Our inside source tell us that some of the all day enduro riding features some massively long downhill stretches that end just in time for refreshments and food. It is on our "to do" list and we think it should be on yours too. It would be a great way to celebrate the National Holiday. You can even bring your road bike and explore all day.
Here is the official town press release to gander...
The seventh annual Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival is the ultimate celebration of life on two wheels. Visitors can participate or spectate in one of the many fast-paced races—or kick-back, saddle up and enjoy the summertime recreational offerings of iconic Sun Valley, ID. The four-day festival is host to endurance, skill and learning based events centralized around all things cycling. Live music, bike clinics, demos, shuttle rides and the SCOTT Enduro Cup presented by Vittoria are waiting for you at this year’s eventful weekend, happening June 29 to July 2, 2017.
Since 2010, the Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival has served as a tribute to the Wood River Valley’s passionate and vibrant cycling community. World class mountain bike trails trickle down into safe and accessible road riding access—climbing and descending through some of the most breathtaking terrain in central Idaho’s Sawtooth National Forest.
