So our local mountain bike race season starts in about a month down in St George, Utah. Up here in northern Utah, we are pretty much snowed in everywhere. Many of the mountain top climbs are still accessible though as they are groomed for cross country skiers, and are perfect for winter cycling. This is Alpine Scenic Loop with Mount Timponogas in the background. It is a 2000 ft climb to the summit if you start at Sundance Ski Resort. Great training hill for the upcoming season.
