road bike: monte cristo to snowline

This is an out and back ride from Huntsville up the Monte Cristo highway to the snowline. We'll ride this scenic road as high as possible until stopped by snow on the road. This road is similar to the Mirror Lake Highway and upper Millcreek in that its upper section is closed in the winter to automotive traffic and so we'll ride this vehicle-free roadway as far as we can. It is unknown how high on the mountain we can ride, but riders should plan on a ride of at least 36 miles RT and 2300 feet of climbing over 18 miles. We'll adjourn to the Shooting Star after the ride for lunch. Meet Elliott (801) 969-2846 in the parking lot located on the NE corner of the state capital building at 8am to carpool/caravan, or on the north side of Huntsville Park, 7450 East 200 South, in Huntsville at 9:15am.
