There 's a definite feel of spring in the air today. The sky is clear, the south-facing slopes of the mountains are bare and I've even seen a few people in shorts and flip-flops, though that's rushing things just a tad.

It's time to start thinking about cycling, especially with the Tour of California going on this week. I spent some time the other day surfing the net for bicycle rides this summer, and found quite a few potential ones. I'd like to be up to at least a 60-75 mile ride by the end of the summer. There are several around the valley and in the Heber Valley, beginning with the Salt Lake Marathon ride in April and ending in September. Of course, last week was the St. George Century and next month is the Skinny Tire Festival in Moab. But the weather hasn't quite been good enough to get outside much yet.
