This ten-day, van-supported trip explores the wild and picturesque terrain of the west Texas Big Bend region. A road rider’s dream come true, this tour offers low-traffic byways, an abundance of stunning scenery, and ample opportunities to discover the secrets of Big Bend National Park, the Chihuahuan Desert, the Davis and Chisos mountain ranges, and the Rio Grande Wild & Scenic River

Our journey through this hidden gem of the Lone Star State will not be without its challenges — the landscapes are vast, quiet, and empty, with long stretches devoid of services. But we’ll make the most of the towns we do visit, taking time to explore Fort Davis, Alpine, Marathon, Terlingua Ghost Town, Presidio, and Marfa. You’re sure to return home with a bonanza of stories from your cycling adventure in Big Bend.
