Join Us for the Portion of the Tour de USA 2010 in Your State

Tour de USA Begins in Just 19 Days

I leave El Segundo, California, in just 19 days.  The trip will last 46 days and will cover just over 8,000 miles.  We’ll be connecting with local media in each town to try and spread the message about the importance of testing.

Get a Copy of the Daily Ride Map

You can download a PDF of the route at the event website, Tour de USA.org.  The map shows the cities we will be in each evening.

Actual Daily Route

We will publish the actual roads we will travel the evening prior – two days prior if we can get it down – at the event blog, http://tourdeusa2010.wordpress.com, on the Tour de USA 2010 Facebook page, and on our Twitter accounts: 29000Men, robertwhess, and Tour de USA.

Join the Ride in Your State

We hope you can join us for the portion of the ride that comes through your state.  You can see our progress in real time because we will be using a SPOT GPS tracker.  Just go to http://bit.ly/tourdeusa2010 The SPOT GPS transmits our location every 10 minutes, so it will be easy to find us.  Look for a Harley Low Rider with a large American flag covering the sissy bar luggage.
