SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (January 15, 2020) — The Third Edition of the 5 Canyons Bike Challenge will tackle all five of Salt Lake Valley’s canyons in One Day, on August 29, 2020!
Wheels of Justice announced that the third edition of the 5 Canyons Bike Challenge will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 29, 2020.
The 5 Canyons Bike Challenge is one of the most difficult cycling challenges in the United States, climbing more than 14,000 feet through five of major canyons in the area, over its 116 mile total distance, all in one day. Three of the climbs are rated hors categorie, while the other two are rated as category 2. This challenge is designed for those who love the challenge of climbing, followed by screaming descents..
For comparison, Mount Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, tops out at 14,505 feet, but only has a prominence of 10,075 feet from its base. The ride first tackles Little Cottonwood Canyon, then moves on to Big Cottonwood Canyon, Millcreek Canyon, Emigration Canyon, and finally finishes in City Creek Canyon in the heart of Salt Lake City.
The beauty and serenity of an early morning canyon ride is unmatched, and nowhere are there more beautiful canyons concentrated in such close proximity as along the Wasatch Front.
Help End Childhood Trauma
Nicknamed Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, this challenge shows that no mountain is too high to keep us from protecting and helping children, as well as proving that that people can overcome any challenge facing them.
All proceeds benefit four incredible charities—Prevent Child Abuse Utah (“PCAU”), Friends of the Salt Lake County Children’s Justice Center (“Friends of the CJC”), Operation Underground Railroad (“O.U.R.”), and the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (“UDVC”)—working to put an end to childhood trauma.
All who complete the challenge will not only earn some serious bragging rights, but will accomplish major good in the world.
If you think you have what it takes, rally your friends and join the Challenge this August! Riders registering before August 17, 2020 will receive a cool schwag bag, including a water bottle, a race t-shirt, and a finisher's medal!
Riders can also purchase the additional Summit Entry, which includes meal tickets for the pre- and post-ride meals, a $100 credit for the silent auction, and a Wheels of Justice t-shirt.
