Itinerary description

Scenic peaceful ride with great views of the city and mountains
Starting just one mile below Legends / Scheels shopping center at intersection of Sparks Blvd and Greg St. Big bridge across the river, level bike path through alfalfa fields and wetlands. Lots of separation from the highway. Good job, RTC! about 5.5 miles each way.
