Seven Days in the Saddle: The Reward? Moab

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Mesa Arch in Canyonlands

You’ve made the trek to the mountain biking mecca and a well-deserved stop following 215 miles in the saddle. Now what’s next…stay a night or two and explore Moab.

Moab never ceases to amaze with its geographic wonder spanning slick rock domes, bowls and fins to high mesas and the La Sal Mountains’ 13,000-foot peaks. The gorge of the Colorado River provides its own beauty and recreation. And, don’t forget Arches and Canyonlands national parks…spectacular.

When Does Our Bike Season Begin? Ready to Ride?

Riding to the Gateway Hut mid-summer

Here in Southwest Colorado in spring it’s flip-flop weather one day, Sorels the next. With iffy spring conditions, summer sounds real appealing and perhaps far off. But it’s time to book your bike trip. Do you know when the huts are available?

Both the Telluride and Durango to Moab routes open in June, but dates vary due to high elevation hut locations where snow can fall and linger past the summer solstice.

Telluride to Moab: June 2, 2012 

(High elevation huts include Last Dollar Hut at 11,000 feet and Spring Creek Hut at 9,100 feet)

Durango to Moab: June 15, 2012 

(High elevation huts include Bolam Pass Hut at 11,411 feet and Black Mesa Hut at 10,625 feet)

Remember, too, when booking your hut trip to keep in mind winter can make an early appearance, as early as late August. But late September is generally the time we warn riders most about potential snowfall. Be prepared!

Our summer season is short, but oh so sweet!
