Big Cottonwood Canyon (BCC) is Salt Lake’s classic test of endurance and climbing prowess, blending gradual spinups and leg-cramping inclines. Just making it up and down BCC garners due respect in the local cycling circle; knock it off with relative ease and you’re ready for the race circuit. If you’re a recreational rider and want to experience riding in a peloton, then sign up for the annual Big Cottonwood Hill Climb in July and test yourself against the region’s best climbers.
