Max and Bailey's 2004 Ride Across America carried them through each of the lower 48 states over a seven month period. Beginning from Raleigh, North Carolina on May 1st, the route headed west across the North Carolina mountains and into the heartlands of America before returning to the east coast and continued in a counter-clockwise circle around the nation. The route predominately followed the back roads and smaller highways, rather than traveling at warp speeds along US Interstates, with hundreds of stops along the way.
