road bike: mirror lake highway
This is a ride to the snowline up 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, and if we can ride to Bald Mountain Pass, plan on a round trip ride of about 58 miles and 4200 feet of climbing. Bring energy foods for the climb up the highway. There will be a post-ride option of rendezvousing in Kamas after the ride for lunch. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) at Kamas Park, 1st South 1st East, Kamas at 9:00am.
