Sand to Snow
California to Colorado
5,000 km - 10 weeks -countless adventures
The Sand to Snow tour started in Monterey in April 2016 and led us through the high-tech forge of Silicon Valley, to the signal-free wilderness of the USA.
On Haibike ePerformance bikes, driven by a Yamaha motor, we rode 5,000 km (3,100 mi) from coastal California to Colorado mountains. In 10 weeks, we cycled from the lowest point of North America in Death Valley across the highest mountains in Western USA. In 180 hours we climbed a total of 57,000 meters (187,000 feet) in elevation and before we happily made it to Denver.
