The Paradise Loop Ride has been a Shonto-area tradition since the mid-1990’s. Ride day offers a race option and a non-competitive ride, both of which are 22 mile loops that begin and end at Shonto. The ride travel north on the Tall Mountain Road (BIA 6310), to Navajo National Monument and back to Shonto on road 221. The route is very scenic, among pinon and juniper forest, and includes expansive views over the surrounding area, including vast canyons and the looming dome of Naatsisaan.
There are aid stations throughout the course and your registration also include the event t-shirt, post-race food and awards to top finishers. Camping is available on Friday night, and there will be a meal and a film for those coming in on Friday.
