Millville Canyon

Satan’s flies live here

Woke up early (for me) determined to make the climb up Millville Canyon. My goal was to turn around before the really steep bit but when I reached that bit my soul felt drawn to new elevations and the Ripmo and I continued climbing. During rides past, at my usual turn around spot I had observed a new trail. Today I determined to explore it.

The Bridges of Millville Canyon

One of my favorite rides and probably one of the hardest. Millville is all up for the entire ride. It’s also beautiful and super fun. If you want to indulge prepare your legs for the burn. Alas, all is not always well. The first 4 miles of this ride Devin joined my on the shoreline trail to try his hand at taming the Bianchi on

The Friday Morning Commute is a Beast

Woke up with a desire to ride something different. Millville canyon isn’t far, is beautiful, has low traffic and I’ve only ridden it once. It has plenty of climbing and I would need to ride the Bonneville Shoreline trail to connect to it but I figured if I had time I’d also make a quick run up Providence. There’s a sign at the mouth of

I Need Some Vitamin E

I had heard rumors of new dirt and I had seen the Strava evidence. Undeterred by the E-bike labels I determined to make a loop up Providence and then take a slight detour to check out the fabled new route with my own eyes. An hour later, my legs crying for mercy, I discovered This is brand new dirt. Like you can see the shovel
