We have an 8 day loop sketched out, riding the State of Utah clockwise. After a 800 mile truck/trailer program, we will start out in Brigham City Utah on this Friday. I will try to update our ride each night, and give a quick report on the varied terrain. The three riders expect to see everything from red rock canyons to wide open desert scape. The pilots are: Mike R. - Lead Dog and route professor. He has the group hitting some of the most spectacular tracks in Utah. Thanks again to many of the ADV riders before us who broke these trails. Lead Dog always keeps us on track, even when we are riding back home with our sons. Paul V. - Sweep and chief mechanic. Every rider needs to know their own bike, but it is cool to have a sharpshooter wrench on hand for unexpected repairs. Thanks in advance for all of your help Paul Marc M - Catastrophic Failure. I will take photos, mis-spell words, and buy the beer. . We are hoping for some classic fall weather, and some long runs through open spaces. Maybe some classic red rock canyons too. The three of us have ridden many thousands of ADV miles together, and with several other great riders! But it never gets old exploring fresh land and taking new corners every single day. Day One takes us away from Salt Lake City into the Wasatch Mountain Range. In 2013, 85% of Utah's population lives within 20 miles of the Wasatch Range, mainly in the valleys just to the west. Since the mountains top out just below 12,000 feet, the Wasatch peaks are not especially high compared to the Colorado Rockies. However, they are sculpted by glaciers, yielding notably rugged sweeping scenery comprable with other prominent ranges in North America. Route for Day 1, will cut into Wyoming for a few miles.
