"I loved the feeling that we're all buddies and on an adventure together, not just guides and paying customers thrust together. You did a great job cultivating a special atmosphere!" Russell Haines, UK

Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

There are places on this Earth where you stand in awe of just how beautiful our planet is and get a chill or two down your spine. On this Ride, you'll get that feeling almost every single day.

There are few places in the world that can compare to the American Southwest; experience Porcupine Rim trail on your mountain bike and you'll be stopping every few minutes to ask someone to pinch you to find out if you're dreaming. Stand at a lookout on the Thunder Mountain trail and you'll get dizzy from the spectacular views. Experience sunset at Arches National Park and you'll swear you've found God.

This incredible itinerary features as many of our local favourites as we could pack into 11 days, in places like St. George, Thunder Mountain, Zion, Moab, Fruita, and more!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Fall Itinerary (first 5 day)

Day 1. Arrive Las Vegas, transfer St George

After landing in Las Vegas, take the shuttle to our hotel in St. George and if you have time, relax and enjoy the scenery and sights in this quaint southwestern town. We'll have a meet and greet dinner at 7 pm at our hotel and discuss the incredible trip ahead.

Day 2. Bearclaw Poppy, Barrel Roll

Get ready for a fantastic first day of riding! We'll get the legs warmed up and the blood pumping on the incredibly fun Bearclaw Poppy trail, just outside of St George. Highlights include a not-too-tough one-mile hill climb, a run down a desert wash, a series of short "scary but not too hairy" drop-offs, and a roller coaster hard-pack. 

We'll grab lunch and hydrate at Jazzy Jay's, then spend the afternoon riding the best trails in the Santa Clara area, like Stucki Springs, Barrel Roll or Suicidal Tendencies. We'll head into town for dinner, then back for a swim at the hotel. 

Day 3. Gooseberry Mesa, JEM

We'll start off with the spectacular Gooseberry Mesa, now being mentioned in the same category as the Slickrock Trail and Porcupine Rim in Moab as one of the elite mountain bike trails in the world. Gooseberry is an amazing combination of technical, slick rock ups & downs and single track. Trails requiring different technical abilities loop from the road. (The South Rim loop is more technical than the North Rim loop). Views from the edge of the mesa will take your breath away!

We'll top off an incredible day with the mind-blowing JEM trail, which offers spectacular views of the chasm of the Virgin River and a high-speed singletrack descent. After a round of high-fives and a few cold ones, we'll head to Springdale to check-in at the beautiful, rustic Pioneer Lodge, just outside of the must-see Zion National Park.

Day 4. Angel's Landing, Thunder Mountain

We'll start the day off with a bang, getting up early to catch the early morning light in Zion National Park. One of the first national parks in Utah - and one of the most spectacular in the US - Zion's beauty leaves visitors breathless and speechless. Known for its canyons, Zion offers up one of North America's premier hiking experiences. We'll take a couple of hours off the bikes this morning to hike the spectacular Angel's Landing trail, which offers up a healthy serving of stunning views of Zion Canyon.

We'll grab a delicious, hearty lunch at Oscar's Cafe in Springdale, before heading over to Thunder Mountain, another one of Utah's well-known epics (rated #1 trail in US by Bike Magazine). Thunder Mountain is probably the most scenic trail in Utah. You'll ride through the bright red and pink "hoodoos" unique to the Bryce Canyon area. Although the trail is only eight miles long, often riders take over two hours to ride it because they are off of their bikes taking pictures. One of the most photographed areas is called the "spine" where you ride across a 3 foot wide spine dropping off at 45 degrees on both sides. The last 2 miles of Thunder Mountain is a fun, flowing downhill through the aspens and pines. We'll then head to the remarkable Cedar Breaks Lodge, our home for the next 2 nights, for some fine-dining, a hot-tub soak and a deep, restful slumber.

