Death Valley Ride Report: Day 1

  • Motorcycle Miles: 300
  • Bicycle Miles: 0

Kernville is a nice little stop over on the way to Death Valley, and approximately 120 miles away from my first bicycle climb.

I took Highway 25 down the central valley, cut over to I5 to test out the motorcycle-bicycle rig on the horrors of Interstate 5, and then took 178 along the Kern River to Kernville.

The rig behaved pretty well, but definitely requires awareness when dealing with tractor-trailer buffeting.  Riding no hands would be ill-advised.

One of many diversions, this one along Highway 25 in San Benito county
