Riding to Remember the Cyclists We’ve Lost.
EVENT DAY INFO
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 2014 we’ll ride to honor the memory of cyclists and cycling enthusiasts Craig Buchi and Chris Sherwin.
With 100, 65 and 40 mile ride options, you’ll tour the Tooele Valley with hundreds of friends – both old and new – to get your cycling season off to a great start. Enjoy terrain from your start line north of Tooele through small towns and scenic vistas overlooking the valley.
The 100 Mile ride departs the start line, based this year at Stansbury High School in Stansbury Park, at 8:00 a.m. and rolls through Tooele in the early morning hours. With rolling hills and a few steady climbs, the route has about 2,500 feet of total vertical ascent and tops out at an elevation of roughly 5,700 feet. before returning to the finish line which rests at about 4,500 feet. For those signing up for the 100-mile option, there is an optional climb up Ophir Canyon to push the ride to about 104 miles with a special prize waiting at the top of the climb.