Day 5. Virgin River Rim

After fueling up on a delicious and colorie-packed breakfast, we'll shuttle to the awesome Virgin River Rim trail, one of our personal favourites. We're talking about a high-altitude alpine singletrack, skirting the edge of Utah's high southern plateau and offering excellent forested riding and some killer views. Lots of great photo opps along the way, including the iconic Pink Cliffs, an eroded rock formation similar to Bryce Canyon. 

After this incredible ride, we'll say goodbye to our friends on the Magnificent Mesas and head back to Cedar Breaks for a relaxing evening, sharing pictures, stories and laughs from the day (scroll down to Day 6 for the rest of the itinerary).

Day 3. Little Creek, JEM

This morning, we'll shuttle an hour east to Little Creek Mesa, what our driver Mark refers to as his favourite trail in all of Utah! Little Creek is the perfect mix of singletrack, open rock areas and technical challenges. The trail zigs and zags over small outcrops of rock and rolling sandstone without any long brutal climbs and just about a gazillion stunt opportunities.

We'll grab lunch in Little Plain before heading to the epic JEM trail in the afternoon, which offers spectacular views of the chasm of the Virgin River and a high-speed singletrack descent. After a round of high-fives and a few cold ones, we'll head to Springdale to check-in at the beautiful, rustic Pioneer Lodge, just outside of the must-see Zion National Park.

Day 4. Angel's Landing, Guacamole

We'll start the day off with a bang, getting up early to catch the early morning light in Zion National Park. One of the first national parks in Utah - and one of the most spectacular in the US - Zion's beauty leaves visitors breathless and speechless. Known for its canyons, Zion offers up one of North America's premier hiking experiences. We'll take a couple of hours off the bikes this morning to hike the spectacular Angel's Landing trail, which offers up a healthy serving of stunning views of Zion Canyon.

We'll grab a delicious, hearty lunch at Oscar's Cafe in Springdale, before shuttling 30 minutes to the amazing Guacamole trail, a super fun mix of undulating open-rock riding plus singletrack through pinion, juniper, and brush. It's back to the Pioneer Lodge this evening where we'll feast on traditional Southwestern cuisine, relax in the jacuzzi, throw back a few cold ones and call it a day.

Day 5. Gooseberry Mesa

We'll check out of the Pioneer Lodge and make our way to the epic Gooseberry Mesa trail, now being mentioned in the same category as the Slickrock Trail and Porcupine Rim in Moab as one of the elite mountain bike trails in the world. Gooseberry is an amazing combination of technical, slick rock ups & downs and single track. Trails requiring different technical abilities loop from the road. (The South Rim loop is more technical than the North Rim loop). Views from the edge of the mesa will take your breath away!

We'll squeeze in an afternoon ride at Bearclaw Poppy, where we'll be able to put our skills to the test on familiar dirt. After a great day of riding, we'll bid farewell to our friends on the Magnificent Mesas and make our way up to the town of Richfield, strategically located on our way to Fruita, where we'll spend the night dreaming of red rocks and fat tires.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Day 6. Transfer to Grand Junction

After 4 big days in the saddle, we'll enjoy some well deserved rest this morning - enjoying a gluttonous brunch, going for a leisurly hike and exploring our surroundings. In the afternoon, we'll hop in the van and make our way to Grand Junction, CO, where we'll check-in to our hotel and meet our new friends on the Best of Moab and Fuita. We'll have a meet-and-greet dinner at 7pm and chat about what the next few days have in store for us.

Day 7. Steve's Loop, Moore's Fun 

Fruita is now mentioned as often as Moab when talking about mountain biking meccas in the United States (and some will say in the world). There's a bit of everything: breathtaking climbs, tight switchbacks, exhilarating downhills and technical challenges unmatched in most of North America. Today, we'll head to Fruita, then ride several local epics in the Kokopelli area, including Steve's Loop and Moore's Fun. Tonight, we stay in Grand Junction.

