fun.  Set your own pace and your own goal. 

Pick your goal: 

Wilmington, NC - Nashville, TN (625 miles)

Wilmington, NC - Oklahoma City, OK (1250 miles)

Wilmington, NC - Albuquerque, NC (1750 miles) 

Wilmington, NC - Barstow, CA (2500 miles)

 

Here is how it works: 

1. Register and invite your friends to join you 

  • If you like to ride with friends, form a convoy (group). We'll be serving up some sweet swag for the largest convoy. Each member of the group is responsible for their own miles. You can't share miles, but you can definitely share the experience.

2. Bike anytime/anywhere and log your miles.  (We will send you more details before we roll out on Memorial day) 

3. Join the virtual community of fellow riders through our Strava group and our private Facebook group. 

 

All participants receive: 

*Race Shirt 

*Virtual Race Bib

*Map tracking, and leaderboard

*Finish Line photos..your friends will never know you are in Kansas and not California!

*Being a part of our virtual biking community - private Facebook and Strava group where encouragement and smack talking are encouraged!

*Motivation - Hey let's face it - that bike trainer sitting in the corner is kinda lonely!   We will be sending you motivation and encouragement throughout the journey!

*A virtual vacation!  Feel like you are in traveling across the US with fun facts, photos and local information coming your way. 

*Finisher Medals for reaching your goal. 

 

 

 

FULL SEND

FULL SEND:   Being 100% Committed.  No Take Backs.  NO Do Overs. No Second Chances.  Full Speed Ahead.  All In.  

The Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge is a race like non other.  You know your toughest competitor - the person who stares back at you in the mirror.  You know your weaknesses.  You know your strengths.  You know what gets you out of bed in the morning.  Here is your chance to focus one mile at a time on becoming a better version of yourself. 

Between our three virtual events we are 1300 athletes strong representing 45 states and 6 countries. As a group you have raised over $18,000 which will be divided between food banks in some of our nations most food insecure areas. Each of you comes to the starting line with different abilities, different experiences and different goals.  For some of you - your goal is to be the first person to ride the 2500 miles from Wilmington, NC to Barstow, CA.  For some of you your goal is to use this season to ride gravel and do some mountain biking and so your goal is to get to Oklahoma City covered in mud.   For others of you your goal is to ride 5 miles every day with your children and finish in Nashville with a bike basket full of flowers, rocks and treasures. 

Whatever your goal we want you to go FULL SEND!  Be fully committed.  We are here as a team to motivate and encourage each other to emerge better than we started.  Make sure you connect with our Facebook Group.  (Enter your bib number for admission to the group.

Ride Local - Support Local

The vision of the Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge is to ride locally while connecting across the USA!  We are supporting local and domestic small business who have been hit hard during the Covid19 pandemic.  Your race fees are going directly to support local small businesses.

FAQ

FAQ:

Q: When and where do I ride?
A:  Ride anytime and anywhere you would like.  Ride as many miles each day as you would like.  The only rule here is log your miles in order to earn your finisher medal.   Trail miles, road miles, even trainer miles!  Go out!  Explore!  Find new fun places to ride!  BUT Please DO NOT Literally Ride on I-40!

Q: Will there be beer at the finish line?
A: Absolutely!  BYOB! 

Q: I'm participating in 6 other virtual runs during this time can I count those miles for Run OBX?  
  That is something you will need to take up with your conscience! 

Q: If I register after the race starts on May 25, can I include my back mileage to May 25?
A: NO.  You will begin logging miles on the day you register..you will just have to cover more ground to get to the finish by September 7, 2020.

Q: Can we have a relay team?
A: This is an individual event, but if you trick 5 of your friends into joining you on this adventure you will pick up some pretty sweet bonus race swag!
