road bike: stansbury-ophir loop

This 71-mile loop from Stansbury Park begins with a fairly gentle 22-mile ride that takes us through Tooele and Stockton. We then turn onto Ophir Canyon Rd. for the 9-mile, 1500-ft climb to Ophir (you can skip this portion of the route if you want-at least 1 rider has indicated he'll wait at the bottom for us). After descending we'll take Mormon Trail back to Stansbury, passing through Grantsville, where we can get a bit to eat (the 11 miles back to our start is flat from Grantsville). Depending on your departure point, you should allow 35 to 45 minutes for the drive to Stansbury. If you email me with your preference to carpool, I'll attempt to get us into as few vehicles as possible.
