Virtually Biking Across American - Day 18

On day 18, I rode 25 miles across Nevada. Starting on the Pony Express Trail northeast of the Sulphur Springs Pony Express Station (N39 50 05.7 W116 04 08.3), the ride continued northeast to the Diamond Spring station (N39 54 47.7 W115 52 21.2).

From there, I headed up Telegraph Canyon. This included a 3 plus mile climb with a grade ranging between 6% and 12%; a climb of over 1,500 feet. On Google Maps, the road does not continue down the other side. I used the feature of the iFit web site that allows you to trace the road on the satellite to connect up with White Pine County Road 1. I finished the day just past the Jacob Wells Pony Express Station.
