40.40 miles North past California Ave & back.  The first 20 were awesome.  The 20 miles back (against the stiff winds) were BRUTAL!

WOW...what a Ride!  51.64 biking miles, a virtual "tour of Salt Lake County".

I started out going North on the MountainView Corridor trail until it terminated at California Ave.  Then I rode North on 5600 West, across I-80.  I saw another rider going East on Amelia Earhart drive that looked like he knew where he was going, so I followed him and caught up.  He was heading back to the "Avenue's" area and asked if I knew about the bike path THROUGH the airport.....which I did not!

You have to open a couple of doors (5) but you get to cut completely across the airport and end up on N. Temple.  He recommended that instead of just turning around when I hit 25 miles that I travel back on the Jordan River Parkway.

What a great suggestion!  There were a couple "sketchy" areas at first, but the rest of the way was great.  I rode that all the way down to 7800 South.  Then I went west until the Old Bingham Highway and worked my way back home.
