This north valley loop links Salt Lake City with North Salt Lake on a tour of striking “diversity.” The bulk of the loop follows busy city streets and highways where the shoulder is absent and high-speed traffic is moderate to heavy. You’ll cruise past industrial complexes, gravel pits, airports, and oil refineries. And there is nary a hill to speak of. So why bother? Despite these blights of civilization, the first and last legs of the loop follow bike lanes through quaint ethnic neighborhoods and across open spaces where cattle graze. The miles are respectable, you can spin at a good tempo the whole way, and the last mile on the Jordan River Parkway is a pleasant way to wind down.
