road bike: wasatch wednesdays: wanship - kamas valley loop

I'm sneaking in a backside ride for the Wasatch Wednesdays Ride calendar. We'll ride from the Wanship Rail Trail parking area up to and around Kamas Valley. The ride is sort of a combination of parts of two or three others we do in the area with a twist or two. On the way back, let's stop for lunch at the Rhode Island Diner in Oakley. This is another ride for everyone. No real hills, just short and gentle climbs, and some rollers. The biggest climb is from the start up to Wanship dam. We gain about 150-200 feet over about 2 miles, which makes it only about a 2 percent grade. Then it is even gentler riding the rest of the way (maybe one or two tiny exceptions). As usual, this is a social ride. We'll stop and regroup several times along the way.
