Utah County- A Pretty Great Place To Work (And Ride)

I've been spending more time riding in the UC than in Draper so far this season. The dirt is dry, there is some cool new single track, and the UC scene is full of fast riders who are always up for a ride. But if you come down, leave your 18T cog at home. The UC is steep.

My new favorite lunch ride looks like this (I hijacked this from Miles cuz I don't have a fancy bike computer that can do this).


Start from the shooting range, up the jeep road to the cliff's, drop into the race course, do a lap, climb out to the road, back down to the shooting range, over to the BST and catch the new single track.

A lot of turns and a good pitch for a single speed.

Come on down and do some trail building the UC way- Ride it.

The SLC is overrated. The new one-track is going to develop into some fun twists and turns. Nice little loop to tack onto the normal BST ride.

Dug-Come down for an interview (bring your bike). It's a tight group down here. We'll find something.

Grizzly- SLC is so 2000 and 8.

Bob- The UC welcomes 29ers with open arms. Welcome to the club.

Bob- It was YOU who called and tipped off the trail police wasn't it?

You can ride legal trails anywhere. Only in the UC can you ride illegal trails.
