Eldorado, tx to El Paso, tx - URGENT reply needed if possible.
« on: October 13, 2012, 11:12:49 pm »
Hello all,

I hope you are well. Sorry for this "urgent" request, but having done all the research I am having doubts about our route from Eldorado to El Paso. Options:

1) Take the 1-10 to Van Horn and then follow Southern Tier route.
2) Cycle up to Pecos and then travel down the 20 onto the 10 (longer and still on highways)
3) Any other options greatly appreciated.

We are in big hurry so the quickest route would be great. (I would love to joing the southern tier, but not an option atm)

Our website is www.britsgonebarmy.com , we are airming to get across in around 27 days, and have had quite a few bike issues so would really appreciate your help with this one.

Many thanks in advance William

The quickest route? That's easy. Just ride 190 to where it joins I-10 then ride the shoulder of the interstate to Fort Hancock. It would be a good idea to get off there and take 20 into El Paso to avoid heavy interstate traffic around the (relatively) big city.

I did this in reverse a few years ago - left El Paso on 20 then I-10 to Kerrville where I took local roads into San Antonio.

Thanks very much litespeed, that is really helpful. We are in Menard now and going to head west to Eldorado and then join the i-10.

Thanks again.
