How about a thread about: You should try Cycling In My Home Town Because:
I would like to hear about your Home Town.
Here is mine:
I live in : Salt Lake City Utah
Best Rides: We have 5 Canyons to ascend: Big Cottonwood, Little Cottonwood, Mill Creek
Emigration, City Creek. The Mouths of these canyons all are within 15 miles of each other and will take you from the city to alpine splendor within minutes.
West of us, about a 10 mile ride from my house, you can be in the desert and take lightly traveled roads for hundreds of miles.
For mountain bikers there is no end to opportunities in our nearby mountains and deserts. SEe
Every time you ride you are training for Altitude, our valley floor is at 4250 feet and you can climb to over 9000 feet on pavement in several of the canyons from downtown in an hour or two.
From my home it is only 15 Miles to Snowbird Ski Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon, or 20 miles to Brighton in big Cottonwood Canyon. In the summer when mountain passes are open you can peddle through mountains and valleys making large loop centuries with plenty of scenery, facilities and fun.
There is also a paved tail called the Jordan River Parkway that leads you through a corridor in the center of our valley. The parkway takes you along wonderful marshland areas and is a great ride for novices and children.
Come ride Salt Lake City we have the best rides around and we have the finest assortment of beautiful women cyclist in the World.
