US 50 in Nevada?
« on: July 09, 2010, 06:26:41 am »
Planning on doing a little biking in NV in a couple of weeks. Just wondering if anybody lurking around in the forums has been on US 50. Looks like an interesting ride. Thinking about doing 50 miles on US 50. Anybody have a favorite section?

Where will you be located?  Hwy 50 runs completely across the state (420 miles) so to pick just 50 will depend on your logistics.  If you have someone who will give you sag support the section I like the best is the old hwy 50 from Middlegate to Austin.  It has some good climbing and virtually no traffic.  Unless you can carry lots of water you will need a sag wagon.

Suggest you take a look at this current journal on CGOAB: particularly days 7 to 10 or so. Second Aggies' note. Where you plan to ride makes a big difference.
