Expedition and challenge specialists Across the Divide, have added two new cycling odysseys to their roster for 2014. Building on the success of their renowned European rides the company has looked further afield for the coming year and added more than a dash of the ‘unusual’ to their offering.
Running from April 19 to 29 the Costa Rica Coast to Coast takes the more intrepid cyclist from the Caribbean coast, through banana plantations and rainforest, past volcanoes and across tropical rivers, before arriving at the Pacific. Whilst the Death Valley Cycle Ride (November 22 to 29) is the opportunity the pedal through Death Valley National Park, on the California/Nevada border, crossing three mountain passes and covering a total distance of 264miles in five days. A challenging – and almost certainly hot ride despite the November dates – but with the prospect of a night of Thanksgiving celebrations in Las Vegas at the end.
