This is the seventh segment of a cross-country e-bike ride inspired by an historic military convoy that followed the Lincoln Highway in 1919. Ike Eisenhower was a reporting officer of the convoy. His experience would ultimately lead to the creation of the US Interstate Highway System.

Expedition Commander, 1919 Convoy
This segment of the route connects Laramie with Salt Lake City.
Segment Rating Summary
This is a challenging and long segment (500 miles) and not a route for unprepared cyclists, especially between Craig and Dinosaur. We will post a segment rating summary once we have e-biked this segment of the route. The maximum grade is 9.4%.
To avoid Interstate 80, we need to cycle south of the Lincoln Highway on Route 40.
The red line is the e-bike route. Red markers indicate stops by the historic military convoy that left Washington DC on July 7, 1919. TH markers indicate trail head markers.
