Our last ride at Stansbury was a great success.

Now we're planning a ride this Saturday at Hobble Creek. Post here if you're coming... here are the directions and ride details:

Take the UT-77 exit, exit number 263 off I-15 towards MAPLETON/SPRINGVILLE

Turn LEFT onto W 400 S/ W 3900 S/ UT-77

Turn RIGHT onto S 400 E

Turn LEFT onto E 800 S (E 800 S becomes E 900 S)

Turn RIGHT onto S 1200 E


Don't turn into Hobble Creek Golf Course go past it and stay to the right when the road forks

You are looking for Kirkman Hollow (meet you there)

Ride details
1. 8:00am riders meet and leave Kirkman Hollow
2. We will leave going Southeast up to the top of the ridge

How technical is the ride? I may bring the boy along and some of his friends.

Bill - this is the ride the UTMA did earlier in the year. They listed it as "Intermediate". I think if they're comfortable riding in the woods they'll be fine.

Doug -
How is your leg? Did you get the smell out of your helmet :)? Hope you can make it.

BTW thanks for the indictment on the Dumb Crashes thread. I had to defend myself after I saw that :). As for the smell it's still there. My leg is slowly getting better. I think I actually sprained my ankle pretty good. The swelling hasn't gone down yet and there is virtually no lateral movement. I'll live though. I had to miss my hockey game this week because I couldn't get it into my skate. I haven't missed one of those for years. The funny thing is I haven't had this many cuts, dings, & bruises in the last 8 years of riding combined (8 years ago is when sanity kicked in). And this was just one ride. Hopefully I'll be back in form next time.

P.S.--I won't be able to make Hobble Creek tomorrow. Another family reunion that I had forgotten about.
