Route: “The ride around the Wellsvilles is one of my most favorite rides in all of Utah,” says Nate Stowers. It has lots of beautiful scenery, good climbs, and lots of straight-aways with good road and line of sight. The ride begins at 7am to 8am from Willow Park in Logan, The first 12 miles are along the valley floor and the eastern gentle rolls along on the foothill of the majestic Wellsville Mountains. Drop off excess clothing at the first rest stop in Wellsville, we’ll return it to the finish line. At Wellsville the route begins a climb of 1200 feet to the summit of Sardine Canyon. After a descent through Sardine the view opens to the Wasatch front at Brigham City where the second rest station awaits. The next stretch is along the western foothills along a meandoring road toward Deweyville, the third rest station.
