crazy 75 mile frontrunner road bike slc to ogden via big mountain pass

This crazy ride starts at the Salt Lake Frontrunner station and ends at the Ogden Frontrunner station. From SLC, we'll travel east on 8th South and up Emigration canyon, then over Big Mountain pass. The route then goes through East Canyon to Morgan Valley and on to Mountain Green. From there, our route takes us west down I-84 (a short stint of about 5 miles) to the mouth of Weber Canyon through Uintah and South Weber to Riverdale. We'll then hop on the lovely tree-canopied Weber River Bike Pathway, which provides a beautiful finish to our ride. If time allows, we can stop for a late-afternoon meal - Rooster's is always a good place - before hopping on Frontrunner to get us back to Salt Lake. We'll regroup at key points along the route and stop for water and restrooms at least twice. After we enter Emigration Canyon there will be no water available until we reach East Canyon Resort after 30 miles and significant climbing. Plan to be gone all day and bring money for Frontrunner fare ($5.50) and any food or drink you wish to purchase en route. Also, note that we have 2 return options on Frontrunner: 3:45 and 5:15 PM. Please plan accordingly and notify me if you plan to join us. This is an all-day event so there will be a prompt 8:00 am departure.
