Salt Lake City has earned itself a reputation for being perhaps the best city in America for accessing the outdoors. With too many ski resorts to count within an hour drive, some of the best rock climbing in the world and an innumerable number of other options from hiking to bird watching or fly fishing, it is really hard to disagree with the accolades. Needless to say, and we admit we are a bit biased here at Contender Bicycles, the greater Salt Lake area is a cyclist’s paradise (and that isn’t even taking into account the rest of the state). We love it so much we made video featuring just a small sampling of the local riding.
For those new to town, new to riding or just hoping to get a ride in during their next visit check out some of our favorite local rides below.
