The Sunset Tour is the newest tour we offer here at Salt Lake Bicycle Tours. Officially, it is the Sunset Bike and Brothel Tour. We leave any time between 5:30-6:30 pm and return between 9-10 pm or so. We get the good and empty streets, post-rush-hour, the waning of the light, the long shadows, and bubbly refreshments from a vantage point over the City! We go into more history of Salt Lake's sordid past with prostitution, bike around in the old Red Light Districts of town, and talk about the cosmopolitan nature of the American West, and Salt Lake's specific role in it!
The first folks to come with me for the Sunset Bike and Brothel Tour were on July 7th. A great crew of 5, from Albuquerque, and Denver, respectively, with a PhD student at the University of Utah mixed in there.
We cruised around town in the early evening, staying in the shade at stoplights, and at the places we visit. They were so kind and ready to have fun. We got to visit a great lookout over the City and admire the Wasatch mountains with something to drink in our hands.
Thanks to Bonnie, Don, Dan, Bruce, and Oscar for making the very first Sunset Tour spectacular!
