They’ll introduce you to your Trek bike for the week and will make sure you have a comfortable fit before you head out to explore the mystical landscape. Natural beauty abounds as you ride the Burr Trail through the red Wingate sandstone walls of Long Canyon to a heart-stopping view across the canyonlands sprawling to the eastern horizon. Tonight you and your new travel companions will meet at Hell’s Backbone Grill for a social hour and dinner. This one-of-a-kind restaurant is the creation of chef-owners Jen Castle and Blake Spalding. Located in one of the most remote towns in the US (population 270 at last check) and supplied by Jen and Blake’s own no-harm organic farm, Hell’s Backbone Grill is a bright spot on the culinary map.

More Information

Rider Level: 3 - Active?

205 miles
2,560 feet
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 and the windy conditions worthwhile, but our Utah bike tour is best suited to strong riders. The first three days of the trip are spent between about 6,700 and 9,000 feet elevation, which can make the riding more challenging if you spend most of your time at or near sea level. There are also sections of road that, while offering amazing views, can seem exposed to riders with a fear of heights. Our Bryce Canyon and Zion bike tour 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.
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. Some non-riding options on our Bryce Canyon and Zion Bike Tour are:
  • Enjoy the peaceful serenity of the 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 Flanigan's Inn
  • Schedule a spa treatment in Springdale

See itinerary for specific daily ride distances and elevation options. On all of our vacations, Trek Travel seeks to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer 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.

How to Get There

St. George, Utah (SGU)
8:00 AM
Best Western Abbey Inn, St. George, Utah

Say Farewell

St. George Airport (SGU)
12:00 PM
St. George Airport (SGU), St. George, Utah


We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start of your Bryce and Zion Bike Tour, 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 $25, one way. Or you can call for a taxi upon arrival at the airport and should expect to pay a similar amount. However, taxis are not necessarily waiting at this small airport so we encourage you to arrange transportation ahead of time for the transfer between the airport and your accommodations.

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, $39 per person each way or $49 per person for the Executive Shuttle) will drop you off at their office in downtown St. George, and you can take a taxi to your pre-trip accommodations. Or you may contact the St. George Express, which offers door-to-door service from the Las Vegas Airport (435 652 1100, www.stgeorgeexpress.com). Prices vary by the pickup time of the shuttle. When making travel plans from Las Vegas, please note that St. George, Utah is on Mountain Standard Time.

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 Bryce and Zion Bike Tour. 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. For guests driving to the trip start, please note that you may not leave your vehicle at the Abbey Inn during your trip. Instead, you may contact Temple View RV (800-776-6410, please mention that you are with Trek Travel) to reserve a storage space for your vehicle for the duration of your trip. It's $10/day or $50 for 5+ days (up to a month)). Temple View RV is a 0.4 mile walk from the Abbey Inn. 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. However, if you are in need of private transportation, we suggest you try the St. George Shuttle (800 933 8320, www.StGShuttle.com) to arrange transportation at your own expense.

View our pre hotel recommendations


You will say farewell to your guides at 11:00 AM at Flanigan's Inn on the final day of our Utah bike tour. You'll then shuttle one hour to the St. George Airport (SGU), arriving at approximately 12:00 PM. Please allow adequate connection time for any ongoing travel to accommodate possible traffic delays. If needed, you can alternatively be dropped off at the Abbey Inn or Temple View RV in downtown St. George after the airport drop-offs have been made.

Planning For Your Trip

On our Bryce Canyon and Zion Bike Tour, you'll enjoy a desert climate, meaning it is generally warm to hot during the day (60-100F) but 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. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip


Before: St. George, Utah

While in St. George, take advantage of the spa treatments at the Amira Spa or enjoy a round of golf at one of the local courses. There are also a range of beautiful hiking options in the region close to St. George that are well worth exploring, and we’d recommend a visit to Snow Canyon, a state park located 11 miles northwest of town, in addition to Zion National Park which you’ll visit on your trip. St. George is not a very walkable town, so if you plan to spend time here we recommend that you rent a car to get around. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:


After: Las Vegas, Nevada

For another kind of vacation fun, we recommend spending some extra time in Las Vegas at the beginning or end of your trip to enjoy this iconic city of American decadence. It is approximately a 2 hour drive from our trip start and finish in St. George, Utah to Las Vegas. There are numerous lodging options in Las Vegas from five-star resorts to small casinos. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
