Great Outdoors Adventures is brought to you by Western Spirit Cycling, dedicated to showing everyone some of what our beautiful public lands have to offer as well as getting folks outside and away from it all.
Western Spirit Cycling was founded in 1989 by a charismatic bike rider named Lu Warner. Ashley Korenblat bought Western Spirit in 1997 and since then has spent many days riding unknown trails creating the plethora of trips that Western Spirit now offers. Ashley is a graduate of Dartmouth and Tuck Business School, a former bike racer, former Wall Street captive and possessor of entrepreneurial spirit. She was president of Merlin during the titanium mountain bike heyday and served as the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) President working to sustain trail availability to everyone. Combine all that with the desire for a Moab lifestyle and an alternative view of a fulfilling career path, and you have the perfect recipe for the owner of a cycling tour company.
The office staff is a group of people who are passionate about the outdoors and are familiar with what you will experience on a Great Outdoors Adventures trip.
The guides are the heart of our company. Our guides love what they do and are dedicated to providing you with a memorable vacation. Each of them has received extensive training in backcountry travel, cooking, natural history and first aid, not to mention their cycling and mechanical skills. They are committed to the outdoors and have a great deal of knowledge and experience. Their attention to every detail leaves you free to enjoy the riding.
