Day 51: Short day to Salt Lake City

Today the team rode 53.5 miles from Provo to Salt Lake City, Utah. Although it was a shorter day in comparison the climbs were long and difficult with a 16% grade. Unfortunately there wasn’t the silver lining of a downhill to follow to climbing. The downhill was under construction and no bikes were allowed so the team had to be shuttled down. For lunch the team stopped at a fancy grocery store that also had Taco Bell across the street. It was split about 50/50 with who went to what place. Then the teams spent some time napping under the trees.

I would like to thank All Saints Episcopal Church for hosting the team. Today the ride was dedicated to Amy Roland’s grandma who passed away from cancer. We stayed with Amy during our time in Omaha.

Memorable moment: One group spent two and a half hours at the lunch stop. Sofie and Matt had very different opinions on when they should leave.. eventually they did end up leaving haha
