This ride is a 102 km permanent populaire. It is a flat ride that heads up to a grocery store in Farmington Station and then heads down Legacy trail, across the airport to the southern end of the Great Salt Lake to an info control at the Great Saltair, ending back at the start. The one challenge is if you are unfamiliar with the suburban roads and multi-use paths, but a little attention to detail goes a long way, and nothing is “tricky.” There are some services just west of the airport (Subway and a gas station), but nothing other than a bathroom at the Great Saltair.
There are time restrictions on when one can cross the bike path by the airport. Please see this website for more information.

To sign up for any of my permanents, please email me. The preferred way to do this is for you to fill out the paperwork (download here) and send to me a couple weeks in advance (snail mail or email is fine, I just need to see an actual signature). I can then email you the cue sheet and perm card. I can accommodate shorter time frames assuming I am in town. I can see the start from my house, so I just meet you at the start a few minutes beforehand and we handle all paperwork there. One of these days, I will blow through my alarm clock on a Saturday morning. After the ride you can either drop off your card and receipts at my house or mail them to me. There is no cost to do the Perm. If you want your card mailed to you after the calendar year you will need to provide a self addressed envelope with a stamp. Not providing this to me is consent for me to destroy your perm card(s) after the first of the year.
