FAQs

Trip Changes

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

  • Rider Type | 3
  • Average Daily Mileage | 50
  • Terrain | Hilly
  • Average Daily Elevation | 2,300

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Bryce & Zion is best suited for our Type 3 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 2 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Type 4 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is varied, from sustained climbing in often windy conditions, to more level riding in cool canyons. The scenery and splendid views make the climbs worthwhile but this is a trip best suited to strong riders.

Bryce & Zion enjoy a desert climate, meaning generally warm to hot during the day (60-85F) but it can get downright cold at night (30-50F), depending upon the month. Light layers and a wind/waterproof shell are good for the day. Warm layers are recommended for the cold nights, especially mid-week when we stay at 8,000 feet elevation. Bring along some cool weather cycling gear just in case.

On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. See Included In The Trip Price for more information. Some non-riding options on this trip are:

  • Enjoy the peaceful serenity of Boulder Mountain Lodge
  • Hike among the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park
  • Numerous hiking options in the staggering beauty of Zion National Park
  • Shop in Springdale
  • Relax poolside with a view of red rock cliffs at Majestic View Lodge
  • Schedule a spa treatment in Springdale

For an additional fee you may request to upgrade to the brand new Trek Emonda SLR with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting for the ultimate riding experience. Upgrades to Bontrager Aeolus carbon wheels and Trek Ride Plus electric assist bicycle are also available. Contact our trip consultants for more details.

We understand things happen in life and sometimes you have to cancel or change your bike tour. We want to make it as easy as possible to do so and below you will find our timeline. If you ever have a question, just give us a call, 866 464 8735. Read our cancellation policy.

Travel Services

How to get there

We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into St. George, Utah (SGU). You can contact the St. George Shuttle (800 933 8320, www.StGShuttle.com) to schedule a taxi ride from the airport to downtown St. George for approximately $40, one way. Or you can call for a taxi upon arrival at the airport and should expect to pay a similar amount.

Alternatively, you may fly into Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS) and shuttle approximately 2 hours to St. George. The St. George Shuttle (800 933 8320, www.StGShuttle.com, $36 per person ($62 round-trip) or $49 per person ($88 round-trip for their Executive Shuttle)) will drop you off at their office in downtown St. George, and you can take a taxi to your pre-trip accommodations. When making travel plans from Las Vegas, please note that St. George, Utah is on Mountain Standard Time.

Best Western Abbey Inn | St. George, Utah

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Best Western Abbey Inn (1129 S Bluff Street, St. George, UT 84770) at 8:00 AM on the first day of the trip. If you choose to stay at the Abbey Inn the night before your trip, special rates may be available for Trek Travel guests, depending upon your travel dates. Simply mention Trek Travel when you call the hotel to book. Once the luggage has been loaded, you will shuttle 4 1/2 hours to Boulder Mountain Lodge. While on the shuttle, your guides will give you a preview of the day’s ride and commentary on the area. Please have your first day's cycling clothes easily accessible, separate from your luggage. After enjoying a fresh, delicious lunch, you will change into your biking clothes and begin the ride along the scenic Burr Trail.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Boulder Mountain Lodge (435 335 7460), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. It is highly recommended that you do everything within your power to make the scheduled pick-up, as it is very difficult to get to the Lodge on your own.
