Okay, so I have a probable support vehicle [RV] manned by friends from Perth going from SF to BRC, which may or may not have enough seats to drive all of us down there, depending on who ends up going. I may even be able to go from SF to Reno with them, as one of their core party members is going to Worldcon and will probably be flying in to meet them in Reno, and taking my seat.
So I'm looking at different [and preferably sustainable] ways of getting to BRC from either SF or Reno, and am interested specifically in cycling from Reno to BRC. For anyone who has cycled from Reno to BRC: How long did it take, how easy/hard was it, what is the traffic like, what kind of rig did you have, did you take all your own gear or have a support vehicle: I've read a few other threads and seems its' easy enough to buy a bike in Reno, I'm curious about bike trailers, panniers, other stuff. Ideally I'd be buying a bike in Reno and most stuff as late as possible, carrying a couple of days water & food but having rest brought in with support crew.
Alternatively, is there anyone flying into Reno who is interested in cycling from Reno to BRC in a similar fashion?
