Best ever all around.

Come one, come all for the best damn bicycle adventure you'll ever have. Real road bikes with great equipment and support on miles and miles of terrain that you can't get at home.

Ride the biggest National Park in the Lower 48. Death Valley's diversity is unmatched: its over 5,000 square miles protect eerie salt flats, deceptively velvety sand dunes, crazy-stripe badlands. Valleys, canyons, mountains. Mysterious sailing rocks and abandoned mines. Spend all three nights at Furnace Creek Ranch, with time to fit in a round of golf (at the course with the world's lowest elevation), go horseback riding or just sit in the sun by the pool. This 4-day getaway conveniently starts and finishes in Las Vegas.

National Parks on This Tour: Death Valley National Park 

Show All
DAY 1

Meet us in Las Vegas. Ride from the ghost town of Rhyolite over Daylight Pass, then downhill into Death Valley's Furnace Creek Resort.

Pedal from Rhyolite up to Daylight Pass. At 4,317 feet of elevation, the view from the summit captures Death Valley's sun-bleached terrain perfectly: forbidding and lonely, desolate and vast. Then it's a great 26-mile downhill straight into Furnace Creek Resort. Furnace Creek is a spring, oasis and village that sits at the point where the highest temperature in North America - 134 degrees - was recorded. It won't get anywhere near that hot when we're there, but it will be a great change from winter chill!

37.8 mi; +1150 ft / -5049 ft

DAY 2

Hike the loop from Golden Canyon to Zabriskie Point. Ride to Badwater for a terrific picnic lunch, then either ride back to Furnace Creek or do the Artist's Loop/Artist's Palette additional option.

Zabriskie Point is one of Death Valley's most famous viewpoints. It's not actually named for a famous bike racer. Its namesake was the original president of the Borax Company, whose twenty-mule teams hauled borax from mines in this region. Surrounded by a maze of wildly eroded and vibrantly colored badlands, this spectacular view is not one to miss. Take the loop hike to the point from Golden Canyon. Enjoy the views, then ride to Badwater Basin for lunch: at 282' below sea level, it's the lowest point on the continent. Want a challenge? Ride up again - 30 miles up a 7% grade to Artist's Palette at 6,533' of elevation (ouch.) The hills are tinted an amazing rainbow of hues from oxidation in the metals in the rock. Rather rest? Head back to Furnace Creek in the van for a splash in the spring-fed pool.

DAY 3

Ride to Ubehebe Crater. Hike the crater's rim, then ride to the Death Valley Sand Dunes.

Ubehebe Crater, called by the local Timbisha Shoshone by a different name meaning 'Coyote's Basket' is a giant volcanic crater 600 feet deep and a half-mile across. Hike the mile and a half around the crater's rim, then hop back on the bike to ride to the Sand Dunes. (Surprising fact: less than 1% of Death Valley is covered with sand dunes, though there's plenty of sand here.)

DAY 4

Bicycle to Dante’s View, a climb that leads to one of Death Valley’s most-photographed overlooks. After a celebration finale (and a shower) we’ll take you back to Las Vegas.

Ride to Dante's View, one of the best-loved spots for photography in Death Valley. Take a short hike from the parking lot at the top. Stand near the edge of the rim at 5,476' and get a great big view of everything you've ridden, hiked and enjoyed this week. After a lunchtime celebration here we'll whisk you back to Las Vegas in time for dinner and a night on the town.
