I'm going to be in LV for work in the beginning of March and was hoping to get some cycling recs. I know of Mt. Charleston outside of Vegas, and I'll probably try to climb up that as much as possible (weather permitting).
I was also planning to leave Vegas on Friday night (or maybe sat morning) - and drive some place to climb saturday morning/afternoon. Some quick work led me to these options:
1. 18 North - climb from Apple Valley to Big Bear. Is this route going to be clear?
2. Nine Mile Canyon Road - near Ridgecrest, sometime of a detour, could be really cold?
3. Shirley Meadows - also a detour, could be cold/snowy?
Do these ideas make sense? What else could I do?
