road bike, lehi-alpine dry creek canyon loop

18 mile loop starting in Lehi Smith's Marketplace parking lot, in front of the O'Reillys Auto Parts. While this ride starts in Lehi, we immediately enter neighborhoods of Alpine which was named by early settlers because it reminded them of Switzerland. Gentle inclines past million dollar horse property, cow pastures, apple and peach orchards, then heading up Dry Creek Canyon with stunning views of the Wasatch mountains. The last 1/4 mile up Dry Creek Canyon hits 10% grades for a good workout, stopping at a horse trailhead. A quick ride down Alpine around Lone Peak High School, Highland Glen Park, and back to the start point via the Murdock Canal Bicycle Trail. There is minimal car traffic, good shoulders, and nice pavement on this route. Meet at 11:30 a.m. so we can depart promptly at 11:45 Noon, as the ride leader will be on work lunch break. Regrouping at major route turns. Pace will be moderate with a 13 MPH average speed. Contact Matt Davidson @ davidson801@comcast.net or cell 801-706-0608
