2014 Mazda CX-5: Wyoming Road Trip Part 1

August 1, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

Last week, I piled the miles on our long-term 2014 Mazda CX-5 driving it more than 2,500 miles to Wyoming where the roads are straight and empty.

I hauled two bikes on the back throughout as we plowed through 115-degree desert heat in Baker, Nevada and crossed the Continental Divide no fewer than six times in Wyoming. There was rain, wind, lightning and hail. There were trucks, deer, antelope and all manner of rodent, dead and alive.

The Mazda survived without so much as a nicked windshield. I got no speeding tickets. And, like I predicted, I was comfortable throughout. More details to come.

    What brand of bike rack is that? Do you like it? I've been considering a Thule and I like that flatbed style. Can the cops hassle you for blocking the license plate when bike are mounted and also when it's unloaded and folded up?

    Nice picture. That's some beautiful country out there.
