Stucki Springs Southern Utah

Spring in southern Utah is such a beautiful thing. Rode Stucki Springs today. I realized that I need to ride a lot more. This is a moderate ride with a couple of tough uphills where you will probably have to walk your bike. The downhill is worth all the effort of the climb.

Located near the Bear Claw Poppy trail in the Santa Clara Preserve. Total ride is a little over 13 miles. With an elevation gain of 1300 ft. The Ride Starts at the parking lot at the end of the Bear Claw Poppy Trail. The first 4 miles of your ride stay to the  the left side of the trails that people will be coming down from Bear Claw Poppy. This is your warm up for the uphill. I stopped and did a good stretch at this point to prepare me for the the real climb.

Make sure you stop a couple of times to take in the view. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the RAW untouched southern Utah. When you reach the summit you will need to take a break, adjust your seat level and take one last drink. The next 2 to 3 miles is wicked fun downhill, a total blast of pure awesomeness. Not sure if that is a real word but it is the only way I can explain how fun it is.

The Clymb Heard Of It?

There is a new website in town that you need to check out.

The Clymbthe clymb

Member pricing on the planet’s most sought-after outdoor brands. Each week they work deals with some of the top name brands in outdoor sports. It is free to sign up and become a member. For every person that you refer you get a ten dollar credit on your account. You are wondering if there is a catch. Is it really that easy? Well Yea Its that easy. But yes of course there is a catch. You will receive the 10 dollar credit after your friend makes their 1st purchase.

The Clymb is a very easy and user friendly site. They are always rotating their offers, which incentives you to stop back regularly. It is a new spin on concept of Limited Quantity! They have a timer that shows time left on a specific offer. For example at the time of this writing they were featuring Dakine Bags and MIIR Bottles.

Special Deals By The Clymb

Part of the Clymb is to give back to the planet. They will always have some deal that is connected to a group or organization that is helping the planet in some way. For example MIIR Bottles. Nearly a billion people struggle to survive everyday because they don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. Now there’s an easy way for you to help. Simply purchase a bottle; The Clymb and Miir will take care of the rest. MiiR and The Clymb have teamed up to donate $2 per bottle sold during this special event. Who knew you could do so much good with a few dollars?
