Sun Valley, Idaho’s annual bike festival is coming to town June 29 to July 2, with a wide array of races, live entertainment, and a crowd of enthusiastic dirt shredders to up your cycling stoke.

The festival’s marquee event is the SCOTT Enduro cup July 1 and 2, a mountain bike race open to all—professionals, amateurs, and juniors—on one of the best singletrack destinations in the country.

Several other races will be held during the course of the festival, including a drag race where participants literally drag flaming logs behind their bikes. Gives new meaning to "drag race"... A kid’s mountain bike race will be held the next day, as well as a pump track state championship on July 2 open to all ages.

For those not looking to compete, there will be free rides guided by local experts, bike clinics to help you tune up your cycling skills, and a three-day expo where you can demo any bike from any brand for free, and make plans for compete in next year's races. Need more info? Head here.
