What a Government Shutdown means for Magpie Cycling

Deep in the wilds of Lockhart

Deep in the wilds of Lockhart

We would be hard pressed to find anyone who has not heard of the US Government shutdown.  Here in the Canyonlands of Southern Utah, the ramifications of this event are immediate.  5 National Parks, 4 National Monuments, and 1 National Recreation Area draw people from all over the world to this area of the country.  These are all Public Lands managed by the National Park Service, which has closed the gates to ALL the lands under its administration NATION WIDE.

Therefore, Magpie Cycling will re-route our scheduled White Rim Trail and Maze Multi-Day MTB Tours away from Canyonlands National Park.  Our alternate plan is nothing particularly new & innovative; we have used this alternate route frequently in the past, in response to weather issues and/or road closures!

Our goal – as always – is to provide the best mountain biking trip in the American Southwest, with beautiful country, exceptional riding, knowledgeable and personable guides, and delicious back country cuisine.

An eye catching mesa in Lockhart Basin.

We will post further updates here on our website as needed.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns.
