road bike: rainbow gardens
This 52 mile ride is to Rainbow Gardens at the mouth of Ogden Canyon for lunch. Our itinerary is to cycle north and then 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 97 miles, or return via Harrison Boulevard for a slightly shorter 87 mile trek.) Our route north includes spinning along three bike paths, a teeny tiny climb through Fruit Heights and stops along the way to regroup. 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 nifty trail system - to include some especially scenic sections. We'll detour into Ogden for warm-up drinks before returning on the train if there is interest. 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.
