road bike: elberta to vernon out & back

We'll ride from Elberta in Utah County through Eureka and on to Vernon, returning the same way. The first part is a stiff climb of about 8 or 9 miles up to Eureka. From there, we get some downhill and rollers all the way to Vernon. On the return, we'll get a great 9 mile downhill reward for our efforts from Eureka back to the start. Since this is an out and back, you have lots of options to shorten the climb and ride distance to suit your taste. There will be small stores in Eureka and Vernon to get snacks and water, etc. This will be a social ride: ride at your own pace but we will regroup a few times along the way. Bring money for snacks or lunch. We may be able to get lunch in Eureka on the way back; if not, we could get it in the Saratoga Springs area on the drive back if we want. This is Memorial Day weekend, but these are out of the way roads that don't get much traffic. Most of the traffic will be to and from the Little Sahara Sand Dunes, but I don't think it will be too bad.
