road bike: huntsville to monte cristo
We'll start at the town park in Huntsville and ride up, up, up the canyon to Monte Cristo. We get to climb from about 4900' to a little over 9000. Two nice things: it is flat on top, so we'll get a little break the last couple of miles; it is an out & back ride, so you can turn around anytime you want. Oh, yeah, it is gorgeous up top, too. Two more nice things: the little shop at the Monastery will be open, so we can stop on the way back to buy some of the famous and delicious flavored honey from the Monks there; after we get back, we can stop in for a famous and delicious Star Burger at the Shooting Star Saloon, the oldest bar in Utah, in operation since 1879. This will be a social ride; we'll stop to regroup several times along the way. Due to the climbing, we may split into compatible sub-groups on the way up. Please call or check your email if the weather looks iffy.
