The Summit Challenge, a road bike tour in and around Park City to benefit the National Ability Center, has an option for everyone, with routes of 102 miles, 52 miles and 16 miles.
Fun Route Facts: 
  • 16-mile: This route is almost entirely on marked bike lanes and non-motorized paved paths.
  • 52-mile: Ride Summit County’s best, quiet, bicycle-friendly roads and challenge yourself with a few hills.
  • 102-mile: With a steep, hard climb, this route travels the pristine private roads of Wolf Creek Ranch.

All routes start and finish at the National Ability Center Ranch in Quinn’s Junction, and all feature rest stops staffed by enthusiastic, outstanding volunteers. Summit Challenge sold out the past two years, so don’t wait to sign up!
