road bike: hobble creek

This 56 mile event consists of a 41 mile out and back ride up scenic Hobble Creek Canyon south of Provo, and following lunch at a Provo cafe, a 15 mile loop around Provo. Hobble Creek is a picturesque twisting Wasatch Front canyon which we'll ride from Provo to the end of the pavement up the right fork (or until stopped by snow on the road), part of which features smooth rolling new pavement, a parallel paved bike path part way, and 1120 feet of climbing. Bring energy foods for this part of the ride. We'll roll back to Provo for lunch at a cafe, and then do a 15 mile tour of downtown Provo. The Provo tour showcases 4.5 miles of the Utah County's gorgeous tree-lined Provo River Parkway, darts across BYU, and includes stops for ice cream and coffee. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) at the 7200 South I-15 Park & Ride at 8:00AM to carpool-caravan or in Provo at UTA's Provo Station, 750 South 200 West, at 9:00AM. This ride has the option of taking UTA's FrontRunner to and from Provo; if this option is of interest check www.rideuta.com for train schedules on Saturday so as to arrive in Provo in time for a 9am ride.
