Routes / Starting the Southern Tier in June
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:17:54 am »
Hey all,

Im planning on leaving San Diego on the Southern tier on Saturday, June 16th.  Ill be taking the southern tier to Tempe, then the grand canyon connector to Cedar City where I can pick up the Western Express and enjoy more comfortable temperatures for the rest of my trip across the country.

What advice can you give me for passing through the desert and arizona at such a hot time of the year?  Ive spoken with park rangers who all suggest that I plan on being done cycling by 11, noon latest.  I'm mostly interested in your experiences finding food and water along the way- some stretches of the road between Brawley and Tempe look quite bare, and satellite photos reveal very little.

Thanks in advance
