Announcing 10 Degrees Latitude North America. How would you like to wake up to a warm breakfast, cycle all day along the Pacific coast, then dine with friends in the evening to the background harmony of the Pacific ocean waves? If so, you have come to the right place. We started 10DL as one part eco-tourism, one part adventure travel, one part quest. Join us and together we will push ourselves to push beyond our expectations. Training starts now for our expedition across North America from the 42nd to the 32nd latitude. This is an expedition down the majestic California coastline. The event begins in Washington and ends in California. It includes a grueling 1000 miles of biking, kayaking and an epic 10-mile swim from San Quentin prison to Alcatraz, a challenge for even the most seasoned open water swimmers.
