From the ancient sequoias of Yosemite National Park dwarfed by the breathtaking El Capitan, passing through farmland and rural communities, we’ll even have the chance to stop to sample the local wine and produce in Walnut Grove on our way to San Francisco!

Costa Rica Coast-to-Coast Cycle
One of the toughest challenges out there, but one of the most rewarding too! Starting on the Pacific Coast, we’ll pass by the Mirabelle and Tenorio volcanoes on our way to camp at the base of the famous Arenal Volcano. The hilly and hot ride across this volcanic country is sure to test us, but the sight of the Caribbean coast and final night in San Jose make it all worth it!return to adventure journal
