So although the bikes may have been handed back and the road trip finished, Dana and I have stayed on for a few days more to finish the holiday off in LA. I’ve done all three days in one post because we’ve not really done too much beyond chilling and enjoying Venice. That said, the […]Read more "Days 18/19/20: They Think It’s All Over, It Is Now..

Having arrived into LA yesterday, we saved the conclusion of our trip for today. Waking early to beat the traffic, we all met at Santa Monica Pier. Long considered the end point of a road trip, the pier is the western end of Route 66. As such, it seemed the best place to meet up […]Read more "Day 17: 4000 Miles? Completed it.

Today is the final proper day of the roadtrip. Having completed Death Valley yesterday, today we rode down through California and into Los Angeles. Setting off in the morning, the entire section of California we were in was under weather warning for strong winds and dust storms. Two things that are absolutely cracking when you’re […]Read more "Day 16: The End is Nigh (Olancha, CA -> Los Angeles, CA)"
So after a very cold night with no lights, water, or heating; we awoke to all systems go! Everything was back on, so we went into the now open Aleinn for breakfast. Featured in the film ‘Paul’, the Aleinn is a little gem and I’d definitely recommend a visit. After filling […]Read more "Day 15: DEATH (valley) (Rachel/Area 51, NV -> Olancha, CA)"
After the drinking of last night, we did a very late check out and left at about 4pm in search of tonight’s hotel. Las Vegas really is a city in the middle of a desert. When you head north and within minutes are in the middle of nowhere, it’s even more obvious. Eventually, after about […]Read more "Day 14: Aliens, thousands of ’em!

Today is the day we finally hit up Las Vegas, the city we’ve all been waiting for. Leaving our hotel, we headed north and left the interstate towards Route 66 territory. I’m not sure whether it’s something about this section of the country but it is bug central. In particular, we keep getting hit […]Read more "Day 13: It’s vegas time! (Phoenix, AZ -> Las Vegas, NV)"
So, we’re in Arizona and almost at the end of our mile crunching to get to Las Vegas. Having stayed overnight in Tucson, the plan was to head for Kingman for this evening. The plan didn’t work out. (Cacti, with Dana for scale) We discovered that Tucson was home to the […]Read more "Day 12: Chocks Away (Tucson, AZ -> Phoenix, AZ)"
