A grand tour of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. From downtown Palmer, out past Sutton, back to Hatcher Pass and up to the Gold Mint trailhead. Then a screaming descent back to the valley floor. Across the valley to Big Lake, and back around to Palmer. Whew. If you haven’t been there in a while, you will be surprised by the cycling infrastructure built in the last few years. Riding in the Valley is good, and getting better all the time.
