Anthony, I did the research for the Utah Cliffs Loop (many years ago!) I don't know of anyone who has ridden it "backwards," but I can't think of any reason not to do it that way. Let us know how it goes, okay? --Mac

Mbanzi, I did the research for this route ~15 years ago. It's very nice. I remember the dirt roads as not being very technical, and there not being much traffic on MOST of the route. You should be okay in mid-June, but still you should check with the Dixie National Forest to ask about snow (or no snow) conditions for the highest elevations. The descent from Navajo Lake down the North Fork Road is unforgettable! --MM

As mentioned in the first Bike Bits e-newsletter of the year, an Arizona man claims to have ridden the "longest, most grueling mountain bike route in the United States" last summer, a trail he has dubbed the Western States Mountain Bike Route. Nearly half of Erik Schlimmer's 2,720-mile ride took place on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. At Pinedale, Wyoming, he left the Great Divide and rode across the Wyoming Range into Idaho. Then, to get to the Mexico border--in addition to picking his own way at times--he followed three additional existing routes: the Shoshone Trail, the Great Western Trail, and the Arizona Trail. Do you think it's fair game to link together parts of existing routes that others have researched and mapped, and then give it a new name?
