On the road, just west of Utah Lake. Mt Timpanogos in the background.


Ultimate UCLER (Bluffdale Start) — RWGPS Link — Permanent #580

200.0 km (124.3 miles), with 2444 feet of cumulative elevation gain.

Introduction This 200K loop is based on the popular ULCER (Utah Lake Century Epic Ride) ride which circumnavigates Utah Lake. I added additional mileage on the south end (compared to the century ride) to get the route up to 200K. It travels in a clockwise direction and travels south to Payson before turning north again.

Warning! This first 40 miles of this route has a lot of cues and turns and may be confusing for the out-of-state rider — ride at your own risk! During the summer months, after the organized century ride, many of the official “U111” pavement markings can still be seen and may help in navigating.

Start Point Bluffdale, Utah at the junction of Redwood Road (SR-68) and 14400 South (south of SLC).


Ultimate UCLER (Mona Start) —  Free Route Permanent #3538

200.0 km (124.3 miles), with 2300 feet of cumulative elevation gain.

  • RWGPS Link (200.0km shortest route, travels on busy Pioneer Crossing for a short distance)

  • Alternate Route A (200.2 km, avoids Pioneer Crossing, but has a gnarly RR crossing at mile 54.1; dismount if necessary.)

Introduction This 200K loop is based on the popular ULCER (Utah Lake Century Epic Ride) ride which circumnavigates Utah Lake (later changed names). I added additional mileage on the south, going down to Mona (compared to the century ride) to get the route up to 200K. This route is slightly different than the Nephi Start route, as it makes a loop around West Mountain, near the shores of Utah Lake.

Warning! This last half of this route has a lot of cues and turns and may be confusing for the out-of-state rider — ride at your own risk or bring a GPS! 

Start Point Mona, about a mile west of exit 233 on I-15 to Gaydean’s Sweet Art Bakery, 15 S Main St, Mona, UT 84645.

 


Ultimate UCLER (Nephi Start) —  Free Route Permanent #800

201.2 km (125.4 miles), with 2224 feet of cumulative elevation gain.

  • RWGPS Link (shortest route, 201.2 km, travels on busy Pioneer Crossing for a short distance & past more food options than option B)

  • Alternate Route A (~ 203.5 km, zig zags south out of Lehi, then later it goes down Main St in Santaquin, missing Taco Time & goes by the Provo Airport)

Introduction This 200K loop is based on the popular ULCER (Utah Lake Century Epic Ride) ride which circumnavigates Utah Lake (later changed names). I added additional mileage on the south, going down to Nephi (compared to the century ride) to get the route up to 200K. This route is slightly different than the Lehi Start route, as it doesn’t make the loop around West Mountain, near the shores of Utah Lake. It does however, travel through Goshen Canyon for great views of Mount Nebo (see photo below).

Warning! This middle 40 miles of this route has a lot of cues and turns and may be confusing for the out-of-state rider — ride at your own risk! 

Start Point Nephi, just west of exit 225 off I-15. Your choice of Phillips 66, Chevron, Subway or Arby’s at 830 E 100 N.
