Like their forebears in the last century, a group of Valley Mormons will roll into Salt Lake City today on two wheels, coinciding with the sesquicentennial celebration of the Mormon pioneers' trek from Omaha to Utah. Rather than handcarts, on which many settlers pushed and pulled their belongings westward, 23 members of the Granada Hills Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be riding racing bikes.

After 97 days of walking, riding, pushing handcarts and pulling wagons over more than 1,100 miles, the survivors came to the end of the trail Tuesday when they arrived at This Is the Place State Park. When Brigham Young uttered the words that gave the site its name 150 years ago, there was no welcoming party.
