Medford to Vegas
This is a big trip.
I only did a couple of hundred miles a day, looking at the national parks and such like on the way. I stayed L-V, Springdale, San Juan, Moab, Torrey and Kanab, and took my time exploring the area on amazingly quiet roads.
This is a hot ride in the summer and can be cold and even snowy in the winter as you're quite high up. Dress according to the season!
Hazard: If you're staying in a town, fill up before you leave in the morning: Gas stations get few and far between.
Hazard: Tar snakes are greasy in the summer!
Hazard: Dehydration: Take plenty of water....and drink it!
Bike Hire in L-V @ Eagle Riders-Recommended
Vegas from palm desert
Great views and twisty roads for a quick ride.
Visiting Las Vegas? This is the loop to take the rental. This is a great run through the desert along Lake Mead. The corners are awesome and the scenery is really incredible. Stop at Echo Bay Resort for lunch then head over to the Valley of Fire State Park and bring the camera! Beautiful place. Your choice is head back the way you came or just scoot on back to Vegas down I15. I used to live in Vegas, this is a great loop for anyone.
Mentioned here as a nice scenic alternative to Interstate 15, quite a good road and much more interesting than I15!
The loneliest road in America should be experienced by everyone once, if only to lose yourself and then find yourself again.
