Young Bike Riders Swap
Saturday, May 12: 8AM – 5PM
Sunday, May 13: 11AM – 3PM
The Young Riders Bike Swap serves a couple of different purposes. For some, it’s to snag a bike. For others, it’s to get rid of all the old equipment in our garages. Proceeds raised help fund the Young Riders organization, which was “founded in 1996 as a way to keep kids happy and healthy when the snow melts.” Happening at The YARD, 1251 Kearns Blvd. May is National Bike Month and Park City has a plethora of ways for you to enjoy it!
“Park City Hiking Guide”
Park City is home to one of the most incredible trail systems in the world, and a new guide has just been published to help you navigate them. There are maps and directions for 45 hikes in the “Park City Hiking Guide,” written by Park City local Beverly Hurwitz, a physician and a lifelong hiker.
Paths through Park City Mountain are included in the book, among other areas in town. Also included: info on trail etiquette, hiker safety and first aid. A perfect gift for locals and guests alike! The book is available at Dolly’s Bookstore, Cole Sport, The Market at Park City, Right at home, Switchback Sports, J.W. Allen & Sons Toy Store, and Amazon.
