Wheels of Justice is stoked to announce the second annual Ain’t No Mountain High Enough! ride. This epic ride will start at the Black Bear Diner in Sandy, where the good people there will provide us with a free pancake breakfast. Then we will ascend all five of Salt Lake City's rideable canyons—Little Cottonwood Canyon, Big Cottonwood Canyon, Millcreek Canyon, Emigration Canyon, and then, City Creek Canyon—for a total distance of 116 miles and a total elevation gain of over 14,000 feet! Riders can choose one, two, three, four, or all five canyons. The ride is not easy, but neither is the fight to put an end to child abuse and help victims. With more elevation gain than the most prominent peak in the continental United States and even more than the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawai’i, this formidable ride is meant to show our team’s commitment to protecting and helping children and that people can overcome any challenge.
Everyone who rides will be given a free pancake breakfast at the Black Bear Diner in Sandy, a free finisher's medal (courtesy of DNA Cycling), and a free Wheels of Justice water bottle (courtesy of UtahBikingLaw.com). Everyone will also be eligible to win a number of awesome prizes, thanks to our awesome community partners!
The ride is FREE. We simply ask that you consider making a donation to the cause. (We are grateful for donations of any size.) In addition to any personal donation you decide to make, you can also ask your family and friends to donate a penny for each foot of elevation you climb during the ride. ALL proceeds from the ride (and merchandise sales) go to help four incredible organizations making a real difference in our community: Prevent Child Abuse Utah, Friends of the Salt Lake County Children’s Justice Center, Operation Underground Railroad, and the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition.
