The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
In keeping with this vision, in 2002 a Troop of Boy Scouts in the Elk Grove area organized a six-day cycling tour covering over 420 miles down the coast of California from San Francisco to Carpenteria. Subsequent tours were held in 2004, 2006, and 2010. Since that first tour 54 young men and 37 adult leaders have completed the journey. Each year it has grown bigger and has involved a broader group of Boy Scouts from various troops throughout the Elk Grove/Sacramento area and has become a hallmark experience for the boys.
For the 2012 tour the group decided on a theme centered on bringing awareness to physical fitness and cycling safety for our youth with two core messages of Breaking the Chain of Obesity, and helmet safety when riding. The 2012 tour will promote these messages as we make our way down the coast of California with the goal of not only leading by example, but also promoting this message as we train and ride.
