We invite you to cycle one of the most breathtaking places on earth.

In California’s Death Valley, rich hues of otherworldly beauty and hexagon-laced salt flats paint our days, spring flowers splash by roadside, sensual hills roll to a dancing horizon, and wide open spaces remind us why we ride. And ride we will, with options to conquer challenging climbs with staggeringly scenic rewards. We’ll explore history here, too, during visits to the Borax Works and Scotty’s Castle. To appreciate it all in comfort, we’ll visit during its coolest months, and luxuriate at the renowned 4-diamond Inn at Furnace Creek.

What to Expect

We will be riding at elevations between 282 feet below sea level and 5,475 feet above sea level. Our rides are entirely on paved roads within the National Park and we share the road with car traffic. Terrain is rolling, with one option for a steep climb. Our VBT van support shuttle is always available for those who need assistance. Pre-planned route notes and maps allow each rider to go at their own pace. This vacation is ideal for more experienced cyclists. Several of the walks require a transfer from our hotel to the start of the walk. Our tour leaders often use this time in the van for our morning route review, so we can enjoy a more leisurely morning at breakfast.
