I've lived in Utah almost all of my life, but I've only been past Bear Lake a couple of times, and never spent any time up there, so I was excited to ride somewhere I've never been before.
It's July, the Tour de France is on, and I'm riding in Paris!!! (well, Paris, Idaho...)
I know I posted a pic of the "mountain cows" over the weekend, but they were so much fun!
Greg and me at the top of the Minnetonka cave climb.
riding towards North Beach
on the east side of Bear lake.
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe...
...and we're done. 100 miles
What would you expect to get at the finish of a ride called the "Monster"?
back to the hotel, and... crash!
next morning. Vive le Tour!
You can't go to Bear Lake without having a raspberry shake (at least that is what the wife was telling me). No non-dairy versions unfortunately, so none for me. This was only one of 2 places open on Sunday, hence the line.
Maybe I'll rent one of these to ride in next year's Bear Lake Monster...
We came home to a freak downpour that completely overwhelmed the storm drains. Several houses were flooded in our neighborhood. We fortunately didn't have too much water in our basement, Greg didn't fare as well.
This ride is definitely among my favorite rides now. I'll be back next year!
