    I assume you mean Bryce Canyon?

    I had to give you a little spelling grief...my wife is a school teacher! Anyway, there is a lot of amazing riding in and around Bryce Canyon National Park. You have to drive through Red Canyon to get to the north entrance of the park. Red Canyon is home to several great rides: Casto Canyon, Red Canyon, and Thunder mountain, to name a few. Of course, Brian Head and it's amazing downhill rides are west of the park, and easily reachable by car from there. June might be a little iffy for Brian Head, though. The southern end of the state has received unbelievable amounts of water this year (over 250 inches of snow so far this year at Brian Head Resort). Finally, the Virgin River Rim trail is a little ways west and south of Bryce. I don't know where you're staying (camping in the park?), but Panguitch is a good central point for a lot of these rides...no bike services there (that I'm aware of), but Cedar City has some bike shops, and Brian Head has some in the summer. You can find some detailed info on all these rides and more at www.utahmountainbiking.com . Go to the Southern Plateau section...most of those rides are in the general area of Bryce Canyon. Good luck, have fun, and don't make us come rescue you!
