This weeklong tour through the glorious red-rock country of southern Utah offers an irresistible mix for the bike traveler who enjoys riding self-supported but also prefers sleeping in a bed over tenting it.
The Utah Parks Loop features unrivaled scenery, including the otherworldly shapes and shades of Zion National Park, the ghostly hoodoos carved out of the colorful Paunsaugunt Plateau in Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Technicolor climbs and descents in Cedar Breaks National Monument. We’ll leave plenty of time to explore each of these geologic gems, both on and off the bike. As part of a small group of around a dozen participants, you will enjoy expert guides, restaurant meals, and a hot shower and warm bed at the end of each day.
Come along for an adventure that blends the independence of self-supported touring with light loads and the comfort of indoor accommodations — all amidst some of the Southwest’s most magnificent landscapes.
