Tuesday (today) was supposed to get up to 88 degrees (and it did), and we wanted to ride the same bike path we rode Monday north into downtown Salt Lake City. It appeared to be around 15 miles each way on the Google map, but it wasn't. At any rate, on Tuesday morning I got up and washed the trailer (still have to wash the coach) before it got warm, and then Elaine and I took off around 9:30am heading north (downhill with the wind) up to the city. The bike path was great all the way, however, they could put a few more signs to tell you which way to turn. I say this, because we took a "few" wrong turns going and coming due to the lack of signage.
We arrived in downtown Salt Lake around 11:30am after 21 miles, and headed for Squatter's Pub and Beers for lunch. We really enjoyed their food on Sunday when we had an early dinner there. I didn't eat breakfast (still full from dinner the night before), so I was famished. We sat out on the back patio drinking lots of water, and, for me, eating Fish and Chips. I was tempted to have a draft beer, but I listened, for a change, to the little voice in my head warning me against such foolishness.
Around 1pm we started our ride home.....uphill, and into the wind. It was starting to get warm when we hit the half way mark home. Below is a picture of the Lovely Elaine taking a break....it's not as bad as it looks there, but it did get worse later as it got hotter. Fortunately we had taken 6 water bottles with us so water was not an issue. We arrive home around 3pm having ridden 42 miles! Wow, since we have gotten to Utah we have put 75 miles on our bikes.....good for us!
