RIDE THE MAGNIFICENT ROADS OF SOUTHWESTERN UTAH UNDER THE WARM SPRING SUN
World famous for its diverse and thrilling mountain bike trails, the Utah Desert is still to be discovered for its amazing road cycling potential.

Hilly roads, surfaced with immaculate red asphalt & generous shoulders, circumnavigate this raw but majestic landscape. The Wheelhouse has chosen this unexplored area of the United States to offer you the best of what road cycling has to offer : Challenging climbs, diverse terrain, phenomenal landscapes, sunny and warm weather, guided rides, mechanical support, scrumptious food and luxurious accommodations. We invite you to delve into a cycling paradise under the comfort of our signature services.
Southwestern Utah offers unparalleled road cycling choices. the Utah desert is a sight to behold; rocky red formations embrace deep canyons with shallow rivers. The typical Utah landscape is raw, colourful and beautiful. In the last few years the Saint George's tourism board has invested heavily into making this area a cycling Mecca. Home of the 2020 Half Ironman's World Championships, St. George's government encourages rides across the many parks, dedicated bike paths and main roads. Large shoulders, excellent signage, cycle friendly locals, smooth asphalt surfacing and splendid vistas will provide us with an unforgettable yet challenging riding experience. From the short dedicated loop across our base to the enduring 150 km ride to Zion National Park, all rides will be supported and guided. Rides in Utah are rather hilly with important elevation gains and rolling terrain. Your typical ride will commence right after a scrumptious breakfast and will be planned as loops unless we shuttle back from the end of a ride. Constant van support will also be available for the entire duration of your ride. Hydration, snacks, mechanical support, clothing or anything else needed be at a short distance away, letting you ride and worry about nothing else.