Day 8. Mag 7, Bar M

Today, we're off to Mag 7, an awesome new trail system in Moab. The first part has lots of fast-paced, holy-crap-that-was-fun sections. Then, there are two options on the second half of the trail: we can either go down the famous Poison Spider Trail including the Portal or the more intermediate, Gemini Bridges Road.  We'll hit up Bar M in the afternoon; a great mixture of slick rock and singletrack loops.

Day 9. The Whole Enchilada

Linking up several Moab favourites, this trail spans almost 30 miles and has a cumulative descent of over 8,000 feet. The beauty of this ride is not just the sheer scale of it - but its diversity. Starting in high alpine forest at Burro Pass, the ride transitions to aspens, high desert and finishes off plummeting down to the Colorado River on exposed singletrack. It includes Porcupine Rim, one of the most incredible trails in the world. The type of riding if vastly diverse as well: from slow, steep and technical rocky singletrack to wide open high speed sections and everything in between.

Day 10. Slick Rock, Arches hike

This morning, it's off to the most recognized trail in the world: Slickrock. Often because it is so well known people mistakenly think Slickrock is easier than it really is. This is a rock trail marked by white dots to guide your way, and it's not a beginner or even lower intermediate trail - it's a technical romp through spectacular scenery, and a ride that will stay with you forever. The views across the slick rock, especially in the early morning or late afternoon will take your breath away. In the afternoon, we'll head over to the spectacular Arches National Park with views to die for. We'll then hop back in the van to enjoy our final dinner together in Moab and hit the hay for a good night's rest.

Day 11. Moab to St George

We'll head out in the morning after a hearty breakfast for the drive back to St George, arriving at around 4pm. You can then hop on your shuttle back to Las Vegas. We recommend you not book a flight leaving Las Vegas before 9pm, or spend the night in Sin City to fly out the next morning.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage, is compulsory for all our tours.

You can purchase discounted comprehensive insurance via our site at our insurance page.

What type of bike should you bring?

We recommend you bring a solid all-mountain bike with you on this trip, with at least 4-5" of travel, and no heavier than 30 pounds since there are several long climbs. A bike with at least 2 chainrings up front is mandatory, as is front suspension.

Tools to bring

  • multitool (preferably with chainbreaker)
  • tire levers
  • small bottle of chain lube
  • tire pump
  • suspension pump
  • sealant (if you're on tubeless)

Spare parts for your bike

Although there are some parts available locally, we recommend you bring the following parts and gear with you to avoid problems in case of breakdown or broken parts:

  • rear derailleur hanger (at least 1, preferably 2)
  • extra set of front and rear brake pads
  • extra chain if your chain is more than 6 months old
  • 4 tubes
  • 4 extra spokes

N.B. If you are renting a bike, the above is not necessary (save for a few extra tubes).

Bike Rentals

If you don't feel like hauling your bike to Utah, an alternative is renting a bike. We have full-suspension Cannondale and Santa Cruz models available in different sizes. Perfect bikes for the type of terrain you'll be tackling on this trip. Cost is $650 CAD for the ride duration. A rental bike can be added to your booking at anytime (up until a month prior to your departure) as a Ride Enhancement add-on.

Travelling with your bike

Pika Packworks bag

If you've never traveled with your bike, don't worry - it's much easier than you think! If you don't have a case for your bike, we recommend one of two options:

1) if you think you may be travelling more than once with your bike, then we recommend purchasing a purpose-made bike bag. This will protect your bike from damages, and makes shlepping your bike around a little bit easier than with a rigid box or cardboard box. We sell beautiful handmade bags by PikaPackworks in the United States. For more information, visit our online store.

2) If you think this is the only trip you'll take with your bike for a while, then you can pick up a cardboard travel box for your bike at your local store. Some stores will also pack your bike up for you for a fee.

Assembling your bike when you arrive

We have bike stands and a full toolset available for assembling your bike once we arrive in St. George.
