Planning stages for August/September 2020

Has anybody taken the bypass (to avoid Salt Lake City) from Ogden to Provo UT? Specifically I-84 and then 189 southbound, I-15 can be such a terrible traffic snarl. Want to get the missus to Bryce Canyon but hate the thought of SLC traffic. Have a major trip in the works so want to give herself the nicest possible routing with the least amount of ugly roads.

Did t do that on our Alaska ride . I needed Nevada so we came to SLC on i80 and cut thru some secondary roads to Provo. Didnít go to Bryce Canyon but do have a recommendation for US 6 out of Provo if you have a chance. Great road to Colorado.

Just playing with Google Maps, I come up with this;

But I've not been on this route. Maybe someone else has. But looking at routing with Google is how I come up with some interesting roads.

Interesting and thanks Mark. I had I-15 stuck in my head to the Utah border since I've always gone that route. Need to open my mind some more I think. Gives me a good starting place for sure.

Or come to the western side of Utah and we meet in Wendover at the Speedway, then work our way to Bryce.

I'm in Utah and the route Mark outlined is a good one! I've personally rode this route from Evanston Wy. To Provo Utah. You won't see much traffic at all! The construction from SLC to Provo on 15 is nasty! You don't want any thing to do with it. Even though your trip is a ways off construction on Utah roads is very slow. Hit me up when you come through I'll see about a day off and ride with ya for a bit! Some nice high-speed curves from Evanston to Kimball junction. If you're interested!

There you go. I'll mark this down as an "even a blind hog finds an acorn now and then" moment.

So I've been busy printing route maps and possibles, checking hotels and overnight stops. She keeps saying it's too early to plan much because of my future knee surgery. Yeesh. like my knee is going to be worse than it is now...
Plan is slowly formulating and coming together. Just need an more solid outline and then I can really get down to business. Have to try and mix in work schedules. Denis will be getting his other knee replacement done somewhere down the road so that could become a timing issue but hopefully not.
