road bike: butterfield canyon to snowline

This ride features a climb up scenic Butterfield Canyon, a seldom ridden gorge in the southwest corner of Salt Lake Valley. We'll ride this Oquirrh Mountain canyon's 6.8 mile length to its summit or until stopped by snow on the road, and then complete a short loop course. Participants should plan on climbing 3,300 feet over a 41 mile course, assuming we can ascend Butterfield Canyon to its summit. Riders need to bring energy foods as this ride has no formal lunch stop - but we can rendezvous for lunch/brunch/snacks after the ride if there is interest. Meet Elliott in the parking lot immediately north of West Jordan's community swimming pool located at 8120 South 2200 West, at 9:00am.
