    Utahan Looking For Advice

    Hi, I'm living in Utah and I'll be down in the valley next week and am looking to do some riding while there. I'm actually from AZ, so I know the trails pretty well, but I'm out of touch on the weather down there. What time do I need to start riding in the morning if I want to do a Mormon-National loop? I don't want to burn up in the sun, but I don't want to get up earlier than I have to. Any advice would be nice.

    Oh, and if there are any good group rides going on I'd be interested in trying those out too. Thanks!

    6am is a good time to start, that gets you a couple hours before the sun really starts to hit hard. Much earlier and it's too dark, any later and you don't have much time to ride.

    It's starting to look more like a 6:30 start time these days unless you like riding in the dark.

    It starts getting light enough to see around 5:45, and the sunrise will be around 6:10-6:15 next week. FIP at 6:00 is perfect right now.

    Well that's not bad, seeing as we're an hour ahead of you anyway, that's not terribly early. Thanks for the tips!

    I would take advantage of the time change that will be coming again shortly. you'll be safe around 6, so set that alarm clock to 5:30 and get out the show on the road! haha!
