This is the eighth 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 Salt Lake City with Ely.
Segment Rating Summary
Although this is the shortest segment, it is also the most challenging as we need to e-bike 100 miles in one day in the desert in hilly terrain. There is no opportunity to charge the e-bike between Delta and baker. We will post a summary once we have e-biked this segment of the route. The maximum grade is 7.1 %.
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.
