Death ValleyWith an ominous name like “Death Valley” you have to be dramatic and Death Valley fits that description. Cycle the largest National Park in the lower 48 states. It has the lowest elevation in the Western Hemisphere, at Badwater (282 feet below sea level). Summer temperatures can soar to over 120 degrees for weeks on end, but we will cycling for 4 days with mild mid-day temperatures of 70 degrees. 37 reptile species, 6 kinds of amphibians, and 58 species of mammals, 347 species of birds and 1,000 plant species are there for our picture taking pleasure.

Escape to one of the greatest surprises in the Western US for cycling rides that can not be matched. Death Valley's smooth, winding roads provide the perfect route to discover a land born of fire, rich in minerals, and steeped in a curious history. Some of our best rides of the weekend find us skirting the edges of Badwater Basin and climbing around the colorful challenge of Artist's Palette. Grasp the vastness of the valley from the top of Dante's View, a lookout point 5,500 feet above this dramatic landscape. This trip conveniently starts and stops in Las Vegas where airfares are at their best at this time of year.
