Leg 9: Following That Desert Sunset

Our final leg pushes west across the beautiful western deserts and plains of North America back to the Santa Monica pier where it all began. I love the desert, I find it incredibly beautiful despite (or maybe because) of the harsh and deadly conditions. It will be hot, water sources scarce, and it will test the physical and mental strength that Anna and I will have built up after 13000+ miles of riding. In addition to the harsh conditions we will be visiting some amazing places, some of which I saw on my last bike ride and some that will be new to me. I don’t think the weather will be too harsh April – May but it is likely we will start doing more evening and early morning riding, particularly in Texas. These 2500 miles over 56 days will have the following highlights:

  • Six Flags Fiesta Texas
  • Hot Springs!
  • Santa Fe
  • Pie Town and Toaster House!!!
  • Phoenix
  • Grand Canyon
  • Hoover Dam
  • Las Vegas
  • Six Flags Magic Mountain
  • Six Flags Hurricane Harbor
