Cool Ideas for Private Mountain Bike Trips

At Chasing Epic, we specialize in the customization of private group trips:  essentially, book a trip with us with five or more guests, and the world is your oyster (within reason, of course!).  Our destinations offer incredible riding, but they offer so much more:  world-class hiking, rum distilleries, and options for doing things a little different.

Want some ideas on how to spice up your trip with Chasing Epic?  Here are three that you’re more than welcome to copy:

 

Sandwich in St. George

How does this sound:  all day rides on Gooseberry Mesa and Little Creek Mesa, separated by an epic hike to world-famous Angel’s Landing in between?  Since you’re already in one of the most incredible landscapes in the southwest, add a day to your Chasing Epic trip and head to Zion National Park on a “rest day”.

Triple Play in Crested Butte

Combine the best of both worlds, and then put a cherry on top.  We’ll ride The Dyke Trail (an absolute must-ride in the fall) from Lake Irwin one-way, ending at the Dark Canyon TH.  We’ll then leave our bikes, put on hiking shoes, and check out one of the best fall hikes you’ll ever see.  Can it possibly get better… how about a stop at Montanya Rum Distillers on Elk Avenue for an apres rum tasting?  Book this one soon, time is running out on Crested Butte in 2016!

The Fruita Double-Dip

For our standard full-day rides, we typically plan on one big ride (like 25 miles on the Kokopelli Loops).  That said, why not mix it up a little bit?  Start the day off with a couple hours of riding the fun, technical terrain of the Lunch Loops in Grand Junction.  Time for lunch-  pizza at the world-famous Hot Tomato.  Now that your group is re-energized, let’s head up to 18 Road and ride the smooth, fast singletrack of trails like Zippity-Do-Da, PBR, and Kessel Run until the sun sets.
