Tour Map

 Day 1 Los Angeles arrival 0 miles

Arrive at Los Angeles airport and transfer to your hotel. Location ImageExplore L.A.’s night life in Hollywood or Santa Monica or just get a goodnight’s sleep. Overnight.

 

 

 

 Day 2 Los Angeles to Palm Springs 195 miles

This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider’s Location ImageLos Angeles store and you head south. Ride the winding mountain road down to Lake Elsinore, and travel like an eagle through the roads of San Bernardino National Forest and further into Palm Springs, where you overnight.

Day 3 Palm Springs to Laughlin 205 miles

Today you may want to take a loop through Joshua Location ImageTree National Park. Enjoy the amazing colors and fantastic rock formations! At Twentynine Palms your trip gets legendary appeal, as you enter Historic Route 66 in Amboy – your road all the way up towards Laughlin. Cross the state line into Nevada and arrive in Laughlin, your stop for this evening.

 Day 4 Laughlin to Williams 190 miles

Location ImageContinue on legendary Route 66 into Arizona, stop for wild animals in Oatman and ride further on to Kingman, which is considered to be “The heart of Historic Route 66”, as it’s situated in the middle of the longest remaining stretch of the old “Mother Road”. From Kingman you head for Seligman, another one of those longest surviving stretches of Route 66, which heads off in a northern loop through the Hualapai Indian Reservation. Make a stop at the famous “Snowcap” in Seligman before you are on your way to Williams, your stop for the night.

 Day 5 Williams to Kayenta  210 miles

This morning you should rise very early as you are in Location Imagefor something spectacular… the majestic Grand Canyon! Be prepared for one of the greatest sights man has ever seen! Allow plenty of time to enjoy the fantastic views or perhaps catch one of the first helicopter flights over the Canyon. Cruise along the South Rim for a few miles and leave Grand Canyon National Park at the East entrance. Your journey continues to the incredible Monument Valley. This is Navajo Country here. The classic Wild West landscape of stark sandstone buttes and forbidding pinnacles of rock, poking from an endless expanse of drifting red sands, has an archetypal image. Only when you arrive at Monument Valley you will come to realize how much your perception of the West has in fact been shaped by this one spot. Such scenery does exist elsewhere, of course, but nowhere is it so perfectly distilled. Head for Kayenta, which is your stop for today.

 

Day 6 Kayenta to Bryce Canyon 255 miles

Location ImageFrom sleepy Mexican Hat, briefly a frenzied gold-mining camp, you continue to the Valley of the Gods, where much of the movie “Thelma and Louise” was filmed, and cross the Colorado River where it pours into Lake Powell. Lake Powell has 1960 miles of shoreline, which is more than the entire Pacific Coast and 96 water-filled side canyons. Ride along the southern tip of Capitol Reef National Park, on to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and roar on up to the Devil’s Backbone through the Escalante Wilderness en route to Bryce Canyon, where you overnight.

Day 7 Bryce Canyon to Las Vegas 285 miles

This morning take time to visit the amazing Bryce Canyon Location Imagebefore you continue to Zion National Park. Besides seeing the most beautiful rock formations found anywhere on earth, you are in for a most challenging ride here – the switchbacks of Zion! Compared to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, Zion exudes a stronger sense of nature. From Zion it is only a short ride into the neon and gambling oasis of Las Vegas. Upon arrival it will be time to return your bike at EagleRider’s Las Vegas store and transfer to your hotel. Overnight.

Day 8 Las Vegas Departure 0 miles

Today your exciting journey will come to an end with your Location Imagedeparture flight back home.
