UtCX #4 at Big Cottonwood Park!
Thick grass, hairpin turns, carving turns around trees. Done under sunny blue skies, with warmer-than-normal fall temperatures making it pleasant.  Race report...    October 2014.

Beautiful weather for CX #2 at Weber!
Hard-pack riding in beautiful fall sunshine. Time trial type sprinting instead of tricky slippery tech riding. What a difference from lat week's race!  Race report...    October 2014.

Muddy slippery Cyclocross Fun!
The first race of the 2014 UtCX season was greated by torrential rains. The slippery grass and steep little hills made this a brutally FUN race.  Race report...    September 2014.


UMB Team results from the Draper Fall Classic!
The 2014 Draper Fall Classic race saw perfect weather on great trails. Here's the report from the team members.  As usual, the race was well-run with great swag.  Race report...    September 2014.

Herriman Trails
Here's the info on the loop off Juniper Crest, the Firebreak Trail, and the ridge route at Blackridge Pond. As fall arrives, you'll appreciate more options for low-altitude riding.   Trail report...   August 2014.

North Ogden Divide to Willard
Here's a 12.5-mile route along the west edge of Ben Lomond Peak, with the Pleasant View section of the Bonneville Shoreline in the south and narrow singletrack clinging to the rugged mountainside for 7 miles in the north.   Trail report...   August 2014.

Snowbird's new Big Mountain Trail
Descend from Hidden Peak at 11,000 feet down to the base at 8000 feet over 7.5 miles of singletrack. Snowbird's new trail has had a few rainy weeks for the surface to pack down. If you've been wondering whether it's worth the tram fee (or getting up early in the morning while the trail is still two-way), here's Bruce's report.   Trail report...   August 2014.

Eagle Point trails, top of Beaver Canyon
At over 10,000 feet elevation, these trails are nicely cool on a summer's day. They're well-built and fun. There aren't a lot of miles at this time, but it's worth a side trip as you pass through Beaver on Interstate 15. Or just enjoy camping in the area and hit the trails for a couple of hours.  Trail report...    August 2014.

Utah Off Road Series, race 2 at Nordic Valley!
Great racing at Nordic Valley on Saturday August 9, as some brand-new trail greeted the Cat 1 racers. It's a fun course! Help support our developing racers by supporting this USAC-affiliated series.  Pencil in August 30 for the 3rd race of the series.  Race report...    August 2014.

New trails in the Hurricane Rim system:  Cryptobionic and Goosebumps!
These trails offer new variations on your favorite JEM rides. Alternate downhills for the big Hurricane Loop, or nice fun figure-eights from the Virgin trailhead. Finished in spring 2014, they're ready for you to explore.   Trail report...    August 2014.

ICup season finale at Solitude!
The Chris Allaire XC race at Solitude Resort was the final event of the 2014 season. The UMB race team scored a lot of wins at this event for a fine finish to the year.   Race report...    July 2014.

New singletrack on upper Ridge 157!  No more rock-slide surfing...
For the last 10 years, I've always done the Ridge from the north -- riding up to Pole Line Pass, then heading south toward the Alpine Loop summit. Now there's 2.7 miles of nice singletrack bypassing that "1000-vertical in 1 mile" north of Mill Canyon. South-to-North is now a fun option!  It's going to open up a whole bunch of riding possiblities for you.   All-new Ridge Trail page...    June 2014.

Miner's Loop!  More great riding in Klondike Bluffs.
Miner's Loop forks off the southern end of the awesome EKG Trail in the Klondike Bluffs riding area north of Moab. Just finished a couple of weeks ago, it adds a new flavor to the many riding options here. You'll want to add this trail to your Moab plans.  Trail report...    May 2014.

Chilkoot Pass. Final piece on the west side of Klondike Bluffs.
This little lariat loop is the most boring bit of trail in all of Moab. Very easy beginner riding and nothing pretty to look at. But it completes a north-south route on the west side of Klondike, extending all the way up to a small parking area on the Dinosaur Tracks road. So you should know about it.   Trail report...    May 2014.

Colorado River paved bike path is open!
This very expensive path hangs out over the water as it separates bikes from cars on State Route 128 along the Colorado. Bike back from Porcupine Rim without dodging traffic. Or just go for a pleasant ride. I've added information on this trail (and the new Moab Trail Hub) to the Old 191 page.  Moab Canyon Pathway (Old 191) report...    Page updated May 2014.

All-new Potato Hill page includes the new Red Potato Trail.
It's amazing how many new opportunities open up with a small addition. The 0.7 miles of Red Potato really changes how you'll attack the eastern side of Draper's Corner Canyon.   Trail report...    May 2014.
