    I was in the Ozarks 35 years ago on an old state highway and saw a squiggly arrow sign with another below it that said something like "No Passing Zones Not Marked Next 45 Miles - Passing Not Recommended"

    I've seen cyclists riding across the I 80 shoulder unsupported with Bob Trailers, riding solo. Support isn't so critical, because there are motorists and cell service all the way across. 20 miles in there is the scale house and rest area and also at 70 miles into the ride, so water is even available fairly available. Also, in the Summer, if traveling east, you generally have a strong tailwind to help.

    Yep that is true. You can ride unsupported if you have room on your bike for water and food. There is a cool story about a dude named Bill Rashel who tried to cross the Salt Flats on a bicyle in 1896. He was the toughest guy you ever saw.

    Rode a Honda 160 through there in 1968 when I was 17. Price, Utah to L.A in two days. No interstate on this route then.

    Rode my CB-1100-F through this exact route about 4 years ago. 100+ Yuck. Absolutely stunning scenary though. Would like to spend a week just poking around here.

    When I've been fortunate enough to have the extended time needed for a bicycle tour the thing I've dreaded seeing the most was the end destination. I've always had a fantasy of having someone pay me to ride my bike all day.....
