Additional Information

Mild winter temperatures and warm spring weather make Arizona the perfect destination for cycling trips. Spend four days road cycling and camping in the heart of the Sonoran Desert on this bike adventure. Camp out under stars as we cycle point to point between campsites, transitioning from the lush riparian environment along the Salt River to the foothills of the McDowell Mountains. Springtime temperatures offer waves of stunning wildflowers among an ocean of vibrant green cacti and warm days of riding followed by cool quiet nights.

This trip offers the excitement of adventure touring, without the commitment of buying expensive new gear and a touring bike, and removes the challenge of route planning. It’s perfect for the cyclist who wants more adventure but is still looking for some of the creature comforts they are used to in their road cycling holidays.
