2011 Ride #11 (Up Emi, Down Parley’s)

View Larger Map

Up Emigration Canyon, down Parley’s Canyon on I-80. Remembered why I don’t do the down Parley’s part more often. It’s not because of the road conditions or traffic on the freeway, it’s the up-canyon winds. Although it is a royal pain in the ass to get back off the freeway, that’s nothing compared to the wind.

Almost managed to beat the storm home, too … didn’t get dumped on until the last 1/2 mile. That’s what I call a good ride.

Ominous view from atop Little Mountain ...
