Los Angeles to Las Vegas by bicycle in January
Dear Knowledgeable Friends,
Would love some input on how to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in January 2013.
I've seen conflicting opinions regarding using I-15, but this appears to be the most direct route, which is a plus. Any ideas on the best route from a safety and distance point of view?
Another factor to consider is the dry cold weather. I'm in good physical shape, but don't do a lot of long distance bike trips, let alone in the winter through the desert. I plan on using a high end racing bike with thin tires, does this make sense?
Lastly, is anyone interested in making this trip together with me!?! Dates are Jan 4-7 2013.
Thank you in advance to anyone who shares their experiences / opinions!!
