We’re in the process of figuring out how much CO2-e this trip generates. In the meantime, find out more about our climate commitments and carbon reduction target.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Discover the needle-like hoodoo pinnacles of Bryce Canyon National Park and the sheer red sandstone canyons of Zion National Park.
  • Cycle through Snow Canyon State Park viewing ancient lava flows and petrified sand dunes.
  • Challenge yourself to inspiring climbs and freewheeling descents past millions of years of geologic history in the multihued rock layers of the Colorado Plateau.
  • Enjoy the best of Southwestern culture, cuisine and history in the same lands Butch Cassidy once called home.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip deliberately involves a fair amount of driving – this is designed that you only cycle the very best places and none of the 'transit' legs in-between.
  • To complete this trip it is important that you are both confident and competent in riding a bicycle. While the cycling distances on this trip are relatively short, the terrain can sometimes be hilly so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy the trip – but remember, we will always have the support vehicle on hand if you need to take a break for an hour or a day.
  • For groups of less than six travellers we have a single leader that drives the support vehicle alongside the group. For larger groups we have a separate driver and the leader will cycle all routes.
  • As our riding is done mostly on sealed roads with the occasional gravel cycle path there are no technical cycling skills required – If you feel like doing all the riding but with less effort, you have the option of hiring an electric bike (e-bike) on this trip.

Great trip - the scenery was absolutely stunning, so cycling through it was a dream! The cycling could be a challenge at points (especially with the heat and altitude) but the guide would always make sure it was doable for you- providing lots of water, options for breaks and a ride in the truck if needed :)

Experience was amazing and beyond our expectations. The tour made it easy to explore and just soak in the beauty and majestic nature of Southern Utah. It was well organized; Trevor, our guide, was delightful, fun, competent, and easy-going. We would meet up with fellow travelers again!

Red rock scenery , the best parks in the SW: what's not to like?! The elevation aided this trip during a June heat wave to be very doable. I'm a bike commuter and only do regular 20-30 miles: I made this trip fine at my own pace! Vember, our guide was "on it" whatever "it" was! Super adventure.
