This unique retreat combines the thrill of mountain biking with the bliss of yoga. Venture deep into the high desert and exotic red rock landscapes of Western Colorado and Eastern Utah. We will take you to all the secret, silent places for this epic, dusty adventure that will leave you with messy hair and sparkling eyes.

Although general fitness is required for mountain biking, beginners are encouraged because it's an experience everyone should try.
The Paradox Valley Inn is located in the middle of nowhere down a long dirt road, among towering sandstone cliffs. Built by architect Carl Vostetek in 2005, it is a southwest adobe building that stays cool in the summer. The rooms are modern and comfortable with Wi-Fi, kitchenettes, living areas, and private bathrooms, it's what's outside that makes the place unique. It's the closest thing to the wild west you can experience in modern times.
The entire retreat is an excursion because it is a traveling retreat from one mountain biking destination to another. Day one and two, we hit the trails near Fruita, Colorado. Day three, we rest and relax in the enchanting Paradox Valley and we wind up day four in world famous Moab, Utah.
