Completing a century ride is one of cycling’s great achievements. You’ll earn respect from your cycling peers, awe from those outside the cycling circle, and bragging rights you can tout for years. The Oquirrh Mountains Loop is a dead-on century laid out to perfection. The lack of any tough climbs and a total elevation gain of only 2,500 feet make this ride a realistic target for a greater number of cyclists seeking to break the 100-mile barrier. You’ll ride on moderately to heavily trafficked roads around the north end of the Oquirrh Mountains and down the length of the Salt Lake Valley. Although much of your attention will be focused on your front wheel and holding your line, there’s immense eye candy when you lift your head, including panoramas of the Great Salt Lake and lengthy views of the Wasatch Front.Around the Oquirrh’s south end and west side, you’ll ride a backcountry highway across Utah’s desolate western desert.
