5 Canyons Bike Challenge

September 17 2022
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

5 Canyons is one of the most daunting—and beautiful—cycling challenges in the country, ascending more than 14,000 feet over 116 miles through all five of Salt Lake City's picturesque riding canyons.  Comprising three HC climbs and two Category 2 climbs, the ride has more vert than almost every other ride in America and certainly the steepest average gradient.  If you think you have what it takes, rally your friends and come join us in September!

5 Canyons a bit much to bite off?  Come, join us anyway and ride one, two, three, or four of the canyons.  You don’t have to be an elite cyclist to help make a difference.

Always held on the second odd-numbered Saturday in September, 5 Canyons takes advantage of Utah's most brilliant month for riding.  The canyons provide cool temperatures, colorful foliage, and stunning views.  And there is no more abundance of beautiful canyons in all the world than along Utah’s Wasatch Front.  The event is literally a breath of fresh air from start to finish.

All proceeds benefit Wheels of Justice, a nonprofit dedicated to putting an end to child abuse.  The inspiration for the ride is that Ain't No Mountain High Enough to keep us from fighting for the most vulnerable among us, our children.
