road bike: rainbow gardens
This 52 mile ride is to Rainbow Gardens at the mouth of Ogden Canyon for lunch. Our itinerary is to ride UTA's FrontRunner train back to Salt Lake. However, riders desiring a longer ride can forego the train ride and return along the same course for 96 miles. Our route north includes spinning along three bike paths, a teeny tiny climb through Fruit Heights and stops along the way to regroup. (Cyclists riding their bikes back will face additional climbs on their return.) This ride snakes adjacent to the Weber River to its confluence with the Ogden River along the Weber River Centennial Parkway Trail - and showcases over 10 miles of Ogden City's trail system - to include some especially scenic sections. We'll detour into Ogden for warm-up drinks before returning. Bring lunch money, and for cyclists riding the train, money for the train ride back. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) in Salt Lake at UTA's Central Station, located at 330 South 600 West, at 9:00am.
