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. Taxi USA (435-656-1500) is another taxi service available that can take you from St. George airport to Best Western Abbey Inn for approximately $35. You can also 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 $15/day or $65 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.
