road bike ogden valley tour
Join Mike Roundy (801-745-3106) for a ride similar to last year, from Snow Basin parking, down Trappers Loop Road, around Ogden Valley including the Monastery, and back up the north side of Trappers to the point of beginning. The Trappist Monastery gift shop is not open on Sunday but the ride to and from will be a loop through lovely farmlands and we can have rest there on the lawn before heading back towards Trappers, so bring an energy bar or two. The uphill portion of Trappers Loop is 4 miles with 3 additional miles to Snow Basin parking lot and entire trip is about 35 miles. All participants meet at the Snow Basin parking lot at 10:00 AM. Take US-89 to I-84, Exit Morgan/Evanston and take first exit in Weber Canyon, Exit 92, Mt. Green/Huntsville to the Sinclair Station, turn left onto Trappers Loop road, SR-167, and drive to the top, exiting to left on Snow Basin road three miles to the parking lot. Some folks last year chose to ride up from the Sinclair station at beginning of Trappers Loop on the south end. Please tell Mike if you intend to do this. The famous Shooting Star Tavern in Huntsville is open at 2 PM on Sundays if anyone would like to venture down for a burger and/or brew after or perhaps there will be something open at Snow Basin as well.
