City Creek Double Header
Wednesday I was scheduled to work a night shift at the office. Frankly, working at the office is getting a little depressing these days with a lot of rumors circulating about impending gloom, doom and layoffs.
So when my daughter begged me to let her babysit a couple of hours earlier than I expected her to — she’s desperate for $$ — I quickly agreed and loaded the bike in the minivan and headed for the hills.
Specifically, I headed for City Creek Canyon anticipating nice open roads during the early afternoon with shade and a little cooler temp along the way.
I had about two hours to ride and did the climb twice. Even though I’m a slow climber, I loved it. The solitude, the nature and the time spent on the bike were just what I needed to recharge the mental batteries and prepare for a long night at work.
Total numbers for the ride:
