Explore The Best Singletrack In The Southwest!
This fall, Durango Mountain Bike Tours is offering a chance to explore the very best singletrack in the Southwest! Come and experience the ultimate rides in the places in the Southwestern US that have always been on your bucket list. We will take care of everything including transportation, lodging, meals, and local guides in each location to show you the best time on the best trails.
Day 1 – Welcome!
Arrive in Durango. We will pick you up at the airport and deposit you at your hotel. If you bring your own bike, we can arrange for it to be unpacked and checked out while you relax. If you plan to rent, we will arrange the rental.
The group will unwind and get their legs and lungs ready with an evening ride on the local Durango trails with your hosts for the week, followed by a welcome dinner at a local restaurant where we will go the the week’s itinerary and answer any questions.
Day 2 – Durango CO
Time to go explore the more than 100 miles of trails around Durango! We will do a morning ride, lunch in town, and then an afternoon ride on the famous Durango area singletrack.
An early group dinner downtown and a chance to shop (or pub crawl!) followed by a good night’s sleep before we hit the road.
Day 3 – New Mexico
A big breakfast and an early departure from Durango towards Gallup NM! Along the way we will take a morning spin at a locals favorite called Alien Run – complete with a visit to the site where a UFO crashed in 1948!
We will continue on to Gallup, check into our hotel, and then enjoy the High Desert Trails before an evening meal and a well deserved sleep.
Day 4 – Sedona AZ
Drive from Gallup to Sedona. We will be staying the next two nights at the beautiful Sedona Real, so you can spread out a little and relax. But first we will have lunch and then hit the red velvet! Dinner will be on your own this evening, and Sedona has a lot of great dining options.
Day 5 – More Sedona
There is just too much Sedona to do in a day, so we do two more rides here on Day 5.
Enjoy some downtime at the pool, maybe book a well deserved massage, and get a good night’s sleep.
Day 6 – Scottsdale AZ
A quick drive through the beautiful desert scenery and we will arrive at the Carefree Resort in Scottsdale. There is plenty to enjoy at the resort, and the riding at the nearby McDowell Sonoran Reserve is not to be missed!
Day 7 – Prescott AZ
A quick morning drive through the desert to the historic town of Prescott. We will take a morning spin, have lunch, and ride again. There is an amazing mix of terrain – big pines, lakes, slickrock and more!
You are on your own for dinner and the hotel is right downtown – explore the old west and enjoy a big steak!
Day 8 – Phil’s World and Durango
A long drive home today – but we stop along the way for a classic Southwest ride that is on everyone’s bucket list – Phil’s World!
After the bike ride it is a quick 45 minute drive back to Durango where we can clean up and then enjoy one last meal together. The last night is always a blast, and some participants are sure to receive an award from your hosts 🙂
Day 9 – Say our goodbyes
We will arrange shuttles back to the airport and see you on your way with sore legs, a suntan and smiles for miles.
Is This Ride Right For You???
You love ripping fun singletrack through desert and high desert. You can handle a few minor technical challenges knowing that ‘it is all rideable’. You can ride 2-3 hours with plenty of rest stops, and then do it again after lunch.
