road bike: alpine loop

It's time to do the Alpine Loop in full color. As usual, we'll start near the Purple Turtle in Pleasant Grove and head up American Fork Canyon on the scenic byway. We'll pass Sundance on the way down and connect with Provo Canyon, where we'll ride a few miles on the wide shoulder before reaching Vivian Park. At the park, we'll connect with the bike path on the Provo River Parkway and cruise all the way into Orem. Now that the Murdock Canal trail is finished, it offers another option for getting through Orem and back to the Purple Turtle. Those wishing to indulge in a post-ride burger or shake will find the Purple Turtle a worthy refueling stop. NOTE: If you want to carpool from either side of the Wasatch, contact me and I'll try to pair you up. But I'm completely off the grid until Sunday evening so be patient.
