A group of us have decided to ride the Pony Express Trail.
We had considered making this an over-nighter, but it is getting a leeetle bit cold at night, so the plan is changed to a day ride.
Unfortunately the station only has regular gas, these two bikes call for premium, so they ride back to the previous town to get the higher grade gas. The rest of us decide to press on and the two BMWs can catch up. We didn't see them again.
Look out Pass
At Simpson Springs we meet up with another one of the group.
The Fish Springs bird refuge. l to r; Dave, Ken, Gary, Me.
We ride into Nevada and on to Wendover where we get a quick bite to eat, gas, and then take I-80 for the super-slab-slog back home. From my house back to my house is 370 miles.
One of our group ran out of gas a few miles short of Wendover, but another rider had some extra in his pannier, so it all worked out fine.
It was a great ride, PERFECT weather (it was chilly in the morning), and as is usual, very little traffic on the 140 (or so) miles of the PET.
