A friend and I are planning on taking a road trip to bike tour around Death Valley in the winter. Our tentative plan is to get there with a bike and a car with a rack, map out groups of close-together (<40 mi) locations we'd like to see, drive out, and then bike between them.
Does anyone have any suggestions (advice, warnings, etc) or know anything about touring in Death Valley? From what I know, there are no nearby bike shops, but is there a way to rent a bike nearby? How were your experiences touring in Death Valley?
