Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2008: Mojave National Preserve Mountain-Bike Camping and Hike / Day 10: Nipton to Keystone Canyon, Mojave National Preserve, via Ivanpah Road 47

I leave pavement and civilization again today.

I ride from Nipton at 3000 feet, crossing the low point of Ivanpah Valley at about 2650 feet, then I climb Ivanpah Road to the mouth of Keystone Canyon at about 5300 feet.

My rear rack breaks around mile 20 on Ivanpah Road. Now what? 28.2 bicycle miles today.
