Best transportation?

Post by SarahAnn_Love » Sun Aug 18, 2019 8:23 pm

Hi! It’s my first year...I’m camping at 2:30 but am planning on spending a lot of time around 9:30/10, is a normal bike the best mode of transportation between the 2? I understand they are very far apart... Thank you!

They are pretty far apart, but you Just have to head across the open playa to go in the right direction. Maybe a scenic 15 minute bike ride. My preference is a cruiser bike as opposed to a mountain bike. The playa is flat and you'll get to ride up straight on the cruiser. Don't forget a good dust mask and goggles. The reports are it's pretty dusty. :shock:

Oh nice thank you! I wasn’t sure that we could go directly across instead of around! Shouldn’t be too bad on a regular bike I guess :) have a beautiful week!
