Top Five Fall Rides for Groups in the U.S.

Posted by Ashley Korenblat on Aug 27, 2015 7:00:00 PM

Fall is quickly approaching and we'll all be working to get back in the swing of things after the summer. But just because the days are getting shorter and the kids are back in school doesn't mean we can't still have some fun! With travel plans slowing down and schedules being a bit more predictable, the fall is the perfect time to take your group on vacation—and let us handle all of the logistics. Here are our 5 top recommendations for your group ride this fall.

The White Rim

This is the classic Moab ride, and Western Spirit's original guided mountain bike adventure. With dates throughout the fall, you're sure to find a trip that fits your schedule. The White Rim Trail is a great first foray into mountain biking, but still packs plenty of punch for more experienced riders. Technical portions provide some challenge, but are easily walkable for beginners. Riding on sandstone, riders enjoy breathtaking views of Canyonlands National Park, including rock formations, ancient ruins, and the Island in the Sky.
