Bike Month in Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.

May is national bike month – which means plenty of opportunities to get out and ride. Ben Ramsey from the Park Record has the latest updates in his article for this two wheeled month. According to the latest Mountain Trails report, Round Valley was "Trailiriffic" last weekend. Charlie Sturgis, executive director of the Mountain Trails Foundation, added that, because the town is experiencing a pronounced shoulder season after a dry winter, it's a great to get out and enjoy the trail system while it's still uncrowded.

There are also a handful of social events to celebrate bike month, starting with the Young Riders Bike Swap on Saturday, May 12 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., which will provide riders a chance to sell and buy bikes and equipment while raising money for the Young Riders, a youth mountain biking program. The swap is at The Yard Event Space – so swappers can enjoy a frosty adult beverage while checking out the selections.

The Summit Bike Share is now active until the next winter. On May 15-16, Park City will celebrate Bike Share Fare Free Day – a joint effort between electric bike service Bewegen, Summit County, the Park City Chamber of Commerce and Park City. The promotion allows riders to stop in at any of the nine bike share stations around the greater Park City area and take a free 45-minute ride. On May 18, the greater Park City area will celebrate Bike to Work, School and Play Day, when the city and other local organizations will support Park City citizens in embracing pedal power. The Park City High School parking lot will serve as the event's main hub, where there will be breakfast, bike tune-ups, a bike wash and information on bike safety between 7:30 and 10 a.m.

For cyclists that will not be able to make the Young Riders Bike Swap, there's always May 19 and 20, when Cole Sport will host a bike swap to benefit the Mountain Trails Foundation. Like the Young Riders swap, all kinds of bikes for all ages are welcome and available. And on May 23, the Mountain Trails Foundation will finish the month with the Mountain Madness Open House, where members of the organization present plans for the season.

While you are out riding your bike you can think about the inaugural Deer Valley Concert Series, presented by Deer Valley Resort in conjunction with The State Room Presents, will begin on August 2 with a performance by The Decemberists and conclude on Labor Day, September 3 with Jason Mraz. The series will feature five shows this summer at the resort’s renowned Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater.
