    Suggestions for a visitor? SLC to Torrey

    I fly to SLC next week and have to head to Torrey, UT. I'm not bringing my bike, but I'm bringing my bike stuff.

    o Any suggestions on where to rent a decent bike from between the SLC airport and Torrey? I'm fine with any reasonably equipped full squish rig. I currently ride a heavy ass '08 Nomad for my adventure rides. I'm guessing it's best to pick a bike up in SLC?

    o Sounds like once I'm in Torrey, I should head to Boulder Mountain? (http://forums.mtbr.com/utah/boulder-...ut-163962.html). Any other suggestions?

    o Anyone wanna play tour guide/trail boss on the 26th or 27th? I'll keep up!

    2nd tracks rents Scott's I think. At least they do up here in Ogden.

    SLC location:
    2927 East 3300 South
    Salt Lake City, UT 84109

    Pretty sure Wasatch Touring rents Specialized bikes. 702 East 100 South in SLC. (801) 359-9361
    Several of the shops in Park City rent bikes, but it would be 40 minutes out of your way. That said, if you had some extra time the riding in Park City is super high quality. If your schedule allowed you could swing into Jan's in PC,(believe they rent Santa Cruz) grab a bike, do a Park City ride and then blaze for Torrey.

    PM sent.

    Thanks for the replies! Sounds like 2nd Tracks can hook us up with a couple Scott Geniuses. "Go-Ride" also got back to back to me about a couple Trance's

    ripn - I wish I was able to hit PC... sure sounds better than where we are going!

    In my opinion Go Ride is one of the best shops in the valley. So they would be my first choice for rental bikes.

    Thanks for the hook-up, Silentfoe!

    Anyone ever ride to Donkey Point? Quite the adventure... but the view was worth it!

    Is it an ATV trail?
