What's this trip about?

    What’s the one thing you wish you had on a group cycling vacation? More free time! That’s why we designed this remarkable Utah adventure with your freedom in mind. Your experienced local trip leaders have the inside knowledge to help you choose your own adventure—whether you’re looking for extra miles or a relaxing afternoon by the pool. You might challenge yourself—spinning past the rosy spines of hoodoos to the panoramic views at Bryce Canyon’s Rainbow Point. Or explore on foot—hiking the lush riverside Emerald Pools Trail or ascending the rocky switchbacks of the West Rim Trail in Zion National Park. You might also choose to browse the art galleries in Springdale, or kick back and indulge in a relaxing spa treatment at your resort hotel. The choice is yours!

With VBT, you won’t just visit a place—you’ll immerse yourself in it.

All you have to do is show up at the airport—we’ll handle the rest! From tour consultants who help you find the perfect vacation to expert local trip leaders who show you the best place for gelato, we take care of all the little details that make your trip memorable. We book your flights, arrange all your transportation and accommodations, and move your luggage between hotels. Our support vans are available to give you a lift up a hill or quickly fix a flat tire. VBT takes care of your travel details and creates unique itineraries so you can relax and enjoy your small-group vacation from start to finish.
