Cross-Country Route 40 Bike Trip - Day 12: Dinosaur to Craig, Colorado


Distance: 89.0 miles
Description: Day 12 presents one of the most difficult rides in terms of logistics. Once you depart Dinosaur, there are absolutely no services until you reach Craig, some 88 miles later. No water, no food and no accommodations. There is a general store and a gas station in Maybell (58 miles) but they are not always open. On top of that, the changes in elevation can also be a challenge. You'll descend for the first 18 miles followed by a moderate 1,100 foot climb over 20 miles. Then there will be a descent followed by a 500 foot climb during the last 15 miles.
