Hi everyone.

We are planning on going to MOAB for some awesome ridding and climbing. We plan to leave Denver on Thursday NOV 15th around 3pm. We will gather at the wooly mammoth lot under the JJ sign at 3 pm on Thursday. We will be hosting some awesome rides in the mornings and some climbing in the afternoons. Tentative rides will be: Amasaback, PP RIM, slick rock, or anything we decide to ride that day. Return is planned for Sunday the 18th in the evening. We well be camping near the sand flats in MOAB. Anyone is invited male or female, however we do require plenty of experience mountain biking. (level of climbing does not matter).
It should be a super fun weekend.
Hope to see you all there.


Drive Thursday at 3 pm.  Arrive to Moab around 8 pm  have some food, set up camp and maybe ride the practice loop of slick rock at 9pm.  So bring some light if you want to do this ride. (technical level 4 ish)

Friday. 09:00 Amasaback (technical level around 6+). great overall trail. it will challenge your skills and guts in some spots. One of the most fun trails in MOAB.  In the afternoon If enough people is interested  we can get another  ride in or climb at wall street or some other spot.

Saturday. This is the big day. I am reserving a shuttle to ride as much of the whole enchilada as possible, tentative time 0800 am. This is an epic trail super fast and can be very technical depending on how hard you want to make it.  (technical level 5+ to 7+) The shuttle is 25 bucks.  The ride should take no longer than 4 hours but lets plan  for 5 just in case bike issues.  Stopping only in designated areas for picture taking and lunch as this ride is designed to ride super fast and dirty.!!!!  Bring no less than 2 tubes, enough patching equipment. If we are not bit up quite enough after ridding the enchilada, we will climb some.  The trail got some snow  over the past few days so weather dependent we will run this or not.  If we cant ride this trail we will find something else.

Sunday,  We will pack up in the morning,  have some b-fast  find a sweet and short ride.  Planning to head back to Denver  around 1 pm

If you plan to drive wand meet us there,  here is my number  7203130116.  Gio

    tThe rides that I have suggested are a bit technical. I would rate them around 6/10. Everyone can ride them at their own pace if they desire. In order to keep the group more cohesive while ridding I would suggest to have experience ridding. The only ride that is set on stone is "The whole enchilada" ( as far up as the shuttle can get us and costs 20 dollars for the shuttle on Saturday and weather dependent). As far as climbing we will keep it moderate and easy.

    What a great two for the price of one idea! I hope there will be discussion of how technical the rides will be and what the candidate routes are for climbing (not Indian Creek, I would hope).
