road bike alpine loop

The Alpine loop is now clear of snow; hopefully, it'll be clear of cars also. This lovely ride climbs American Fork Canyon and descends past Sundance. After about a mile on the Provo Canyon highway, we'll hop onto bike trails and continue through Orem to Pleasant Grove. The Pleasant Grove start gives us a few miles to warm up prior to the long climb. The only services are at Timpanogas Cave and Sundance, so bring enough food and water and warm clothes for the ride down. Note: the descent can be fast and furious so be prepared.
