recommend routes for road biking near Park City, UT?

Better late than never: Anyone have any recommendations for routes in or around Park City, UT? Will be vacationing there next week, bringing the road bikes...and haven't even looked at a map yet!

Any must-do roads? Epic-but-not-too-epic climbs? (My wife is still nursing a knee injury so don't want to do too much extreme elevation.) Local cycle clubs we should hook up with?

Thanks.

Mirror Lake Higway out of Kamas, you have to do it!









All of these shot right off the road.

You can ride there from Park City via back roads but may want to make the small drive to Kamas to start...

Oops, just noticed the "epic climb" statement. You might want to drive this instead. Either way, it's a must do if in the area.

We did Mirror Lake Highway as one of our routes. Started in Kamas and went up 20 miles, turned around and hammered the crap out of that gentle 20 mile descent. Not much shoulder, and lots of car & truck traffic, but ultimately a fun ride. I think if I were to do it again -- and if I wasn't going to try to do the whole ~32 mile climb -- I would drive to one of the trailhead parking lots around mile 12 or 15 and start from there, because Mirror Lake Highway seemed to get conspicuously prettier the farther from Kamas we got.

Anyhow, thanks for the tip!

Oops, sorry. I should have pointed that out. Much nicer up top where all the flowing water and lakes are.
