Salt Lake City Marathon 2006 Bike Tour

      Average rating:
Rating details         Rate this ride

Description: This is the bike tour route for the 2006 Salt Lake City Marathon. It starts at the University and heads south to Midvale, a bit east and then north to the Gateway.
Comments: They close down the streets each year for the route of the Salt Lake Marathon. The cyclists get to head out at 6:00am. It's the only time of the year we get to ride through the city with all the roads closed off. What fun! The start is a bit tricky - 1250 riders heading out in less than 5 minutes.
Distance: 24.30 miles (one way)

This route is nothing particularly special. What makes the ride great is doing it without cars on the road. It's mostly downhill and fast - and you get the whole lane!

An excellent ride that I wish more regular bicyclists would come out and support. I agree that the best part is they close down the streets so you can ride the course. A close second best would be all the goodies and carb providers they load you up with at the end of the ride.
