Last night I got on Mountain View Corridor and rode to Herriman and back. 30 miles, 1400' total elevation. I thought I was kicking ass until I turned around at 12000 S or so and discovered that I'd had a significant tailwind the whole time. The ride back was not as fast.

Back in my younger days I rode the Bay to Bay century on a road bike. Chesapeake bay to the Delaware bay and back. I averaged 26 mph on flat ground on the way out and 8 mph on the way back. Headwind was so strong I did the entire return trip on my third chainring (touring bike).

So I was training a canyon guy at little valley last night and the Draper park ranger rolled up to have a chat. Long story short he had an ebike with him and let me go rip it up the trail. While I would feel like cheating most of the time, that thing was rad.

So what's the deal with him? I hear that he's a jerk and writes tickets for stuff he didn't actually see riders do.

Not sure, he's a Draper police officer, just has a title of park ranger. Pretty much my job but in Draper. He seemed like a nice guy. From what I gathered he likes to harass people about dogs more the people on bikes.

Spent some time out at the Eagle Bike Park this morning. There's some nice climbs, downhill flows, a skills section, jump loop and some rather large drops. Whenever you guys make it up this way I'll take you out there.

I'll be at Eagle Mountain in the morning if anyone wants to meet up.

And Eric and I are riding Strawberry Narrows this Sunday. 18 miles out and back, shaded almost the whole route, moderate climbing, practically zero tech but very flowy in sections. Come play.

Spent some time this weekend riding old logging/mining roads near Centerville, Id (43.909073, -115.897873). There's miles and miles of two track, climbs, downhills and flats.

Did this happen? Or did the Dollar Ridge Fire cancel those plans?

Nice. Eric and I were saying that we're ready for a weekend of riding and fishing and hammocking, not in that order. You stake out a spot yet?

Didn't see any sign of a fire, where's Dollar Ridge?

It's burning 4.5 miles SE of Strawberry Reservoir. I guess you were just West of Strawberry so it wouldn't have affected your ride...surprised you didn't at lease see the smoke, though.

We could check out Deadwood Reservoir (44.312552, -115.658941). I haven't been up that far yet.

Sunday ride, anyone? I see some trails at Magic Mountain in SW IDaho that are pretty much halfway between Salt Lake City and Boise. And the forecast says high of 85*...

That was my idea, but the wife might have other plans. I might have to stay closer to SLC.

So that was a kick in the pants. After we rode the normal Ramble On to Rambler loop, including Eric's favorite, Collarbone Hill, Josh and Nick vamoosed to the parking lot because sleep or something, and Ian and I rode Round Valley Express to Cammie's to La De Duh to Tinman to Happy Gilmour and then back to the Highland Dr trailhead. Easily the most fun I've had in Round Valley yet.

Round Valley Express - the section we rode is old doubletrack. Mild climbing. No shade.
Cammie's - The short section we rode was legit. Steep and chunky, even on the 29s I had to pick a line and stay off the front brake. Much fun.
La De Duh - mostly flat, some rolling up and down, all chunk. Big chunk. A couple spots to pick a line, but most of it just called for monster trucking right over it.
Tinman - this trail from top to bottom is a HOOT. Long with a moderate rate of descent, mostly buff and flowy with some rocky portions to spice it up. about half banked turns and half flat corners to keep you on your toes.
Happy Gilmore - the section we rode was also legit flow, nice and swoopy and fast.
