The Ride from Reno, a 667 mile bike ride across the Nevada and Utah deserts, begins Monday, June 13th and concludes Saturday, June 18th at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City.  Most of the route is on US Highway 50 which has the moniker as “The Loneliest Road in America”.  The Loneliest Road well describes the road traveled by each and every cancer patient.

The following is our day-to-day itinerary.

Day One

From Reno to approximately 65 miles east of Fallon, Nevada.  US 395 South to
Nevada Highway 341 to US Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America).

Day Two

From 65 miles east of Fallon, Nevada, to Eureka, Nevada.  All US Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America).

Day Three

From Eureka, Nevada, to approximately 35 miles east of Ely, Nevada.  All US
Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America).

Day Four

From 35 miles east of Ely, Nevada, to Delta, Utah.  All US Highway 50 (The
Loneliest Road in America).

Day Five

Recovery day in Delta, Utah.  Our bodies will need the break but I’ll be doing a 50 mile light spin to flush out the lactic acid that builds up and to keep my old, tired muscles, working.

Day Six

The Huntsman 140, from Delta, Utah, to Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah.  US
Highway 50 to US 6 to Utah SR 68 to Utah SR 73.  Got that?
