Park City’s only year-round bike shop, 19 Sports, has relocated from The Canyons to Lower Main Street. Not only does owner and cycling enthusiast Rod Riley carry a selection of road and mountain bikes, clothing, accessories, nutrition and tools, but he also offers personalized, on-site training enabling clients to use their own bicycles.
Accommodating the average recreational rider to higher-level, more serious riders and racers, workout sessions are precise, specific to the individual and measurable. There are ten classes per week with a maximum of eight riders per class. A computerized training program, Compuserve, measures each individual’s power output during an initial performance test. Subsequent training sessions are tracked against it, while time, distance and calories burned are all reported. As opposed to a spin class where it’s easy to cheat by not turning the resistance dial, the program itself controls the tension of the riders' wheels. Classes are typically 70 minutes, and participants can constantly monitor their output in relation to classmates on a big screen mounted in front of the bikes.
Customized group options are also available for those who’d like to create a training group with their friends at a specific time. Those who train at 19 Sports during the winter enjoy complimentary, on-site bike storage.
The boutique-style bike shop carries brands like Fuji and Scott and offers repairs and tuning for all types of bikes.
