Hello From Salt Lake City

Hi Everyone,

I just joined. These forums look like they have pretty good activity. I started riding last week of June. Been having a great time riding both my mtn bike and road bike. Any one have any great rides they recommend for a newbie?

WOW! where would I start, lets see I don't know how old yall is or how hard you ride. I retired from MTB riding as I never had time. But I did find some real fun MTB spots, 5 mile pass ATV area has some fun MTB riding, everything from gullies to chasing jack rabbits if you got the energy. I didn't care for anything in Davis County, personally.
The 5 Mile pass is a thing where you decide how much you want to do, and its fun.
I found the funnest riding in St. George and Moab, but thats a lot of driving.
I now just ride the Long Haul Trucker any where I can where I might not get hit by a car.
I wish you well in your new sport and have to say Cycling is the best thing that ever happened to me.

You need to go here to find out anything you want to know about mountain biking:

For a quiet, peaceful, road ride, try the Jordan Parkway Trail. Just find the Jordan River, there are trail heads everywhere. For a flat, easy ride, try the Legacy Highway trail. Immigration Canyon is a popular ride, with some moderate climbing. Send me an email and I'll give you a phone number to call me for more ideas and descriptions.

Today I had a great ride in the Strawberry Narrows. It has been many years though since I have riding that many miles in the mtns. Sure makes me want to do more. I went with two friends that did a great job not making me feel about about how slow I was!!
