The White Rim Trail - Canyonlands

I've never really loved riding a bike.  In fact, the few rides I've done this year have been mediocre at best.  With this bad of attitude I decided to join Andy, Tom, and Jason Prigge on the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands.  I had heard it was a classic ride but all I could picture in my mind was a white, dusty road full of vans providing support for over weight cyclists.  

I was wrong. Turns out riding a bike is fun and the White Rim Trail is as classic as everyone says.  It has poured the night before and the dirt road was perfect.  Add beautiful 65 degree temps and the day was magical.  We road fast which felt slightly uncomfortable but stopped frequently enough to allow my weak legs to recover.  Eight and a half hours after starting we were back at the car and psyched!  Without a doubt this was the best ride I've ever done.  Maybe I won't sell my bike...

  1. I can honestly say I never thought I'd see a post on your blog dedicated to a bike ride, especially one with a positive report. Awesome!
