Here’s The Plan:
September 25th – 12:00 PM: We’ll meet in Park City, Utah, prepare our bicycles and then take off on a 21-mile bike ride from old town Park City to the scenic shores of East Canyon State Park. We will be cycling slowly, traveling at a pace that everyone can enjoy and making multiple stops along the way.
Then we’ll make camp for the night in Big Rock Campground, which is situated on the southern edge of the East Canyon Reservoir in East Canyon State Park. After setting up camp,you have the choice of cycling around the rest of the reservoir (an additional 12-mile bike ride)… or staying in camp to relax. Around 6 PM, you’ll be served Mexican burritos from my favorite local restaurant (Cafe Rio). In the evening, we’ll sit around the camp, talk and tell stories.
September 26th: After a good night’s rest in our tents, we’ll pack up our bicycles, eat a quick breakfast and then cycle 21 miles back to old town Park City.

Join The Tour!
If this sounds like a bike tour you’d like to participate in, please reserve your spot today! There are only 16 total spots available.
The cost to participate is $125 USD per person. This fee covers the cost of the campground, firewood, one Mexican burrito from Cafe Rio, a continental breakfast, marshmallows/smores, tour leaders and the transport of camp chairs/personal items between Park City and the campground. You are responsible for getting to the tour’s starting location in Park City, Utah and you must bring your own bicycle, helmet, clothing, camping equipment, camp chair, snacks, water and/or anything else that you want to bring.
The roads we’ll be traveling on are a mix of paved streets, dedicated bike paths and dirt/gravel roads. You’ll need a bike that can handle varied terrain. A mountain bike, a hybrid or a touring bike would be ideal. A road bike with skinny tires is not suitable for this tour.
The route is mostly flat, but there are a few short hills along the way, so be prepared to tackle these short climbs.
This is a fun, social bike tour (not a race), so feel free to come alone, with a friend, family member, co-worker or loved one.
