Not too North, not too South, not too early, not too late. Central United States (CUS) is the Goldilocks of our route list. Shortly after the first build in Yorktown, VA, riders tackle the infamous and enchanting Blue Ridge Mountains. As riders pedal through the ever-stretching Heartland, they’ll follow the decades-old path of cross-country cyclists tracing segments of the TransAmerica Trail.
The Midwest eventually gives way to the charms of the Rockies including the Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. Riders then experience some of the best-kept secrets of the West in locales like Jackson, WY and Missoula, MT. After the last build day in Portland, CUS follows the path of Lewis and Clark and ends in Astoria, OR.
