1. If you open the route in Google Roadmap or Google Hybrid (pulled down from the "Relief Map" tab) you will get a more up-to-date view of the roads and paths. Some of the other maps are dated.
2. Riverside Road can be ridden either on a pedestrian/bike path (shown on the map) or on the roadway itself. There is some traffic, particularly heading from Bunkerville back into Mesquite.
3. Part of the ride within the city of Mesquite is also on a separate pedestrian/bike path (shown on the map) starting off of Hafen Lane and ending at Old Mill Road.
4. This mapping program tends to under-compute the total ride mileage by roughly 10%, based on mileage for this ride when it has been actually ridden.
