Hi

Me and 2 friends are planning a cycle tour this May going from Santa Cruz to the Yosemite and then heading south down the west side of Yosemite. We will then head east and along the top of the Mojave desert and up to Las Vegas. Does anyone know if the second part of the journey will be possible with the heat at that time of year and are there any other safety implications?

Many thanks for you help.
Luke
