Empowering The Bicycle Traveler

Basin and Range

road and mountains

“Supreme over all is silence. Discounting the cry of the occasional bird, the wailing of the pack of coyotes, silence- a great, spacial silence- is pure in the Basin and Range. It is a silent immensity with mountains in it.”- John McPhee in Basin and Range

The Adventure Cycling Association
has mapped a route called the Western Express between Pueblo, Co and San Francisco, CA. the second section of which crosses Nevada and neatly bisects the Basin and Range province.
Obviously, I need to ride my bike across Nevada on highway 50, a.k.a. The Loneliest Highway in America. We started from Carson City, NV on Oct 8, 2013 and I started a journal at crazyguyonabike to document our trip.
