    Welcome to the Southwest!

    Your guides will meet you in St. George and whisk you to the Inn on the Cliff for a warm welcome to the Southwest. Following a bike fitting and safety talk, we set off to Snow Canyon, a lesser-known state park that boasts perfectly paved roads and pristine views of the surrounding purple-red mountains. Hop off the bike to explore canyons carved from red and white Navajo sandstone and fascinating lava tubes and flows before finishing our loop. We’ll share our first dinner together as the sun sets over the Navajo sandstone cliffs.

Pause at Sunrise Point for a picnic lunch with a side of gorgeous Bryce Canyon vistas.

  • Day 3

    Early Jurassic Rocks and Relics

    This morning we’ll explore the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon as they were meant to be experienced: on foot. The classic Queens Garden and Navajo loop leads us into the valley to get up close and personal with these staggering rock spires. After our hike, shuttle just over an hour across the plains toward Zion where one of the best restaurants in the region will serve us a lunch of local bison burgers. Later, it’s back to the bike for an epic ride that winds into Zion’s Checkerboard Mesa. We’ll pedal through Navajo Sandstone, a stunning formation built by nature over millions of years. When we hit the Zion-Mount Carmel tunnel, we’ll pack up the bikes and shuttle straight to our hotel, just outside the park entrance. Your guides can offer excellent suggestions for this evening’s dinner on your own in town.

  • Day 4

    Into Zion Valley

    Spend the morning cycling Floor of the Valley Road, a virtually car-free artery that runs through the parks’ majestic cliffs with 360-degree views of the valley’s stunning breadth. You’ll have this afternoon to explore the park on your own: season permitting, you may wish to climb the trails that rise above the canyons, visit beautiful pools, or hike the Narrows and wade through the Virgin River where it bisects the canyon. Your guides will brief you on the many options for exploring Zion’s trails, and will provide lunch for you to bring along. This evening we meet at our favorite Springdale haunt and relive the day over dinner.

    Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

    Final Morning in Zion

    On our final morning in Zion, we’ll climb out of the valley toward the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel. Soak in some mountainous panoramas as you rise on the switchbacks toward the mouth of the tunnel, then descend back into the valley as it opens up before you. Enjoy our final brunch together before a transfer that returns you to St. George.

Travelers Take Note

For training purposes and altitude sensitivity, note that the elevation on this tour can reach up to 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) above sea level.

The lodges and hotels on this tour are simpler and more rustic than typical DuVine accommodations, but were chosen for their location near national parks and access to excellent riding. Your guides will provide pre-walk briefings and directions.

To show you all our favorite parts of the Southwest, this tour includes longer transfers. We like to think of it as an opportunity to experience a greater breadth of scenery and cover as much ground as possible. In Zion National Park, the official park shuttle service must be used in order to access the Narrows hike. All shuttles are on a first-come, first-served basis and some wait time should be expected.

A very limited number of e-bikes are available on this tour. Requests will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.

For the hikes on this tour, we strongly recommend bringing hiking boots or trail shoes with good traction (not running shoes or sneakers). Moisture-wicking clothing or daypacks are also recommended, but not required.

Any scheduled tour can be made private. Your group, your dates. Go Private
