The Cycle Salt Lake Century, Inc., a not-for-profit organization, is proud to sponsor this annual recreational bicycle event that features your choice of 36, 67 or 100 mile routes. Your entry fee will assist the Salt Lake City Bicycle Advocacy Committee to build and maintain bicycle routes and trails and promote cycling in Utah. Details, dates and times are listed below.

Since it's incorporation and organizing of the Cycle Salt Lake Century in 2001, the Cycle Salt Lake Century, Inc. has donated over $100,000 to local organizations and charities that directly benefit Utahns. These groups include: The Salt Lake City Mayors Bicycle Advisory Committee, Friends of Antelope Island, The American Cancer Society's Man to Man Project and Murray Relay for Life, Local Senior Center Wasatch Manor Resident Committee, Salt Lake City Bicycle Coalition, Utah Transit Authority and others. We are proud to be a part of and give back to the communities we live in and to promote bicycling as a healthy lifestyle as well as an alternative form of transportation.


All cyclists are welcome. This is a non-competitive event.

Warning: The above map should be fairly accurate but there may be last minute changes. The maps should only be used to get a general idea of the route. The route is finalized and marked only days before the ride making it difficult to update these maps in time. The route is well marked (arrows painted on the road, signs, etc.). Your packet will include an updated paper map. If you load the route into your GPS, do not follow it blindly - follow the course markings.

PARKING: Park in the gravel and paved lots as you enter the Fair Park from 1000 West near 200 North. (Map).


SIGN UP: All participants must register, see the Register section below.
Early check-in and packet pick-up will be offered Friday evening at the UTA Bike Bonanza at Gallivan Center Plaza (Map).
