2017 18th Annual V2V LEG 12 Poll Heber City UT to Ely NV


Recommended Posts

Hotel Nevada in Ely has traditionally been the V2V hotel. Although a LC has yet to step up, I've booked a double occupancy room at Hotel Nevada for July 2 check-in. I'm open to sharing the room. PM me if you'd like to share room. The hotel has given the V2V riders a discounted room rate in the past and hope this will be the case again this year. Hope the elevator is working! LOL Out of order last year! 8)

Hotel Nevada is the Leg 12 V2V hotel, Heber City UT to Ely NV. Room rates for Leg 12 are.........Single Queen $53.10.....Double Beds (2 beds) $62.10. You must call the hotel directly, 888-406-3055, and inform them that you want to book a V2V room. Rooms cannot be booked online and receive the V2V room rate. Leg 12 dinner will be held at the hotel.

 

As of this date there are 8 people registered to ride Leg 12. If all registered participants are 2 in a room, this requires 4 rooms. I requested 10 rooms for the V2V.

OK folks, I'll be your Leg 12, Park City UT to Ely NV, leg captain. I captain this leg last year going east. If you have any questions for me, you can PM me or post your questions here so other participants can get the info. There aren't many route options but If any of you have recommendations for a really great route west, please forward that info to me. All ride suggestions/recommendations welcome!

 

See ya'll in July!!!............ed......aka Snowman808

I will be meeting up with the V2V in Heber UT and traveling west to San Francisco. Rose Mandile should be with me. In Ely I plan on staying across the street at the Jailhouse. I took a chance on Hotel Nevada last year and we had to climb 6 flights of stairs as the elevator was broke. I'm sure it's fixed and won't be a problem again however..................

 

Ed - the Hotel Nevada has the dining area downstairs - we usually ask and receive that area for us. Might be best to call ahead and confirm they still use it.

 

Can't wait to see everyone!!! :)

Unlike the other legs, there isn't much between Park City and Ely once we get out of Provo. I'm planning to stop in Delta NV for gas and lunch. Delta is about 138 miles from Park City. Ely would be about 154 miles from Delta. Gas stations between Park City and Delta will be stops for those bikes that cannot make it to Delta on a tank. Same when riding from Delta to Ely. Suggestions/recommendations are welcome for food and gas.

 

The tentative route from the hotel in Park city is:

248 --> 40 --> 113 --> 189 --> 77 --> 147 --> 141 --> 6 --> 50

Mileage to hotel in Ely from Park City is approximately 291 miles

FYI........the restaurant in Hotel Nevada is now run by Denny's. The separate dining area many of you are familiar with is still there and I've asked to use that for our dinner. I did call the Jailhouse Casino & Hotel across the street and was told their cafe closes at 6p but their other restaurant is open for dinner. Being their fine dining restaurant, I was told the average dinner price is about $25. Therefore I'll keep the dinner at Hotel Nevada. Suggestions/recommendations welcomed.

Just a friendly reminder..........high temperatures are on the agenda for Leg 12 so everyone HYDRATE! HYDRATE! HYDRATE! before, during and after the ride. Let's make this a safe ride for everyone! FYI.....if you have not yet and are considering on purchasing a water bottle, YETI and HYDROFLASK are two brands I own and can attest to their quality and ability to keep water cold over long periods.

 

It's not the destination but the journey

Here's a group pic from the ride from Park City to Ely...  Don't recall the name of the mountain we rode up but it was a GREAT ride!!!!!!! :tu   No doubt that Drake knows his roads there in Colorado!!!!

Both Cleta and I want to thank everyone for their patience with her on the Can Am, that machine is not like our bikes, we just lean while she has to manhandle that thing around the curves...

THANKS!!!!!!

Thanks for the kind words Graham!!  :y:  She's a keeper and a trooper as well when it comes to riding her Can-Am!!  V2V has become something we look forward to every year and with a little luck we'll be there next year and are considering starting in Frisco.  :tu   :chpr  :tu

Until next June...
