    But I can tell you that the Western Express route in Nevada is basically US 50 - actually NV 206 from Calif border to Carson City, plus a totally empty NV 722 east of Middlegate to Austin. In Utah...

    Ryan - ACA is pretty proprietary about their maps. They put a lot of resources into them and offer them at a moderate price - certainly not cheap. For that reason, the only available online overviews...

    Another PS - I've toured cross-country in all seasons.
    Fall is wonderful, but the days really start to get short as you get into October.
    An Oct 1 start date will push you into late November.

    Definitely west-to-east if you are doing a fall trip in much of the West.
    But if you are starting in southern California it will be tricky.

    Thanks Spin - -

    At least, for now, the Old Google Maps still works with that link.
    My Google Classic link no longer worked after May 1.
    I think the newer Google Maps is garbage.

    Not sure what your plans entail - how much, how far, how to get back.
    Highway 138 from Roseburg to Crater Lake is a great ride.

    East of the Cascades, the roads have far less traffic, in general....

    You really shouldn't have any problems in Nevada/Utah if you plan well.

    I have posted a list of water locations in Nevada on the Western Express a number of times - -

    There's been some heat in the discussion, but some of us really dislike even the short stretch of I-80 that is part of the TransAm and others of us find it tolerable for a...

    "It's a shame ..." does not equal "upbraid" - - at least not in most dictionaries I can find.

    Yes, you can ride on nearly all of I-80 in Wyoming with the exception of a short stretch in Cheyenne - - but why? I-80 has an insanely high volume of truck traffic - plus the shoulder, although wide...

    As for the Black Hills, in general it is best to stay west of US 385, south of Deadwood/Lead, and north of US 16 - the western Black Hills have that incredible mix of meadows and forest. Valleys tend...

    I did some wonderful riding in the Badlands last year late May after a very wet spring. I had never seen the Badlands so green. But in mid summer it is parched, 100+ degrees, brown, and grit between...

    I have biked all of the Badlands and much of the Black Hills over the years.
