Journey of Discovery bicycle tour



May 31: A tree! Adventure Cycling Association offers the following caution for anyone crossing Nevada by bike: "The route in Nevada, along U.S. Highway 50, was described some years ago by a LIFE magazine writer as 'The Loneliest Road in America'. . . This section of the Western Express Route is considered very difficult due not only to terrain, but also due to lack of water, temperature extremes, and long mileages without services. Carrying a water purifer is strongly advised for any water access outside of towns. Nevada is extremely dry and has no shade except for three trees east of Fallon." I had discovered one of the 3 trees!
