Come road biking to the mecca of mountain biking! While we all know about Moab’s legendary trails, our roads are equally epic. Instead of travelling to some far off island or battling traffic with hundreds of others, come to the desert southwest to experience the other side of Moab. We’ll base out of one of our favorite downtown hotels, dine at our favorite restaurants and most importantly, take you on our favorite road rides.

Springtime in Moab is truly breathtaking – the snowcapped La Sals frame our amazing red rock landscape and down in the valley the flowers and fruit trees are blooming everywhere. Our rides will take us on some of most amazing roads anywhere, challenging our early season fitness and getting some much needed sunshine on our winter coats. Led by passionate, local guides that have made Moab their home they’ll share our favorite routes and take care of all the details to make the days run smoother than your new ceramic bearings.  

While these trips are more about the riding and getting in some quality early season miles, there won’t be any scheduled “workouts” or night lectures about intervals and wattage. Don’t worry though, the soreness in your legs and the hunger at the end of the day will prove you have met your goals. We’ll make sure of that.

Moab Road Camp

DAY 1 

We start the Moab Road Camp by riding next to the Colorado River, on Scenic Road 279 (the Potash Road). This is the perfect warm up for the week. We’ll pass underneath the towering 300 foot cliffs of the famous Wall Street climbing area and view some of the most accessible Indian art in Moab—right from our bikes. This is the only relatively flat ride we’ll have all week, but certainly one of the most beautiful you’ll find anywhere. TOTAL MILEAGE: 42 miles

 

DAY 2

Today we will ride Scenic Road 313 out to Deadhorse State Park. This out-and-back classic is one that many pro cyclists claim as one of their favorite rides in the country. We head right out of town on Moab’s newest gift to cyclists—our 8-mile long Moab Canyon bike path. This will take us past Arches National Park and right to 313 where we will continue our climb up to the park’s famous overlook. The ride back home is certainly easier, but no less exhilarating! TOTAL MILEAGE: 70 miles, optional 30 miles, ELEVATION GAIN: 2500 feet

 

DAY 3

Today we will be riding into Arches National Park. This is another gem of a ride right out of the hotel’s front door. What it lacks in miles it makes up for in climbing—and VIEWS! Don’t underestimate the dual climbs up to Balanced Rock and then on to Devil’s Garden and the end of the road. Thankfully it’s one of the most beautiful road rides on earth—so you’ll have something to let your mind wander to. TOTAL MILEAGE: 47 miles, ELEVATION GAIN: 3600 feet

 

DAY 4

Today’s ride is top 10. In the World. That’s the word on the street from enthusiasts who have travelled the better part of their adult lives looking for rides like the La Sal Mountain Loop Road. It’s not a secret anymore, but we’re pretty darn proud of it. A modern day classic that will test your limits and deliver the goods. Ride from the desert to the mountains and back again. Bring your “A” game for this one. TOTAL MILEAGE: 64-100 miles, ELEVATION GAIN: 6000-8000 feet

*Option of adding an additional 2,000 feet of climbing towards Fisher Mesa

 

DAY 5

Our final day will be our little “lunchtime” ride that shows you Moab’s not-so-travelled routes as we figure eight up Spanish Valley, past Ken’s Lake and continue up to the quaint Pack Creek Ranch which borders the Manti-La Sal National Forest. While we only climb about 1,000 feet in the 10 miles to the lake, we gain an additional 1,500 feet in the remaining 6 miles to the turnaround. The cruise back down passes many agricultural areas, where a few farmers are still hanging onto their family businesses—horses, cows and even lamas are not uncommon to see on a few private ranches. Whether you coast back into town or sprint for the town line, it’s a perfect way to cap off an incredible week of riding here in Grand County. TOTAL MILEAGE: 37 miles, ELEVATION GAIN: 2500 feet
