So today I did the ride the other direction (read last blog). And finished with the climbs last. I actually liked it this way better because I got the west road over with sooner. I knew that road was going to be busy and I had 3 semi-trucks come within less then a foot of me.Seriously. And what makes it worse is that they have the whole other lane too go around. Those of you who have ridden that road knows what I am talking about. I think they should name that road- Asshole road. The truck drivers really don't care. And it's freakin' annoying. Ahhh that makes me feel better letting that out. You know what is really cool? Is that bike path up Provo Canyon. That is so much better than the canyon road. My ride took 30 minutes longer, cause I took Wasatch back. So a total of 8.5 hrs, 130 miles.

Started at 5:30am for a long day of riding. In prep for LOTOJA. I started from my house headed south to Suncrest. Climbed up Sucrest then down to American Fork. Up American Fork down Sundance then headed into Provo. crusied back through town and it brought me back at the base of American Fork. I headed back to Draper then shot out west to the Kennecot. Headed along the far west road to Magna. Then cruised by the RMR then home. It ended up being 8 hrs of riding. It was a fun ride. I really like riding up American Fork. I was suprised all day not one truck honked, gave me the finger or black smoked it.
