We had planned a ride for today however with yesterday’s extreme weather we weren’t sure if it would happen. We woke up to clear skies at 30 degrees. That was good because it wasn’t snowing or raining. We waited around until 9am and by then it was 40’ish and we figured we’d go ahead and give it a go.
We are staying in Tropic, UT. It’s on Hwy 12 ….you know the scenic byway of Utah. We had to ride….right? We decided to ride to Kodachrome and back. It would be a 25’ish ride (was 28). We even drove it yesterday to see if it was going to have any killer hill surprises. We decided, in the car, it was fine going to be a mostly flat with some rollers. Jack says this is why you never get road advise from someone in a car.
Most of the ride down seemed down and we did go from 6259ft to about 5300ft at lunch. We ended the day with 1318 elevation gain and most of that was on the return trip….and as luck would have it “into a head wind”. We had cross winds for awhile but soon they were …you guessed it. Head Winds.
Well that’s all folks. Back to Seaside tomorrow……all packed up and ready to go.
