Golden Spoke Rides and Event
June 2, 2018 @ 5:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Join us to celebrate over 100 miles of safe, separated, and connected multi-use trails linking Ogden and Provo on Saturday, June 2.
The Wasatch Front Regional Council, in partnership with the Utah Department of Transportation; Utah Transit Authority; Bike Utah; Jordan River Commission; Mountainland Association of Governments; Utah Department of Health; Utah Governor’s Office of Outdoor Recreation; and Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, and Weber counties, invites you to participate in a group bike ride and family-friendly event to celebrate the completion of the Golden Spoke network. The Golden Spoke consists of over 100 miles of safe, separated, and connected multi-use trails, including Ogden River Parkway, Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail (funded gap), Legacy Trail, Jordan River Trail, Murdock Canal Trail, and Provo River Parkway, and links Ogden and Provo.
This free event, presented by Intermountain Live Well and SelectHealth, includes two simultaneous group bike rides. One ride begins at Rainbow Gardens in Ogden Canyon and travels south (approximately 47 miles), while a second ride begins at Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon and travels north (approximately 57 miles). The two group bike rides will converge in the center of the connected trails at the new Jordan River Bridge in Salt Lake City. Community members will have the opportunity to join at multiple points along the trails for a shorter ride, run, or walk. Additionally, there will be community events hosted along the way, as well as a final celebration at the Fisher Mansion in Salt Lake City, which will include guest speakers and family-friendly activities.
The group bike rides and event are free, but registration is requested. If you have any questions and/or are interested in planning a community event, please contact Scott Hess at 801-363-4250.
