Planet Ultra is your source for the finest century and longer events, multi-day cycling tours, and the epic Hoodoo 500 UltraMarathon Race
Our goal is to provide a fun, challenging and memorable cycling experience while fostering a healthy lifestyle and sense of camaraderie and community among motivated and adventurous bicyclists.
Planet Ultra began in 2001 with 6 double century events and a week-long hub tour in California. Over the next few years, we added a few events in California. Always looking for superior cycling experiences, we expanded our horizons into the beautiful state of Utah, with our unforgettable Tour of Southern Utah, and later the Hoodoo 500 and the Red Rock 200. In 2005 we created the King of the Mountains Century Challenge, which attracts riders from all over the country who come to tackle the three toughest Southern California Centuries.
Beginning in 2010, we're excited about the new trend of the Euro-style Gran Fondo; and we're topping off our wonderful schedule with two new events in Nevada. Truth be told, Planet Ultra was ahead of the curve, as most of our events have always been conducted in the semi-competitive spirit of a Gran Fondo, including mass starts and event timing.
