These products are suggested as a companion product to the printed Adventure Cycling Route maps and feature the same services listed on the physical maps.

Section 2 of the Western Express Route begins in Fallon, Nevada, and heads east along U.S. Highway 50. This road was described some years ago by a Life magazine writer as "The Loneliest Road in America." You'll see occasional vehicles on the road but towns and services are spaced, in some instances a long day's ride apart. In most cases there are no homes or ranches between services. The maps note where the longest stretches without services are located. There are two 80+ mile streches without any services. This section of the Western Express Route is considered very difficult due not only to terrain, but also due to lack of water, temperature extremes, and long mileages without services. Carrying a water purifier is strongly advised for any water access outside of towns. Nevada is extremely dry and has no shade except for three trees east of Fallon that our researchers found. This section ends in Cedar City, Utah.
