Please respond soon if you’ll be on this Leg.  I’ve done some mapping and we’ll be changing the route a bit for a pretty cool surprise.  Dinner in Ely at Nardi’s.  Those that have been there before know the food is excellent and not high priced.  And Debbie and Victor are just really good people!

Ok - I’ve realized that there may be riders wanting to jump in the ride that can’t make the start. So the route this year will be as follows:

Depart Days Inn in Springville UT at 8am Utah time

to Mona, UT - 30 miles

to Goshen, UT - 12 miles

to Grantsville, UT - 74 miles - gas stop 15-20 minutes give or take (30 mins max) 

to Wendover UT for lunch 93 miles - gas and lunch 1 hour estimate - planning on Copper Kettle on UT side 11:30-12:00

surprise stop 15 minutes

to Ely NV - 119 miles

Planning dinner at Nardi’s around 4-4:30 - she will only be open for us as the restaurant closes at 4pm - once I have an idea of how many to expect for dinner we’ll figure out a menu and likely eat family style.  If anyone has food preferences or restrictions please let me know. Current thought is BBQ style at $15-$20 per head plus tax and tip.  Last time we did this we ordered for 15 and fed over 20 with food left over.  You won’t go hungry!

Ladies and gentlemen!  Looks like about 20 of us will be on this ride. As best I know - 3 in POVs.  Of the 17 riders I know of one couple that will be 2 up.  There will be at least 1 trike and one Can Am.  This means at least 14 bikes, 2 trike/can am style and two trucks.  Of the 14 bikes - 1 will likely meet us along the way.  We’ll have a pre-ride meeting and for the late comers a private review when they join us.  Route will be a bit different this year than previous years however - still almost impossible to get lost. 😉 I’m so excited to see you all!!!  This is going to be epic!!!

Please check your email and reply to the Saturday night dinner info if you haven’t yet.  I need to let the restaurant know soon so they’ll have time to get food prices on food.  Ely is pretty rural so I want to give them as much time as possible.  Who’s getting excited??  This girl!!!!  ☺️

We are a week away - I’m so excited to ride with and see all of you!!! There will be 23 of us for dinner. Nice group! Some are coming from the east coast and may not see this post - apologies in advance for that.

 
The ride from Springville UT to Ely will have 14 - 16 bikes with a total of 16 people on bikes and two vehicles containing 3 driver/passengers. Due to the size of the group, we will follow group riding protocols. Trikes/3 wheelers to the back with the exception of my sweep rider - Randy Couch. Cages behind the sweep. Speed will be no more than 5 or so over depending on the road and conditions. There will be some slab riding and we might do a little more than the 5 - but not much.
 
There will be a ride safety meeting before we depart the hotel in Springville. I will also share route maps just in case anyone gets separated. However, if we do get separated, we will either slow and wait and pull over and wait. I will do my best to ensure we don’t make a road/direction change until we are all together however, there may be a bit of congestion getting out of the hotel and on to our true route. Thus, the maps to make sure everyone gets caught back up. 
 
There are to be 2 ’true' stops not including the end stop. Distance to first gas stop will be 116. Distance to 2nd gas stop will be 93. Here we will have lunch and a surprise mini stop. My guess is around 11:30/12pm for lunch. Longest leg of the route will be the last one at 119 miles. Total miles for this leg will be 328. We will depart the hotel at 8am. This should put us in to Ely between 3pm - 4pm local time with dinner at 5pm. 
 
For those staying at the Jailhouse in Ely - please be sure you have a room booked in your name. I had blocked some rooms but I released the ‘extras’ back to the hotel today. I’m hoping no-one booked one of the rooms I had blocked and left it in my name.
 
Note, some of you like Hotel Nevada and if that is where you choose to stay - that is fine. The hotels are across the street from each other. Both have bars and gambling! 🙂
 
For those not familiar with Nevada - it is legal to walk down the street with a drink. It is not legal to stumble drunk in public. I’ve never seen anyone arrested for walking around drunk and stumbling but I know it is a law on the books. Just some odd trivia for ya!
 
For Nardi’s - for dinner - I’ve already arranged for all food based on your feedback. It will be brisket and ribs with Mac and bean sides and green salad. I went with majority rules. Don’t worry - you’ll like the food. Once I have the actual total per person I’ll let you know what it is. Last estimate was $21.95 per person but I’m not sure if that is with tax. I’ll cover the tip myself.
 
We will pass by Nardi’s on our way to the hotel on the right not far past the traffic light.. I’ll point it out for those that have never been there. For those coming in from the west, the restaurant is past the hotel, will be on your left and is before you hit the block light.
 
By the way - for those that have been to Ely before - the light between the Jailhouse and Hotel Nevada is gone. I don’t even think it is a stop sign. 
 
I’m really looking forward to seeing old faces and meeting some new ones!!
 
Till next Saturday!!!
