road bike: fairfield - September 16, 2012
This 66 mile ride visits the tiny community of Fairfield located at the south end of the Oquirrh Mountains. It was here, prior to the Civil War, that the US Government bivouacked troops and subsequently built Camp Floyd to watch over suspicious Mormon pioneers carting into the Utah Territory. All that remains today of Camp Floyd is the post cemetery and a park commemorating Fairfield's subsequent role as a Pony Express relay station and Overland Stage stop. We'll spin out to this historic site and enjoy a picnic in a park - so bring snacks as no services are available in Fairfield. The terrain is flat to rolling. Meet Elliott in the parking lot immediately north of West Jordan's community swimming pool located at 8120 South 2200 West, at 9:00am.
