This weekend is huge for biking enthusiasts in Park City.  Everywhere you go, large groups of cyclists have been flying by in preparation for the Tour de Park City taking place this Saturday, July 28th.  Test your endurance on the 157 mile race course from Richardson Flat Road, just outside of Park City, all the way to Evanston, Wyoming, up 10,500 feet over Bald Mountain Pass and finishing through Kamas on the return trip to Park City.

For those who are not so driven to ride 157 miles, but would still like to participate, there are three shorter courses:  a 100 mile Gran Fondo which climbs Wolf Creek Pass twice, a 50 mile Medio Fondo, and a 15 mile Piccolo Fondo.  Pick your poison and ride on!

The KPCW Cycling Festival is being held in conjunction with the Tour de Park City.  This takes place at The Yard at Bonanza Park.  Many “family friendly” events are scheduled throughout the day and pre-registration  for bike tours is available at  cbywater@kpcw.org .

Once the Tour de Park City has begun, there are guided rides on Mid Mountain, Round Valley, and Trailside hike/bike trails throughout the day with free shuttle service to each location.  Enjoy live music by Lash LaRue, PatWa, and Switchback.  Learn how to change a tire, maintain your bike, brush up on your riding skills, and demo a new bike.  Food and drink will be available from 12:00 pm till 7:00 pm when the awards ceremony has been completed.  Come on out and enjoy the day…don’t forget your bike!
