New + question about death valley ride + Vegas

Hello cyclists!

I own a cervelo S3 since 2014, and I named her "Red Revolution", and I live in San Francisco. I've been to bicycle forums including cervelo forum, and they're pretty much dead so I hope I get some answers here about Death Valley Ride & Vegas.

First week of June I am planning to do solo ride through Death Valley from Panamint Springs to Furnace Creek (55 mi) or to Death Valley Junction (85.4 mi) only if I have energy left from heat wave. I would love to hear your experience road cycling through Death Valley in the past, do you have any tips for me? I am planning to start at 6am, it will be 80 degrees warm to 120 in late afternoon. I always carry tubes with me, but tire? Did you carry extra tire? Two water bottle are enough or should I use camelpak ?

After Death Valley, I will be staying in Vegas for 4 days, and I heard Red Rock canyon is great spot for cyclists, what else in Vegas should I check out?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I will post a picture of my Red Revolution after posting more than 10 posts.

Welcome to Bike Forums. This is the Introductions forum. Not many people read posts in here. You'll get more answers if you ask in the SoCal subforum or the Road Cycling forum.

Are you moderator? If so, can you move my post in there?

Sure. I'll move it to the SoCal Regional Rides subforum.
