Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Hwy 12 Boulder to Escalante, UT
Have I found a superb 33+ mile bike route through Calf Creek Canyon. Driving East to West gives an extraordinary vista of wind carved sandstone. It's above 80 degrees right now (2:30pm Mountain Time) but with an early morning start and an overnight at either end, this is a marvellous find for a cyclist. Perhaps in Spring? It might be chilly. I drove over a 9,600 foot aspen clad pass to get to Boulder from Torrey, but I love finding juicy things like this.
