Sierra Cascades - Finish lineNovember 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C
Today, we spent the last day on the Sierra-Cascades route. We enjoyed some last views of the Sierras and had a really pleasant ride with mainly tailwinds through the foothills until we could already see the Mexican border. Before crossing it in the morning, we celebrated this part of the trip with a beer in Potrero County Park where we camp for the night.
All in all, it took us 51 days to travel this route from the Canadian to the Mexican border. We encountered all kinds of weather conditions: plenty of rain in the North, snow at Crater Lake, heat in the high desert, crazy winds in Southern California. We had to climb A LOT and stopped counting the passes and summits. We met so many nice people who supported us with warm showers, a cosy bed, spontaneous invites, food, great conversations or just cheering when we climbed uphill again. Thanks to everyone at this point, you made the US an awesome experience for us.
We are now looking forward to entering Mexico tomorrow and opening a new chapter of our adventure.Read more
