Well, we are certainly in the dog days of Summer in the Valley right now.
Not too much going on in the motorcycle world around here right
now, but I’m sure the heat has something to do with that. I know I’m not too
excited about hopping on the bike and going joy riding in 108 degree heat. But
what I am doing is looking outside the “hot” box for someplace else to ride. And
there is no better time to start day dreaming your rides than right now.
In my opinion, one of the best things ever invented on a smart phone was
the Google Maps app. Now I can plot new routes anywhere, and talk
to people about roads that we have ridden right from the palm of my hand. The
technology just keeps getting better and easier come up with a plan. It is
August 1st already and the Summer is slipping away from us, so if you are
looking for some ride ideas, I have a couple for you.
A good idea for a hustling 3 day ride or a leisurely 4 day ride would be
one that we did a few years ago that I called the Four Canyon Tour.
You really have to hustle to get this done in 3 days, but it can be done. It is
a fantastic ride for you road warriors that like to get out, lay down some miles
and see some pretty scenery. Four days for those that would like the same
scenery in a more leisurely ride. Click Here for Part 1 that links to Part 2 at the bottom.
Another fantastic ride which also happens to have an All American Highway
designation, is the Utah National
Scenic Byway 12
ride. See Part 2 at bottom of the link. This
one will take you about 3.5 days. We actually went to Flagstaff for the night in
the late afternoon to get a jump on things. The rest of it you can do in 3
hustling days for a long weekend, like the upcoming Labor Day holiday. The
reason I am giving you a couple of these ideas is that if you are going to do a
ride around Labor Day, you should probably be getting some motel reservations as
both of these routes are in areas that don't have a lot of rooms available, so
you will have to plan ahead a little bit.
Check out both of these rides I mentioned above, you would not
be disappointed in either one of them. I am really ready to get out of this heat
and start putting on some miles and generating
Those of you going to Sturgis, RIDE SAFE and have a good time.
