Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2008: Mojave National Preserve Mountain-Bike Camping and Hike / Day 12: Keystone Canyon to Sunrise Rock near Cima Dome, Mojave National Preserve 28

My destination today is not set because I don't know if my rear rack repair will hold up or not. All I know for sure is that I'm riding toward Baker and need to get on pavement as soon as possible to reduce vibration on the bike.

I ride from Keystone Canyon at 5300 feet, down to Ivanpah Valley at 2650 feet. I ride up Morning Star Mine Road and end up taking a detour and camping at Sunrise Rock off Cima Road at 5000 feet due to strong wind. 40.3 bicycle miles.
