Riding the road is great but to keep you skills sharp you need to broaden your cycling experiences. Riding the MTB in Utah is perfect for that! Here are a few pics from my ride yesterday on a fun local loop, the Goulds Rim – JEM Trail – Hurricane Rim combo. It is a 21.5 mile mostly singletrack loop with lots of climbing. The pictures prove it was a perfect day to ride!
