I'm just wondering what trails in the SLC area you guys/gals ride for an active recovery session after a race or hard ride the day before.

I'm looking for something really smooth and relatively flat and "cruisable," with the former being more important. I was thinking pipeline but I'd like to go for something more doubletrack/fireroad for low impact. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

CW

If you find something, let me know...

Pipeline is okay, but crowded and hot...some sections of the BST would be mellow, but they are so short you would have to do laps...:rolleyes:

I like cruising up City Creek on my roadbike in the granny. If I am REALLY tired, I don't ride up the steeper pitches at the end.

If you don't have a roadbike, the only easy-ish trails I know of are in Park City...

Post up if you find something, I have asked around with no results.

I rode up the dirt road to albion basin at the top of LCC. It was okay going up but I didn't feel like just coasting down and had more energy than I thought, so I rode up over germania pass. I think this means I am not racing hard enough :D i guess i could try sport but i swear i'm not fast, i just don't get worn down too easily.
