Route Description

Created in 2004, the Sierra route traverses the southwestern desert climates of West Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before heading north up the California, Oregon, and Washington coasts and into British Columbia and the Yukon before finally reaching Alaska. The route stops in large cities, small towns, and national parks along the way, including: Coronado National Forest, AZ; South Lake Tahoe, CA; Joshua Tree, CA; San Francisco, CA; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; Vancouver, BC; Prince George, BC; and Whitehorse, YT. The Sierra route was one of the two original routes that were created when Texas 4000 was founded in 2004.

For the 2021 summer ride, the Sierra route will only be riding in the lower 48 states with the ride ending in Austin, Texas.
