backside friday road bike ride - June 17, 2011

For this Friday backside ride we will go to the snowline on the Mirror Lake Highway. The road over Bald Mountain Pass (the upper part of the Mirror Lake Highway) is closed to automotive traffic in the winter. We'll take advantage of this road closure to ride as high as possible sans traffic until stopped by the snowline. It's unknown how far we'll be able to ride; however, if we can ride to the Trial Lake turnoff, plan on a round trip ride of about 50 miles and 3200 feet of climbing. Bring energy foods for the climb up the highway.
