Loosen up your winter-creaky bones with a trip around Sentinel and University Mountains. Meet at the south end of the Van Buren Street bridge and ride at a slow pace (or wait for me!) to the Pattee Canyon picnic area (paved uphill) for a bring-your-own snack. Finish the loop on the Deer Creek Road (gravel downhill) and Kim Williams trail (gravel).
