Riding Across The US

(1 image)

Below is a graph from our ride across America in 2009. It starts in Huntington Beach, CA and passes over the Rockies (highest point at Wolf Creek Pass, 10,800 ft) before settling down to Kansas and Missouri... and then the Appalachians before getting back down to sea level.

We can't wait to provide a similar graph for the Americas! See our summary for the 2009 ride across America.


Image is of a graph showing the elevation gained/loss during our ride across America.  Axes are feet versus days.  It starts in Huntington Beach, California at sea level, then gains about 2000 ft before dropping down to below sea level just east of Palm Springs, California.  Then it gains again and continues up to 7300 feet at the Arizona divide near Flagstaff, Arizona, which is 120 miles due north of Phoenix, Arizona.  It then drops slightly, but starts gaining as we ride through Colorado, peaking at 10,400 feet at Wolf Creek Pass at the Continental Divide through the Rocky Mountains.  From there it drops down to about 3000 feet as we ride through Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee.  It gains again to about 4000 feet as we pass through the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina.  From there, it drops down to sea level again as we reach the Atlantic Ocean.
Elevation by day with highest point at Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado at 10,800 feet. See our summary.
