A ride across twelve states, four regions, and two countries!
It's a ten day ride covering the breadth of the United States, including four regions, twelve states, and two countries. The ride starts in Wilmington, North Carolina and ends in Chula Vista, California with plenty of stops along the way, including a short ride across the U.S. border into Mexico and back. 40 To Phoenix has grown in popularity each year since the first in 2010, when 27 bikes showed up at the Home Office in Phoenix, Arizona while passing through. In 2012 we had over 250 riders and we're planning on excellent numbers again this year!
