Worldwide Cyclery: Hurricane 2024

Back for the 6th installment of our partnership with Worldwide Cyclery, for Spring 2024 we’re heading to the desert southwest!  Come join Chasing Epic and the crew from Worldwide Cyclery (Jared and Trevor for this one!) for a killer mix of riding in Hurricane, UT and the surrounding areas.  We’ll pack in a ton of riding over the course of three days including world-famous Gooseberry Mesa, Little Creek Mesa, Grafton, the Zen Trail and more.  The desert southwest is full of slickrock, chunk, tech, and mind-boggling views!

Each Chasing Epic trip is custom-designed for our clients, but you can expect big days on some of the baddest, most fun trails in southern Utah.  Make no mistake these are big rides, but we’ll also split things up to make sure it’s manageable and we can accommodate different riding levels, from intermediate to expert!   Take a look below to see what’s included with each trip, along with our planned itinerary.


Airport Options:  St. George (20 minutes) – Las Vegas (2.5 hours) – SLC (4 hours)


Technical Difficulty: Intermediate +

Fitness Level: Intermediate +

Expected Itinerary


Day 1 (April 11th): Plan on arriving in Hurricane by 5:30pm where we’ll have everyone check in and unpack their gear.  We’ll have plenty of time to build bikes and get demos dialed in before having group dinner and drinks that evening.  You’ll receive more information regarding our trip accommodations and arrival instructions with your confirmation email.


Day 2Today we’ll head just east of Hurricane to Little Creek, for a ride you won’t soon forget.  You’ll get it all on Little Creek – slickrock, tech, chunk, and lots of “play areas” for bonus riding!  Expect about 12-13 miles which will take us into the mid-afternoon… before we set up a point to point shuttle on the JEM trail, which is a 7-mile flowy downhill that looks like you’re heading right into Zion NP.  


Day 3On our second day of riding, we’ll start out on world-famous Gooseberry Mesa this morning (into the afternoon, with a stop on the point for lunch) for a taste of Utah slickrock.  Our guides will show you every nook and cranny of Gooseberry over the course of 12-15 miles, well into the afternoon.  After we finish up there, we’ll do a shuttle on Grafton Mesa which will surely test your chunky tech skills!


Day 4: It’s our last day of riding, but we’re not calling it quits just yet!  We’ll head over into Santa Clara (just outside of St. George) for a double loop of the Barrel and Zen trails… totally different than the first two days, but still so damn good.  Barrel is a mix of flow, tech and freeride, while the Zen Trail is straight-up chunk!  We should be done by 1:00pm this afternoon so you can start the journey home!

Frequently Asked Questions


Where should I fly into?

If possible, we recommend flying directly into the St. George airport- it’s only 20 minutes from our accommodations, and is a cheap Uber/Lyft ride away.  We can almost always guarantee you can find a ride back to the airport at the end of the trip, too.  Otherwise, flights into Las Vegas are easy to get, and the St. George Shuttle runs regularly from Vegas to St. George, dropping you off in the middle of town (an easy Uber ride away from our lodging).  The last option is Salt Lake City, which is a 3.5-4 hour drive that would obviously require a rental car (but it is a beautiful drive!).


How difficult is the trip fitness-wise and technically?  

Overall, we’d rate this trip as intermediate for both.  We’ll do a lot of riding each day so expect 15-20 miles (or more), but we think most intermediate riders will have a blast.  Technically, we see riders improve drastically over the course of the trip as your bike handling skills will get better with the type of terrain we’ll be riding.  And of course, there is plenty to challenge upper intermediate and advanced riders too!


Can I bring my own bike?  

Of course!  We offer a $200 discount for anyone bringing their own bike on the trip- just use code “NOBIKE4” at checkout.  We will have a full set of tools, pumps, etc that you can use when you arrive as well.


How is this trip different than a regular Chasing Epic trip?

It really isn’t: the format and rides are all the same, and we include absolutely everything you need for an incredible trip.  The only real difference is you’ll get to ride and hang out with the crew from Worldwide Cyclery: for this trip, Jared and Trevor will be there!


Are e-bikes allowed on the trip?

Unfortunately not- we don’t allow e-bikes on Chasing Epic trips, mainly because we typically ride trails where they’re not legally allowed.
