Routes / Grand Canyon & Death Valley
« on: July 15, 2009, 04:49:09 pm »
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.

Gear Talk / Trailers Vs. Panniers - Prudhoe Bay to Tierra Del Puergo

I'll be setting off on a 15 month trip from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska in July. I'd always figured i'd be using just panniers, now i'm thinking of using a trailer. Does anyone have any advice on the pros and cons of the two options for this route? I'm still leaning away from a trailer (more to go wrong).

In July i shall be setting off from Prudhoe Bay on a planned 15 month trip down to Tierra Del Fuego.
I'm struggling to ascertain which GPS unit will suit me best. I'll want solar recharging (through separate unit if necessary) the ability to upload a huge range of maps and the capability for my family in London to track my progress. It's proving a headache ... any one done the route and got any advice?
