Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / Spring 2012: Mojave National Preserve Bicycle-Camping and Hiking / Day 8: I leave Mid Hills Campground and ride over to the Twin Buttes area, Mojave National Preserve, to set up a campsite there 20

Easy day (hey, I'm on vacation!): 16.4 bicycle miles on the 10-ton bike plus about 800 feet of elevation gain, and a fun 1700 feet of elevation drop. Another perfect day temperature-wise: it only hits 77F at Cima and drops to 41F at night.
