Parleys Canyon/I–80 Road Ride

Parleys Canyon/I–80 Road Ride Professional Review and Guide

"Despite Interstate 80 being a major transportation corridor between Salt Lake City and all points east, Parleys Canyon is quite popular with bicyclists. Named after Parley Pratt, a Mormon Pioneer who first built a toll road up the canyon to Park City in the mid-1800s, Parleys Canyon mixes gentle and steep grades where you can perfect your high-cadence “tempo” riding or build raw climbing power.

Granted, the constant whir of vehicles whizzing by is a nuisance, but you’ll get numb to it. Endurance junkies can use Parleys as a steppingstone for longer treks to Park City or up East Canyon Road."
