Spend four days road cycling in the straight-out-of-a-painting Sonoran Desert on outstanding rural roads outside of Phoenix/Scottsdale Arizona.
Sunny spring days and inviting winter temperatures, mixed with smooth, wide roads make Arizona the perfect destination for off-season cycling trips. Spend four days road cycling and camping in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, the lushest and most diverse desert in the world on this journey-style bike adventure. Camp out under views of the Milky Way as we cycle point to point between campsites, transitioning from the verdant riparian environment along the Salt River to the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, where towering saguaro cactus stand sentry against a backdrop of made-to-order sunsets. Springtime temperatures offer waves of stunning wildflowers among an ocean of vibrant green cacti, and winters remain mild enough to enjoy a full day of riding on pristine tarmac in the outskirts of Scottsdale.
This trip offers the excitement of off-season, expedition-style bike touring without the hassle of going self-supported. It’s perfect for the cyclist who wants more adventure but understands the value of a hosted camp, knowledgeable guides and skilled vehicle support throughout.
