Virtually Biking Across America - Day 31
On day 31, I traveled 24.6 miles across Northeastern Utah. Starting from the Pony Express Mountain Dale Station [N40 46 52.8 W111 40 58.8], I rode up Highway 65 past East Canyon Reservoir to Henefer, Utah. Along the way, I passed the Pony Express Bauchmann's [N40 51 23.8 W111 35 20.8] and Dixie Hollow [N40 56 26.0 W111 33 38.0] stations.
It was a challenging ride. The first 5 plus miles climbed steadily with grade often between 9% and 11%. The road then descended steeply for 5 miles between leveling off along the East Canyon Reservoir. I was surprised how barren the last half of the ride was.
