Cycling the "El Cap to El Cap" Heritage Bike Route

One of the undiscovered adventures in our region is cycling a seldom traveled road, Hwy 54 from Van Horn to Guadalupe Mountains National Park.  Dubbed the "El Capitan to El Capitan" ride, it begins at the recently restored 1930 Hotel El Capitan and ends in the shadow of El Capitan, the iconic symbol of Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The relatively easy route (as long as the wind isn't blowing!) is 55 miles of incredibly scenic and unspoiled land, with mountain views and desert scenery.  We've got a whole page on the route's features and history, plus a slide show of views and an elevation chart, here!
