    Great day in N. Utah today!

    Great day in the morning! Anyone else get in a good ride? I did a 30 mile ride this morning between Layton and Bountiful before breakfast. Saw tons of runners and cyclists out there. Anyone on here in that area?

    Bountiful-ite here! I ride most every day into downtown SLC and then home. I also ride Tuesday nights with the Bountiful Mazda group.

    I realize this is nine days late and I'm 70 miles away but yes, I did get in a good ride that day. 10 miles to work, 4-6 miles to and from lunch, and 10-12 miles home. I tend to meander a bit on my way back up the hill. I also got the same ride in on the 6th, 8th, 11th, and again this morning.

    Hi!

    I live in West Point and commute to SLC. I'm interested in riding a bike to work daily... what is the best way to work up to this ride? Is this over-ambitious?

    Thanks!

    While I don't think it's over-ambitious, I wonder if this time of year is a good time to start. Do you often ride in cold weather? I live in in W. Kaysville and work in downtown SLC. I've only ridden to and from work a handful of times and it's almost exactly 25 miles from my doorstep to my office. It took me between an hour and a half to two hours each way on average during the summer and early fall in good weather.
    Do you have the time to commit to commuting from West Point? I know I don't, having a family to take care of.
    If you do start biking to work, I'll try and catch you when you go through Kaysville and ride with you a few times.

    Good times.

    I'm so glad to see some Utahns here. I'm in Midvale and looking to start commuting via bike (with a little Trax and bus thrown in).

    I'm not far from you, I ride from Sandy to downtown a couple of times a week. If you want to do it with someone else, let me know. What is your commute like?

    I'm in Taylorsville, just 2.5 miles west of the ParkWay, I drive a service truck every day, park the filthy thing in the drive way, I have to invent places to go.
    I like to go places on asphalt, but I love to go in the dirt.
    But I am fat and 50 so I get wimpy after 20 or so miles of dirt and say 40 or 50 on road stuff.
    I would like to meet some grandpa types interested in car pooling to some dirt holes.
    I can ride with the nephew, but he is too busy, nobody else I know is dirty minded.

    Fruit Heights

    I live in Fruit Heights, me and another buddy love to cross 89, and ride along the Shoreline Trail there. It's not very scenic, but it's great practice for competitions and endurance!

    This weather is killing my season ski pass. But it's great for the bikes and the R1100S.

    South Ogden here and work at Hill. Count my wife in too. She commutes north of home 10 miles to where she teaches.

    That does not look to good yet, This new highway going in from 215 north may end up with bike provision, but I doubt it.

    Can you use ski passes for lifts to the top with your MTB? You know for them down hill things..

    Nope. We live for the climbing anyway. We like to suffer like that.

    I did get to ride a little, 10 miles exactly, up steep hill mostly(Kearns), maintained 20 plus the whole way, (Excl. lights)with no big front sprocket, on a MTB.

    Old bike, tires low too.

    Pizza sure has lots of carbs, too bad its dark.

    Ya gotta take em when you can get em.
    I had to work all day.

    Twenty plus miles up and down the Jordan Parkway on my 1962 Schwinn 2-speed Traveler yesterday. Great, except for a few idiots out, like the walkers who needed the whole width of the trail, and the clown on the Polaris 4 wheeler, who had his dogs running loose near Chesterfield. Right by the sign saying "No Motor Vehicles" and "Dogs Must Be On Leash". Oh well, didn't have to dodge the Saturday morning crew that shows up later in the year, and races three abreast around the blind curves and through the underpasses.
    Rant off.

    Last two weeks of March I will be working in St. George, I LOVE to ride the Bear Claw, I took a wrong turn last year and did not go where I was headed. I wanted to go to Stucki Springs, I was out of water and had to head back. As soon as I got home I bought a bigger Camel Back. I am also adding another bottle cage.

    I got to tell you Utah MTBers out there, if you haven't ridden the Bear Claw, you should, it will turn you into a kid again. It is just flat fun.

    I do this every March.

    Got out for a nice 28 miler, saw a few others out. Could be just a little warmer, but not bad! Unhealthy air advisory, though.

    Went in to work late today just so I could get in a decent ride. Passed a couple roadies out in the Kaysville area around noonish today. Rest of the week looks pretty good for riding, mostly.
    Btw, where are all you Utahns? We can't sit here and let Nycycle talk to himself the whole time.

    Good times.
