Ghost Town Century 2011

Location: Tooele, Utah

Description: Join us on a fun ride through some of Utah’s historical Ghost Towns of Yesteryear. This is the perfect ride to start the season. Few hills, mostly flat country, little traffic, the Pony Express trail, and awe inspiring vistas. Keep a watchful eye and you may even see some old miners off in the distance. Keen ears may hear the faint notes of bugles from old Camp Floyd, which was the largest military installation in the United States & the third largest city in Utah. Come, join the ranks of Ghost Town Riders of the past!

All riders must be off the roads by 4:30pm.
