Some people think that vacations should be a time for laziness—sleeping late, lounging by the pool, lake, or ocean, and doing nothing more strenuous than shopping the stores and boutiques on the main streets of town. Some people, however, make it their mission to visit every sightseeing attraction, theme park, and museum in the region, packing their days so full they fall into an exhausted sleep every night. And then there are those whose vacations are more like athletic events, planning ski trips, hiking expeditions, and bike tours that stretch their muscles to the breaking point while still managing to be fun. If you’re one of the latter types, you should plan on visiting Park City in mid-September and take part in one of the top things to do in Park City, the Tour des Suds!

Held on September 16th at City Park

There are two different ways to experience fun Park City mountain biking during this 7-mile climb up the mountain; both are exciting, and neither is wrong!

Serious competitors will speed their way to the top, climbing almost 3000 feet up, giving the other riders an idea of what a true competitor is. Crossing the finish line at the Skull Candy Party Station (Guardsman Pass) and hoping that their time is good enough to win a prize, these bikers are business first and party afterwards!

The rest of us, however, see the Tour des Suds for what it is: a costume party on bikes with lots of beer and a free pair of socks for the first 250 registered! Dress in your zaniest costume, take your time getting to the top, and when you reach the finish line, you can laugh exultantly because you know that the fun REALLY begins now!

Lunch and beer after the race will be served at Red Rock Brewery as the festivities amp up to the next gear! Featuring a costume party, raffle drawing, and an awards ceremony to go along with all that beer and food, your Park City vacation will be a memorable one when you take part in all the fun! Registration costs $25 for adults 18 and over, while children 17 and under are free; don’t forget to register if you’re under 18, because you will want your bib, socks, and of course, your prize if you win!
