This site, and specifically the Routes forum, has been super helpful to me during planning of my Pony Express Route solo ride...Sacramento, CA - St. Joseph, MO. I have broken the 2000 mile ride into 3 X one week segments to ride 1 segment each year. Sacramento to Salt Lake City last year and SLC to Scottsbluff, NE this past July all went very smooth thanks to the careful planning and a bit of good luck.
I am planning the final phase of this trek for next Spring and looking for any good advice as to Nebraska riding conditions, good roads and roads to avoid. I am not camping but traveling Credit Card style so anybody with info about where to stay or not stay is also helpful. Currently in the initial planning stages so my route can be adjusted a bit but to stay true to the original Pony Express route it looks something like this:
Day 1- Scottsbluff, NE -Julesburgh, CO
Day 2- J'burgh - N. Platte, NE
Day 3- N. Platte – Kearney
Day 4- Kearney –Nelson
Day 5- Nelson – Marysville, KS
Day 6- Marysville – St. Joseph, MO
Thanks in advance for your input.
