I will be rolling out of Ushuaia in November and spending the next 18 spinning my way up to Prudhoe Bay. I have recently been planning my route through the USA and was wondering whether anyone could give me some opinions or advice on plotting a course from the Eastern edge of the grand Canyon over to Las Vegas, up through Death Valley and into Yosemite?
I know there are cycling restrictions in Grand Canyon National Park that make a direct route difficult.
Also, does anyone have any thoughts on the availability of water along this section of route (Death Valley being an obvious concern).
My complete US route will be taking me from Tecate, up to the Grand Canyon, across through Las Vegas, Death Valley, up through Yosemite, over to San Francisco and then up the Pacific coast all the way to Canada. This will involve sections of the Southern Tier, Grand Canyon Connector, Sierra Cascades and Pacific Coast Adventure Cycling routes.
"Git yourself a gun!" was the advice of the Deputy Sheriff in a little town mid Texas. Now coming from UK I wouldn't hardly know one end from the other, "you need a gun son" (I'm 61!) Why? "Cos the motel you plan on staying in has the biggest 'roaches ever and if you don't git them, they sure as hell gonna git you"
I've cycled many different countries and never felt the need to be armed, follow your instincts and be open to people.
Just finished the \southern Tier, the people I met made it special. Thanks yanks!
Oh and definately support the use of a mirror.
I'm there, will turn 60 in August, will celebrate with my first self supported tour in New Mexico in late September, keep riding, it's always a beautiful day for a bike ride.
