Best Riding of the Year

Hey everyone!
I spent the early part of the week losing a battle with a cold, but now I'm back on my two-wheeled horse and getting some miles in. It's a good thing too, because it would be a shame to miss the best riding of the year. I mean just look at the trees!

These were taken on the alpine loop last Saturday as a couple of the boys from BYU and I managed the 4,000ft climb to the top. The gorgeous temperature and the prospect of a new vista at every switchback made the grade a worthwhile challenge.
This week we took a slightly less steep route up Hobble Creek Canyon, and I would have to say the views may have been even more stunning:

Now may be the best riding of the year. The air is cool but not cold, and the views are amazing. Please please please just go and ride! Better yet. Come ride with us--we meet at Jdawgs every Saturday morning at 9:30am. Check up on the BYU Cycling Team's Facebook page for updates.
