I am planning a 2012 bike trip, the first leg of which will probably be the grand canyon to the pacific ocean.
A little concerned about the water situation for getting to Cali.
Also - I was thinking about the Trek 1.0 bike, does anyone have opinions on this model?
It's a good bike and it did fine during my 2008 trip.
As for water and the desert, you bet it should a concern. Bring plenty each day. Stay hydrated!
