Have you ever wanted to do a bicycle overnight camping trip? Well, we are going annd you are invited! We will be starting at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, 16001 Corn Creek Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89166. We will ride approximately 25 miles on a rugged gravel road to our campsite at Desert Pass Campground. This is at 6700 foot elevation so a 3 season sleeping bag works best for this in April. We will camp overnight, cook our own food, and have a peacefull night at the campsite. Please understand, we will be completely self contained by what we carried with us on our bicycles. If you come up with another, loads can be combined. We will cook dinner, drink whiskey, sleep, cook breakfast and head back! Wanna go?

If you have never done this before but have an adventurous spirit, Southwest Bikes can help you out with the necessities. This is a list of what you will need to bring,
