This 7-day trip offers the most diverse landscapes, making it a perfect “Instagram ride“. The state of Utah is home of the most popular National Parks of the United States, and you will get to experience them via backcountry roads. After taking in the immensity of Grand Canyon on its South rim, you will head towards the majestic landscapes of Capitol Reef National Park and enjoy the breathtaking views above Lake Powell. Then we ride west to discover the wonderful Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. For the end of the ride, Arizona will enchant you with some of its natural wonders, such as Monument Valley and the remote and less explored North rim of Grand Canyon, before heading back to Las Vegas.
IS IT A TRIP FOR ME?
This Spring / Fall trip is designed for intermediate riders looking for a fun ride in some of the most iconic areas of the West. While the trip is not intented for beginners, you’ll find that most of the trails are easy, usually following large jeep trails and gravel roads. As for the paved sections, they cover about 70% of the trip and they are just as beautiful with very little traffic.
Weather should be great at this time of year, but you should be prepared for a wide range of temperatures.
Last, but not least, we will be riding the Tenere 700 in very remote areas where search and rescue might need hours to reach us. Safety will be our top priority over performance.
Overall, the challenge is perfectly doable for any rider of moderate experience in good physical condition and willing to put in the effort to live a great adventure.
Starts/ends in Las Vegas, NV
