My husband, two sons and I just returned from a three-day ride along with White Rim Canyon. It was absolutely, positively spectacular. And if you are considering a guided trip, look no further than Magpie Cycling Adventures. I'd like to highlight a few areas. First, the guides (we had Maggie and Mike) were just delightful. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the desert, history, geology, ecology...not to mention biking, nutrition, hydration, safety and first aid. Furthermore, throughout the trip, they were patient, flexible, and supportive. They were sensitive to each person's needs, priorities and limitations and, amazingly (if not magically) made the trip work for each of us. They are very aware and respectful of the fact that you are spending hard-earned vacation dollars on this experience, and they want to make it the best experience possible. And did they ever!!!! The second area I want to highlight is the FOOD. It was delicious and very thoughtfully and beautifully prepared (I'm not kidding, you will want to take pictures of it). The riding requires a lot of physical exertion, and they are mindful of giving you the best fuel possible with plenty of organic fruits and veggies. We enjoyed fish tacos (grilled salmon!); a wonderful bean salad over salad greens; pasta with freshly-made sauce; bacon and pancakes with fresh berries; quinoa with cinnamon, nuts, seeds and more berries...shall I go on? I asked Maggie to put her recipes in a cookbook! On top of all of this, the bike ride features one stunning view after another. It was a privilege to take this trip. My family and I will never forget it.
