Yes, there is road biking in Utah! The Beehive State is not just a mountain biking mecca, it also boasts thousands of miles of paved roads - roads that unveil the full breadth of the state's natural spendors, including arches, basins, canyons, deserts, dunes, flats, lakes, mountains, ridges and rivers. That's not to mention communities rich in history, festivals, pictureque settings, and even legends. Featuring forty rides throughout the state, including the Wasatch Front and areas well beyond, Road Biking Utah provides a personal tour of all the beauty and diversity Utah has to offer.
