Riders love a challenge. And every great challenge brings a reward. Yours will come in the form of epic canyons, grand rock formations and lots of downhill. You'll marvel at how wind and water can produce such beautiful places. But most of all, just enjoy it. And when you return home, the challenge becomes finding routes that can live up to these.
1-2 Pedal through Snow Canyon's orange and white Navajo sandstone cliffs | Experience awe-inspiring Cedar Breaks National Monument, a lesser-known gem with stone towers, canyons, columns and arches | Descend into meadows ringed by quaking aspen and ponderosa pine | Spin across the high desert to Bryce Canyon, where visibility on a clear day exceeds 100 miles.
3 Explore the otherworldly wonderland of Bryce Canyon National Park during a ride to Rainbow Point and hikes on such aptly named trails as Sunrise, Inspiration and Queen's Garden | Grab your camera and a seat on the canyon rim to watch the sun set—an unforgettable performance.
4 Witness extraordinary rock formations en route to Zion as you pedal through Red Canyon, brimming with crimson-colored pinnacles, spires and hoodoos | Watch for the impressive white-sandstone Elkhart Cliffs and geometric Checkerboard Mesa.
5-6 Soak up jaw-dropping views of Zion's towering canyon cliffs from Angels Landing—at nearly 1,500 feet above the valley, it's an epic hike! | Or wade through the Narrows into the inner gorge of the Virgin River, where waterfalls and hanging gardens cascade down the walls | Take in the red and pink cliffs from the saddle as you bike along car-free Zion Canyon Scenic Drive.
