On day 19, I rode 26.3 miles across Eastern Nevada. Starting at the intersection of the Elko Hamilton Stage Road and White Pine County Road 6, I rode northeast to the site of the Ruby Valley Pony Express Station [N40 02 52.8 W115 29 42.2]. The station building was relocated to the grounds of the Northeastern Nevada Museum in Elko in 1960. I then followed the Overland Road southeast pass the Mountain Springs Pony Express Station [N40 00 54.2 W115 20 22.5].
It was a nice challenging ride with two climbs. The grade topped out on the second climb at 7.5%.
