PARK CITY, UT – On August 23, just weeks after top pro cyclists race through the Wasatch Mountains vying for the title of Tour of Utah Champion, cyclists of all ages and abilities roll many of the same roads in the name of fun and fundraising.
The 2014 Summit Challenge starts at the National Ability Center, 1000 Ability Way, in Park City.
Named the 2012 Event of the Year by Cycling Utah – the Summit Challenge offers three different course lengths: 102 miles, 52 miles, and 18 miles. Participants are fully support throughout the rides, which wind through the stunning mountains and beautiful valleys of Wasatch and Summit counties. There also will be a three-mile demonstration loop, kids’ activities, cycling vendors, and more.
“We anticipate 30 Veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project and another 100 cyclists with disabilities for this year’s ride,” said Gail Loveland, National Ability Center Executive Director. “This is more than just a bike event. It is a way for people to share their love of bike riding with others and show their support for individuals who benefit from National Ability Center programs and services.”
Entry fees allow persons with disabilities to ride for free and also support National Ability Center programs. More than 30 veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project are expected to ride.
