The second leg of the Challenge!
When leaving Las Vegas Harley-Davidson we will ride the full length of Freemont Street, the historic downtown portion of Vegas' "Strip". We will then continue on the Las Vegas Strip past the world’s most magnificent concentration of Casinos. We will then turn west and ride through Pahrump and on across Death Valley into California and up against the east slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Death Valley, while only one hundred miles across, will separate the men from the boys in the August heat. It can get to 125 degrees, plus on a good day. Even at night it can be over one hundred degrees. Going north along the Sierra Nevada Mountains, we will turn west and ride into Yosemite National Park, past El Capitan, the Alwanee Lodge and the other great features of Yosemite Valley.
Departing Yosemite we will ride through the historic gold fields of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and on up the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe into Reno, Nevada and Chester’s Reno Harley-Davidson, our second check point.
Stay Tuned there is so much more to come!
