Tour of America - Volume I

Seattle to San Diego - the first volume of Blu Acciaio's grand Tour of America has been completed. Feeling mighty confident after Tour de Danube and Passo dello Stelvio, the management of Blu Acciaio invited team members and friends to a brainstorm. The purpose was to come up with a worthy successor to those tours. The answer to that question turned out to be Tour of America - Volume I, II and III. This post is about Volume I, covering Seattle to San Diego. Later volumes will cover Anchorage to Seattle and the legendary TransAm Route.

Below is our final route. It is exact and based on GPX-files we recorded along the way. Check out our GPX-files and photos below the map.
