Panguitch Bicycle Trip - June 22, 2008
This was a very ambitious trip, with a lot of climbing. It seemed something we could do, but I made a serious flaw in my planning. I paid attention only to the elevation-A to elevation-B numbers, which showed a manageable amount of vertical ascent.
As it turned out, the climbs were easily twice that amount, due to the up-and-down nature fo the road, where you climb up, then glide down, then re-climb what you just climbed.
That being said, here is the route we planned:
MapQuest Map of our Proposed Trip
We started out with great confidence and expectations. As it turned out, we made it only to Koosharem (marked "C" on the map). We could possibly have made it to Torrey (marked "D" on the map), but we did not have the conditioning to make it to stop "E" (Boulder), and we would have had to climb out of a deep hole to return.
Here are the pictures and narrative for each day of the bicycle trip:Day 1
