Description: This ride starts southbound on 700 east. It cuts over to 300 east and then to the frontage road, working its way to the point of the mountain. Then it heads north east on highland and north on 1300 east. At 12300 South it cuts behind the hill to 1700 east and 11650 south which is the southern end of Wasatch blvd. Stay northbound on Wasatch to the pedestrian bridge over I-80 which connects to Foothill. Cut through the University and eventually head back south.
Comments: The Salt Lake valley is a great place. Riding around it offers great views and a sense of accomplishment. This ride has lots of variety.

See the whole valley in one ride. Lots of climbs and rollers here. Everybody needs to do this at least once.
