Vegas - Best one day trips?
Will be in Vegas in October and have booked some bikes through Eagle Rider for 2 days. I am having a discussion with the folks I am riding with about two doable 1 day trips. By doable, I mean I am looking for trips in the 6 - 8 hr range. The people I am riding with are newer riders and are not too keen on riding 8+ hrs.
I saw the post by Medplt about this route;
"One of my favorite most of the day rides in the Las Vegas area is Valley of Fire then south along lake mead to hoover dam, and back through boulder city with a stop at the boulder dam brewing company. The reason to start at Valley of fire is you only have to pay once. It's the perfect two up most of the day excursion."
This seems like a great one, any estimate on time to do this at a leisurely pace?
The two other choices so far are 1) Death Valley and 2) Grand Canyon. Are either of those doable in the 6 - 8 hr range, yet still be able to see anything and not just getting there and back?
Any other suggestions?
