Newport Resort is excited to celebrate the fifth year of fewer cars on the road and cleaner air in the sky. In July 2017, Park City, Utah, launched Summit Bike Share, the country’s first fully-electric bike-share program. Today, visitors and residents are adopting this fun and accessible way to experience the beauty of Park City.
A Cleaner Way to Ride
Summit Bike Share began with a simple mission: solve regional issues with a regional solution. This e-bike sharing program lets visitors and residents lower their carbon footprint and reduce air pollution while running errands, commuting to work, or exploring the beauty of our town.
The program is simple. Just download the app on Android or iPhone, choose a membership, unlock your bike and go. Summit Bike Share has 20 e-bike stations around the city, including one at Newpark Resort, the highest capacity kiosk in the area. A single ride is $3.50, and an annual membership is $96.44 for residents and employees.
Just Start Pedaling
An electric bike may look like a regular bike, but it’s built for speed. Designed with a motor, battery, and controller, you can ride sweat-free around town all day. All of Summit Bike Share’s e-bikes have electric assist. This bike mode gives you the extra boost you may want (or need!) when you pedal through Park City’s hilly terrain.
Before your Park City trip ends, we recommend the 45-minute bike ride to the historic Main Street from Newpark Resort. Enjoy delicious dining options, great shopping, and excellent people-watching in the heart of Park City. Another guest favorite is the 25-minute ride to White Barn, also known as McPolin Farm, where you can enjoy plenty of photo opportunities.
Next time you visit Newpark Resort, we invite you to ditch the car and explore the beauty around you on two wheels. Text us to learn more about this exciting bike-share program and all of the other activities waiting for you in Park City.
