Our Death Valley National Park bike tour rides through a formidable landscape. It is a below-sea-level desert basin surrounded by ragged mountains, salt flats, extreme temperatures and endless sands. Death Valley is also a place of almost supernatural beauty that must be experienced first hand.
We have created a tour through this wondrous terrain. In the late winter and into early spring a colorful bloom of rare wildflowers can occur after a “wet” winter bringing life to this seemingly lifeless wasteland. The weather in February and March in Death Valley is generally warm and dry with temperatures in the upper 70’s to low 80’s and cool, clear nights in the mid 50’s. The dark night skies in Death Valley are perfect for stargazing.
International Dark Sky Park
Death Valley National Park is designated as a Certified IDA International Dark Sky Park. The skies here are affected by only the smallest amounts of light pollution classifying it at the highest level of IDA designation and star-filled skies, the “Gold Tier”. Astronomical objects seen there are available only to some of the darkest locations across the globe.
The Early Spring “Super Bloom”
It does not happen every early spring, but every now and then after a “wet” winter Death Valley comes to life in what is called a “super bloom” where a seemingly dead landscape explodes with millions of wildflowers of all varieties totally transforming the desert into a kaleidoscope of color.
