The best of the West! On this trip you will visit all of the premiere riding locations in Utah and Colorado, more commonly known as 'Meccas'. You'll climb to beautiful canyon overlooks and descend natural sandstone rock formations, ride over wind carved stone arches and test your skills on the challenging Slickrock trail. If riding on awesome trails, traveling through beautiful areas, and staying in condos, hostels and hotels sounds like fun, then this trip is for you!
Days 1-4 Park City, UT: Utah is the home of immense canyon lands, spectacular sandstone arches, and high peaks that climb up past 12,000 feet. Mountain bikers are flocking here in record numbers as they discover the diversity of the endless trails. You'll sample it all; from Park City's World Championship course to the adrenaline pumping action of pure down hilling.
Days 5-8 Moab, UT: Moab has long been dubbed ‘The’ mountain biking Mecca as enthusiasts from all over the world flock here to test their skills on the slick rock which makes this area famous. In the Summer there are less riders, due to the heat, so we will have these awesome trails mostly to ourselves! We will be on the trails in the early morning and late afternoon to beat the heat and spend the rest of the day swimming and doing other fun activities.
Days 9-12 Crested Butte and Gunnison, CO: Ride on the high alpine trails that are known for tight single track switch backs, beautiful wildflowers, rocky out croppings, green meadows, and snowy high peaks. An endless supply of high altitude, single track trails await you. These trails range from challenging to beyond outrageous, but all are rated as some of the top rides in North America.
