hello. this is my 1st post here. in 8 days i'm driving to las vegas from philadelphia with my brother. he's staying there and i have to find my way back. i'm bringing my bike and gear. does anyone want to ride back with me?

or more importantly, does anyone know of any biking groups/organizations who often criss-cross that part of the country? i was thinking it might be nice to run into someone in case i start to go whacky in the desert.

has anyone done that part of the country already? can you give me any suggestions on a good route?

thanks, joe.
