    Questions re: renting and caryying bikes

    I'll be staying at Canyons in a couple of weeks and want to hit a variety of trails including Wasatch Crest. We will be renting bikes while there as we're flying in from Baltimore. Haven't been able to get a good feel for public transit vs. shuttles vs. hauling bikes in a rental car.

    Also have found that one shop will reserve bikes and another won't. Is it likely we'll need reservations to ride Sunday through Thursday?

    Any other suggestions as we've only ridden here for a few hours one day so lot's to figure out. I would describe us mostly cross country oriented, accustomed to east coast roots, rocks and this year wet to boot.

    PC has a bus system that is free to use and can carry bikes (just not sure how many at once): Park City : Transit Bus

    The bike shuttles obviously can carry bikes, but you would need to get to the pick up spot.

    Here is a good reference for trails up in PC: Park City Area Bike Trails

    Depending on how much mileage / hours per day you plan on spending riding, would determine your need for a rental car with a bike rack. If like 2-3 hours a day (of XC anyway), I'd think you'd be ok just staying in PC, though throw in a lift served day to mix it up. Trails like Flying Dog, Mid Mountain, Crest, etc can all be reached from the Canyons area.
    But if you plan on doing more hours or rides in day, like 2x 2-3 hour rides, you will start to run out of trails up there.

    When I look at the trail maps seems like you could ride years in PC and not get bored
