The Hoodoo 500 is the most scenic, most challenging, and most rewarding ultra-cycling event on the Planet (in spite of claims by others). The route passes through or around three National Parks, three National Monuments and several Utah State Parks. The scenery varies from majestic cliffs and striking red rock hoodoos to aspen and pine forests and high mountain meadows. You’ll ride up mountains over 10,000′ high. You might get hot, you’ll likely get cold. Odds are the wind will at one time be in your face, and another time at your back. You’ll experience many highs and maybe some lows on this amazing journey. And you’ll love every minute! (At least after the fact.)
Planet Ultra is excited to offer a 300-mile option; a wonderful introduction to ultra-cycling which covers the first 120 or so and the last 175 or so miles of the Hoodoo 500 route. A little less for those who want to test the waters before diving in! Still plenty challenging and incredibly scenic; and a great way to conquer new goals and set new ones for a go at the Hoodoo 500.
Planet Ultra is also excited to offer the Hoodoo 500 Stage Event – the entire route covered in three days, solo or 2-person relay-style. The fastest combined time wins!
