(What happened to Tom's PR post? I was going to add something...)
Anyway, we were down in Utah a funeral, but Jenny and I took our cross bikes (best to be prepared for anything.) I had on the hutchinson piranha, so that's a pretty good tire for the road. We headed north from Mom's and ended up at American Fork Canyon. Beautiful ride. I've heard of the 'Alpine Loop', and I want to go back. The top was closed to cars, it was perfect! Jen rode about 1/2 way, and then let me slog to the top alone. I didn't actually do the loop (wanted to make sure Jen wasn't stuck on the side of the road with a mechanical, plus I wasn't sure where it would end up), but I definately plan to head back. Probably one of the most enjoyable climbs I've been on.
