Going back to the essentials, following the footprints or the greatest explorers, gold diggers, cowboys and outlaws, reconnecting with Mother Nature, this is why we've created the Utah Gravel Tour.
This Tour is all about you and a group of friends on bicycles riding across open lands, into the desert, across forests, far away from tarmac and wifi. We'll take you back to simple things, show you places that will make you feel amazing and will leave you without words.
Utah is spoiled of breathtaking places like Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Valley of Gods or Monument Valley, all of which you will rue riding through while we will be taking care of you.
It's a lifetime experience to share, unique in its own way.
We will take the opportunity to visit Antelope Canyon, a tight corridor into a fairy place where it's simple impossible to put words on what it looks like...
Finally, we will celebrate what will be a fantastic week in Las Vegas, because there isn't no better place to celebrate such a week !

Altitude Training Crew will welcome you at Salt Lake City Airport and drive you to Moab where we'll spend our next 2 days. Depending of our timing, we'll visit Arches National Park, just next door to Moab.
If timing is too tight, we will visit that place on the next day.
We will leave our place early morning as our longest day is awaiting for us ! After a 20 minutes transfer to the entrance of Canyonlands National Park, we will dive into the canyon on our bike and ride the full loop around it. Almost a 145 kilometres journey of only gravel roads. Last 5 kilometers promise to be a killer as we would have to climb what will be looking like an Alpes d'Huez, gravel special edition. A day for the brave.
We will be heading south for our second day riding, to Monticello, about a 135 kilometres away from Moab with a mix of gravel and tarmac.
Good news, today is gonna be fast ! A 130 kilometres ride with only 500 meters elevation gain, and over 1500 meters of elevation loss. After 2 harder day, today gonna feel like a piece of cake. The ride will end in Bluff, and would be our last stop before tomorrow's glorious end in Monument Valley.
The final ride we all have been waiting for, the one that will lead us to Monument Valley, the iconic western place. But first, we'll be riding through the Valley of Gods, also place of famous Western movies.
Last 17 kilometers will take in Monument Valley, between theses strange rock formation in the middle of the Mojave Desert. It's doesn't get more "Wild West" than that.
After a night next to Monument Valley, we'll head over to Page, where an unexpected place is located, Antelope Canyon. One of the most fairy place we've ever been to, it's like a portal to an other dimension, where you lose your sense of direction. Hands down one of the most beautiful place we've ever been to.
Next, we'll drive you back to Las Vegas, to celebrate in the best possible way what has been a glorious week full of adventures.
After we hope what has been a good night, we'll drive you back to the airport and hope you'll have a safe trip back home, with plenty of memories and pictures with you .
