Riding to Remember the Cyclists We’ve Lost.
With the passing in 2012 of Bob Kinney, founder of Bike 2 Bike, many wondered what would become of the Ghost Town Century. In 2013, the event was back but with a new name & new focus on some of the same great roads and stunning scenery of the Tooele Valley in Utah. We continue our efforts to raise awareness of cyclists on the road while honoring, remembering and celebrating the cyclists no longer with us.
In 2015 we’ll ride to honor the memory of cyclists and cycling enthusiasts no longer with us.
With 120, 65 and 35 mile ride options, you’ll tour the Utah Valley and the West Desert with hundreds of friends – both old and new – to get your cycling season off to a great start. Enjoy terrain from your start line in Genola through small towns and scenic vistas overlooking the valley.
The Ghost Ride Century departs the start line, based this year at Genola Town Park, at 7:00 a.m. and rolls through the area in the early morning hours. With rolling hills and a few steady climbs, the route has about 4,500 feet of total vertical ascent – not a ride for the faint or heart of weak of legs. If 120 miles and 4,500 feet of climbing are too much for you – and that’s OK – please consider one of our shorter distance rides which feature much less climbing.
