Escape to one of the greatest surprises in the West and a cycling experience that simply cannot be duplicated anywhere else on the planet. This charitable cycling challenge explores the absolute best of Death Valley National Park, a renowned cyclist’s paradise with little car traffic, pleasant fall weather, and unparalleled desert vistas. In the fall, the average daytime high is 72-80 degrees – great cycling weather! We’re starting and ending this ride at Stovepipe Wells, so you can park your car and ride all week with no shuttles.

On Climate Ride Death Valley, you’ll spend five days cycling 250 miles of paved roads passing spectacular salt flats, desert oases, cathedrals of red rock, and views of towering mountains like Telescope Peak (11,000 feet). With comfortable daytime temperatures, roads that are practically empty to cars, and the fact that you’re riding below sea level, you’ll get an extra boost! Additional adventures include short hikes and more. Professional guides will accompany us each day to share knowledge about the area’s unique ecosystem for you to bring home to your community. We’ve outlined a medium and long option for each day. If you prefer a shorter option, we can provide that with van shuttles.

Wildlife and wildflowers animate the space between salt spires and sand dunes in this epic park. When the desert sun drops below the jagged horizon, the dazzling night sky sparks wonderment with its display of stars. This is a once in a lifetime experience, and we want you to join us!

Daily cycling mileages to suit all types of cyclists. This is a fully supported ride which means you can focus on pedaling and making connections with your new friends while we take care of everything from overnight details, meals, snacks, luggage transport, and much more to make your trip as enjoyable as possible. Bike rental is available through our local outfitter. You can bring e-bikes to Death Valley National Park. Proceeds from this event will directly support Climate Ride’s work.
