FAQ

Q: What is the weather like in October?
A: The average high is in the low 80’s with a low in the lower 50’s. Mornings can be cool but it warms up fast. However, it is not uncommon for a day to reach well into the high 80’s or even stay in the 60’s so be sure to watch the weather.

Q: How many rest stops are on the course?
A: There are five stops for the 100 mile riders, four for the 75 mile riders and one for the 35 mile riders.

Q: Will there be sag vehicles on the course?
A: Yes, but it’s still a good idea to be prepared for any sort of breakdown.

Q: Is lunch provided?
A: Yes, in addition to the fully stocked rest stops, we will be providing a mini lunch at the third rest stop. There will also be a full lunch at the finish line.

Q: Is the course relatively flat?
A: The 35 mile route has a total elevation swing of 1083 ft. There are no rated climbs on the course (The climb rating system goes from 1 to 5 with 5 being the easiest), so it’s a relatively easy ride. The first 6 miles are mostly a gentle downhill. From mile 6 to 13 you’ll climb just over 300 vertical ft.—a very easy slope. Then it’s a downgrade almost all the way to the finish. This is a great beginner’s route.

A: The 75 mile route has a total elevation swing of 4530 ft. There 3 rated climbs on the course. Just after the 23rd mile you’ll come to a level 5 climb where you ascend 200 ft. in just over 2 miles. Then you have a brief reprieve of 2 miles before the next climb—a level 4—where you’ll climb 382 vertical ft. in 4 miles. After the level 4 you’ll have an easy 1.5 miles before you come to the toughest climb on the route, a level 2 where you’ll ascend over 1,600 vertical ft. in 12 miles. Once you’ve conquered that you’re in for a treat! It’s all downhill from there—you’ll descend over 2,000 ft. during the final 30+ miles of your ride.

A: The 100 mile route has a total elevation swing of 5981 ft. There are 4 rated climbs on the course. The first 33 miles are fairly easy. Then you come to a level 3 climb where you’ll ascend 600+ ft. over the next 6 miles. After that your route merges with the 75 milers and you’ll face the level 5, level 4, & level 2 climbs mentioned above. After that it’s the same long downgrade to your finish!

Route

The Fall Tour De St George starts at Tonaquint Intermediate School.

You’ll leave the school, head south on Tonaquint Dr., and take a western loop that circles around the Bloomington Country Club Golf Course. Then you’ll merge with Man of War Rd., cross over the Virgin River and take Pioneer Rd. south to meander through the picturesque community around Sun River Parkway. From there you’ll join the Southern Utah Parkway—a seamless stretch of new road that’s perfect for riding. You’ll follow the Parkway around the southern end of town and brush against Arizona.

Area Info

Southern Utah’s climate features bright sunshine, low annual precipitation, clean air, and the wide daily temperature range only found in a desert. Best known for its mild winters and golf courses, St George is quickly becoming a hot spot for its diverse selection of outdoor activities including cycling, running, hiking, rock-climbing, swimming, & canyoneering.

Cycling has taken this once sleepy retirement community by storm and is now a vital form of tourism and recreation in the area. St George hosts a number of Road Races, Centuries, Gran Fondos, Mountain Bike Races, and Triathlons each year. SpinGeeks is proud to host many of these events.

Come on out to one of our Signature SpinGeeks Events and bring your whole family! When you’re done riding, top off your vacation with a spa treatment at one of the many spas, a quick drive to nearby Las Vegas, or just go outside and play!
