I begin the stimulating descent down Morning Star Mine Road into Ivanpah Valley, and I don't stop until I reach the bottom
The almost-1500-foot drop over 10 miles on Morning Star Mine Road is one of the best bicycle downhills in Mojave National Preserve. It's never steep, but I have a tailwind here as I often do. I take the lane and ride at over 35 miles per hour for a while.
It's not nearly so much fun in the uphill direction, which can feel endless after a while.
