MONUMENT VALLEY RIDE - 20 AUGUST 2014
Here's a little video of me and my ride around Monument Valley. Im on my Salsa Fargo which has relatively skinny tires. My other bike, a fat bike, would been much better suited for some sections on the route. There was quite a bit of sand which I talk about during this video.
I had no real idea how this ride would go. Except for the paved road parts, I went very easy to avoid getting too tired and being in over my head strength wise towards the end of the route. The loop starts with a big 500 ft descent into the valley which means there's a 500 ft climb out of the valley at the end. Overall, the pace I took was great meaning I enjoyed the ride and didn't over exert myself. And, I got to see a lot of the amazing terrain at sunrise to boot.
I'll have to try this again some time but with my fat bike. That will be a lot of fun.
