What an incredible adventure with a great group of people. One of my all time top vacations.Being able to bike (instead of getting on and off a bus) through a jaw dropping beautiful area of the country. Being able to stop when you wanted, take pictures and chat with other members of the group. The group was led by a extremely professional and fun group of leaders who made the trip so enjoyable and safe. Great group of participants, who also provided great new friendship and great entertainment :=)) Everyone was taking lots of photos but if you have a Go Pro camera mounted on top of your helmet you will get great videos. Great bike workout on the rolling hills. I highly recommend this trip!!

I have biked thousands of miles across the United States and this 5 day bike tour might have been the most spectacular trip yet. The scenery, the incredibly exhilarating biking, the organization and the amazing value all add up to a cyclist's dream experience.

A wonderful experience. Seeing this fantastic N.P. by bike was amazing. Everything was excellent: the bikes, hotel, wonderful restaurants, great flexible leaders...very organized and well run. The town of Moab is an experience all on its own. Totally recommend this trip.

This was my 5th cycling trip with RS. Each has been delightful, and different. The cycling out of Moab provided a good variety of Canyonlands, Arches and the LaSal mountains. The landscapes in the area are varied and beautiful. We had a good group of congenial cyclists and the leaders were terrific. Put this one on your bucket list as one to do at least once in your lifetime.

My first Road Scholar Tour exceeded my expectations. The activities (bicycling, hiking, walking to meals) and scenery were awesome. The guides were encouraging, informative, and supportive. The food was plentiful and delicious. The accommodations were very comfortable and within walking distance of meals and shopping. It was great to meet others who love being outdoors. If you like touring National Parks under your own power, this tour is for you.

A thoroughly enjoyable and challenging hiking and bicycling experience for October in a very unique corner of the U.S.

Bicycling through Arches and Canyon Lands was a beautiful trip. Seeing the rock formations from a bike on beautiful days was fantastic. We hiked to some of most the spectacular sites. I highly recommend this trip. It was amazing!!!!

The Canyon Lands and Arches bike trip was awesome! It was so much fun spending the day riding with hikes to such beautiful places. You won't be disappointed. The leaders were fantastic!

Thought I posted this earlier. This was a fabulous trip. Cycling is a wonderful way to see the landscape and have time to photograph it as well. It was a great group of people and we had many laughs. Arches and Canyonlands are almost painfully beautiful. Last, the trip leaders were also terrific; enjoyable to talk to and the trip was scheduled extremely well. This was my first Road Scholar trip; it won't be my last. One suggestion: The hotel needs upgrading-it's a bit frayed around the edges

Truly a wonderful experience seeing such a beautiful part of Utah on a bicycle. An added bonus to the extraordinary landscape were all the wild flowers in bloom at this time of year! We couldn't imagine a more enjoyable first Road Scholar trip. Iver and Jeanne, Minneapolis, MN
