I’m really glad you will be joining us on this epic ride – I’ll have those soft bags ready for you.
I haven’t checked out the hotels at our stops in Battle Mountain, Wendover or Eureka yet, but there are a good number of options at each of those places.
The Outdoor Inn has 6 rooms in their main hotel, and an additional 10 rooms at another building they call The Barn. The rooms in the main hotel are $85, while the rooms in the barn are $69 . The Barn is cheaper because there is only a shared bathroom down the hall. They only open The Barn if the main hotel is full. You can reach The Outdoor Inn at (775) 488-2311.
The Tsawhawbits B&B has 5 rooms available for $100, but breakfast is included. You can reach the Tsawhawbits B&B at (775) 488-2338.
I chose to save a couple bucks and reserved a room at The Outdoor Inn on October 8th.
The longest distance to gas on this entire route is 188 miles. With fuel injection and a 5 gallon tank on your XCX you won’t need to carry an extra fuel bladder.
Here is the daily distance to gas breakdown:
Day 1, Reno to Battle Mountain: total distance 269 miles, gas available at Middlegate Station 125 miles in as well as in Battle Mountain
Day 2, Battle Mountain to Jarbidge: total distance 187 miles, gas available in Jarbidge
Day 3, Jarbidge to Wendover: total distance 219 miles, gas available in Montello 162 miles in as well as in Wendover
Day 4, Wendover to Eureka: total distance 188 miles, gas available in Eureka
Day 5, Eureka to Reno: total distance 258 miles, gas available at Middlegate Station 129 miles in
The total mileage for this adventure is only 1121 miles.
I will take you up on the “gas bag”, even though I should be able to do 195 miles.
I will be trailering my bike out to Middlegate to meet up with you on the 7th of OCT.
I have made the following motel reservations:
OCT 7th – BIG CHIEF MOTEL – BATTLE MOUNTIAN
OCT 8th – OUTDOOR INN – JARBIDGE
OCT 9th – QUALITY INN – WENDOVER
OCT 10TH – SUNDOWN LODGE – EUREKA
OCT 11th -I will be stopping at Middlegate to collect my truck & trailer.
