OK, I realize that roughly .00001% of you actually live close enough to do this, but what’s the point of having a blog about bikes if I can’t ask people in the area to join me on a ride once in a while?
Yesterday, Kenny sent an email proposing that on New Year’s Day we all get together and do a fun ride:
Start the new year right. Come join us for a race/ride up the Squaw Peak road to the Look out parking lot. The ride starts at 10:00 a.m. on Monday the 1st. It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to climb to the top. Thanks to the snowmobiles packing down the road, we should have a nice hardpack to ride on. Weâ€™ll all regroup at the top and ride back down together to the cars.
Squaw Peak, for those of you who don’t know, is about a mile North up the Provo Canyon. It’s a four mile climb. In the Summer it’s a road climb, but during the winter it’s packed snow, powder, and ice. I’m planning on riding my singlespeed, with air pressure at about 18psi.
I’ll bring my new camcorder, too, and try to get some footage of people riding down for posting. It should be good for laffs-a-plenty.
As for today, the sun’s out, the sky’s clear, and I’m going on a group ride. Yay, no riding in the garage!
