Cross-Country Route 40 Bike Trip - Day 6: Battle Mountain to Elko, Nevada


Distance: 88.6 miles
Description: There are two routings for the Day 6 biking. This is the safer but longer of the two. It uses back roads to avoid I-80. This section provides for some relatively easier biking with only two major ascents - one south of Palisades Canyon and the other over a back road west of Elko. Both ascents are climbs of about 1,200 feet. There are plenty of towns along the way and with the exception of Palisades Canyon you'll find yourself well supported. Once again, you are advised to carry plenty of drinking water with you.
