road bike: wasatch wednesdays: grantsville - tooele - south mountain loop
We'll start in Grantsville and head east and south to Tooele mainly using roads with very little traffic. From Tooele, we'll go south through Stockton and on to Rush Valley where we'll turn west and north to follow Mormon Trail road on the west side of South Mountain back to Grantsville. Along the way, we'll pass Penny's Grill, an historic gas station, cafe, pool hall and watering hole (to name a few of its incarnations over the years), dating from 1948. It is located a few miles south of Stockton, and is open again as a grill after being "mothballed" for several years. It is a great place to stop for lunch if we want to do that. This ride is social: ride at your own pace but we'll stop to regroup several times along the way. Please call or check your email if the weather looks iffy.
