road bike - alpine loop

Experience the beauty of Mt. Timpanogos, Sundance, Provo Canyon and Murdock Canal Trail on the iconic Alpine Loop. You will feel sufficiently challenged with 3800 feet of climbing and descending on the narrow roads with lots of tight turns. Wear high visibility clothing and put a headlight and tail light on your bike so sightseeing drivers will see you! We'll stop at Timpanogos Cave Visitor Center (8 miles into the ride) for a rest stop, if necessary, at the top of Alpine Loop and Vivian Park. Bring snacks and water. Perhaps a visit to the Purple Turtle after the ride for one of their amazing shakes, sweet potato fries or ???
