    riding this week in park city?

    hey there, i'm visiting here in park city until august 2nd. just wondering if there's any group rides or anyone who knows their way around the trails. i would like to get some good riding in this week. i'm anxious to ride the crest trail. i'm renting a blur lt from jans and will be ready to hit the trails monday morning...

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Tuesday nights at White Pine, 5:45, the Sugar ride. A women's MTB group ride. Typically divides into 6 groups based on ability (self-selecting), goes for 2 hours. Slowest group is comprised of true beginners, fastest group tends to have a wide range of rider types (racers, locals) Nice way to see some trails you might not otherwise. I am there almost every week, typically on either my Orbea Alma or my orange Niner.

    Cheers,

    We don't ride slow in the hardest group...

    Lots of long challenging rides in PC. Most of us locals are in summer mode, meaning lots of morning or evening rides (i am partial to the evening rides, due to the beer after).

    The White Pine rides are probably the way to go. If you are interested in the Heber area, Brothers Bikes has group rides. As for kayaking, I assume you mean WW? Check out utahwhitewaterclub dot org, as they often have folks meet on the mighty Weber river for a Henefer to Taggart run. Sidsports and Wasatch touring probably rent WW kayaks. REI doesn't.

    Not a group ride but would ride the crest tuesday or wednesday this week. Not sure if you want to shuttle it or ride it as a loop.

    crest.mid mountain is fun and long

    I have never done it from the PC side but it could be alot of fun that way as well.
