Day 49/20 to Panguitch, UT

94 freaking miles.  This is the sixth day in a row of riding and it feels like it.  

Another day of nearly 6000 feet of elevation gains but so beautiful and so worth it.

A few highs:

  • We rode Hog’s Back right out of the gate. This is a road with a cliff on each side that drops at least 1000 feet down.  Talk about a rush!
  • Red Canyon – on the outskirts of Bryce Canyon is a bike path that parallels Hwy 12, which we’ve spent the last few days on.  All downhill, fast and full of beautiful scenery.
  • Rain – we had clouds and rain this moring which kept us cool during our long climbs 
  • Grand Staircase -the top of rest stop two!  

Utah is a crazy place.  So much beauty but the scenery changes so much even in the course of one day.
I’m amazed at how much ground we can cover in one day with very little complaining (if any at all) from the team.

Today….  58 miles to Cedar City and a rest day tomorrow!
