The Jordanelle climb was enjoyable, both directions. The toughest part of the ride was the gradual ascent past Rockport, Oakley, Kamas, etc. One word of warning, North West of Francis there is about a 1 mile stretch of dirt road. It is flat, but there are potholes and, when wet, tires sink in the mud there. Hopefully it is just under construction and will be repaved.

I trained for this in 2007, but got sick and missed the actual ride. Two weeks before the ride I launched out of Heber, skipping the flat loop around Charleston and Midway. The ride up Hwy 40 is about 4-5 miles of flat, a nice warm up before starting the climb up the South side of Jordanelle which has a lot of variance including a tough little 10% spike hill just before Francis. I continued my ride into Peoa on the main road, then turned around and headed back to Heber the way I came (so I didn't take the back road loop as shown on the map) for a nice 50 mile training ride. The roads aren't bad, but you need to stay alert to the traffic and make sure to stay visible, particularly on the winding sections of the road around Oakley and Peoa. This is a great training ride at any distance, and I'm sure the full century is a lot of fun.
