Outside on the road bike!

Early in, early out was the plan for work today. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to leave quite as early as I'd hoped (doesn't that always seems to happen?). Regardless, I was able to get in 1 hour on the road late this afternoon. My legs felt great and I enjoyed the fresh air. One bummer was discovering that the frontage road that runs along the west side of I-15 in front of the prison is undergoing some major construction. The right lane (heading south) has had most of the asphalt removed so I was forced to ride near the centerline which isn't ideal. Luckily there wasn't much traffic and the dirt was hard packed so when I had to move over to make way for an oncoming dump truck it wasn't a big deal. Just a little early season training for Hell of the North!

Speaking of road work, does anybody know if the I-80 frontage road construction is completed between the International Center and 7200 West?

I think the Super on that job said late summer this year on the I80 frontage rd. It will never be the same again. I guess this is just the first of many projects on that section. Not to mention that with the new buisnesses, the traffic will increase as well.
