This book is a picture story of the Chain Gang's bicycle journey through the national parks of Utah. Starting in Moab, Utah we bicycled to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks then drove to Torrey, Utah. After bicycling Capitol Reef National Park and its Scenic Drive we rode our bicycles on Utah12 over to Boulder and then rode the Burr Trail, a most fantastic ride. Then onto Tropic and Bryce Canyon via the beautiful 'Journey Through Time' route from Boulder to Tropic, including Hells Backbone. After Bryce Canyon we cycled to Mt. Carmel Junction where we then drove to Zion National Park and cycled the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. We completed our trip with a drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
40,000 miles on my LiteSpeed frame since 2003 when I started cycling and when I retired. I direct the Chain Gang bike club--we ride weekly plus some weekend rides and a few special rides such as our planned 'Ride Utah' autumn of 2010. I live in Georgia but have bicycled in all but five states.
