road bike: rush valley triangle

We'll start at Penney's Grill about 1/2 mile north of the junction of UT-36 and UT-73 and ride south on UT-36 to the turnoff to Faust. At the turnoff, we'll check out an historic Pony Express marker before heading east along the Pony Express Trail to the junction with UT-73 near 5-Mile Pass. At the junction, we'll turn north (left) and ride the hills and rollers along the Oquirrh Mountains past the roads to Mercur and Ophir. We'll complete the ride with a great 5 mile downhill back to Penney's. There are no services anywhere along the route other than at Penney's, so bring plenty of water and snacks.
