Global Fat Bike Day 2016

It was pretty low key this year, just three of us out riding, Bullet, myself and Arden. There were some organized rides and parties up North, but we would rather just ride than socialize. We went back up to Pine Hollow expecting more snow (from two storms last week), and nicely packed trails. It was […]

Global Fatbike Day Ride—2015

We headed up to Pine Hollow up American Fork Canyon for a Global Fatbike Day ride, along with about 40 other riders. There are some great singletrack trails up there that have been packed out and ridden and they were in great shape on Saturday. There were probably 30 people in the parking lot at […]

White Friday—Riding the Mirror Lake Highway

Wednesday night Bullet and I went up to Round Valley in Park City and did a wonderful night ride in the snow. It was our first snow ride of the season. Conditions were excellent with 2 inches of powder over the dirt trails. It was cold but a great ride and we covered 9 miles. While […]

December Randonnee Report—Soapstone Basin

I had read about this area in an off-roading guidebook to Utah.  It described a 14 mile forest service road between Levan and Wales crossing the San Pitch Mountain Range. With several side […]

Good-bye snow, hello dirt

Todays ride had a little bit of everything—snow, mud, dirt, asphalt, gravel, grass, rocks, fisherman’s trail, and a railroad, 3,300 feet 0f climbing, 5,000 of descending and section of 17% grade climbing. It was a reminder that Winter is fading and Spring is here. I wanted to get one last long snow ride in before […]

The Perfect Snow

Today Bullet and I rode the perfect groomed snow. In fact, it was the first time this season we have ridden on a real groomed trail with that nice, firm grooved surface. Last week I rode very difficult, sloppy, wet, deep snow, and this week was the exact opposite. It was firm, fast, and so […]
