Western Spirit Cycling has partnered with Sun Valley to provide a summer solstice Outerbike in one of the bucket list locations of mountain biking. With over 400 miles of singletrack spread throughout the valley, the mountain biking is some of the best—and most scenic—in the country. Bald Mountain now boasts America's longest purpose-built downhill and 3,100 feet of thrilling lift-accessed trails (including two new downhill rides!). For a milder experience, riders can head to the White Clouds trail network or take the leafy Wood River Trail, to any number of mixed ability trails in the Adams Gulch area. Your registration fee buys you access to the all the bikes, lunches, beer, prizes, and entrance to our evening party, not to mention a 3 day lift pass!

3 passes to choose from:  

  1. Full Demo: The whole shebang! 3 days of bike demos, 3 delicious lunches, shuttled rides, access to all of the Sun Valley Mountain Resort lifts & trails, prizes & contests, parties, and beer for 2 evenings at the event!

  2. BYOB: NO bike demos with this pass. If you are certain there is no better bike than the one you own and you feel guilty even thinking about riding another, this is the ticket for you. Bring Your Own Bike to Outerbike, enjoy the shuttled rides, access to all Sun Valley Mountain Resort lifts & trails, 3 delicious lunches, prizes & contests, parties, and beer for 2 evenings!

  3. Social Card: NO bike demos or shuttled rides with this pass. Do you or a friend want to come to Outerbike but not ride bikes? The Social Card gives access to all 3 days of Outerbike events (except bike demos & shuttled rides) and enjoy the perks of Outerbike including 3 lunches, parties, and beer for 2 evenings at the event!

Looking for lodging during Sun Valley?

Ketchum and Sun Valley offers quite a bit of lodging options within easy walking or biking distance from the Outerbike venue and that’s our first recommendation for Outerbike participants. There is also more lodging 12 miles south in the town of Hailey in addition to many camping options throughout the Wood River Valley.

There is no camping right at the event venue itself.

To make booking as easy as possible, they’ve shared their phone number for Outerbike lodging bookings through Sun Valley Resort Lodging. Call them up at 1-800-786-8259 or follow the link here to book your lodging. They book everything from single rooms to condos and cottages, and can get you set up with the right lodging type for you and your group.
