road bike: frontside friday: big mountain (with little mountain option)

We'll ride from the I-80 East Canyon exit to Big Mountain Pass and return. This will be a very low traffic ride: the gate at Little Dell is still closed (but the road is open all the way to the top). Short ride, but the climbing is plenty challenging. You can get a good workout in a hurry. And if you want more, you can always ride up Little Mountain on the way back. That adds about 3 miles and another 250 feet of elevation gain. This is a social ride. Ride at your own pace, but we'll stop to catch our breath a few times along the way and to socialize at the top. This is a good ride for anyone: you can ride at whatever pace you want and turn around whenever you want.
