Levi's Bike Shop Tour: Dominic's Update September 15
Salt Lake City was busier with commuter bikers than we expected. We worked it hard in SLC. After we closed up the Levi's Bike Shop Tour for the day, our mechanics demanded that we swiftly shove along to the Bonneville Salt Flats and its international speedway on the other side of that huge salty lake. They had a score to settle.
We took our wheels for a spin out there in a barren expanse of white. The primordial salt crust from this place is still caked on our tires. I like to think its got healing properties.
As cool as the place is, there's something very eerie about the flats. Almost extra-terrestrial. Definitely worth checking out, but we do not recommend staying at any of the hotels in the area. We’ll leave it at that.
After exhausting ourselves on the hard packed salts, we carried on to the Cali coast with many more miles to go. As we sped off, we attempted one parting feat—a land speed record for a 20' trailer. Our shark fin roof made all the difference as we scorched the speedway. The dust is still settling.
