Sunday September 13th

6:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m.

Breakfast in the hotel.

Today is mountain bike riding day!  Bike clothes are fine, but NO BIKE SHOES WITH CLEATS -- sneakers will be much better today.  Bring your own helmet or one will be provided for you -- as you prefer.

7:30 a.m. -- We are off mountain biking!  Your road bike stays at the hotel -- a mountain bike will be provided for you.  This is mountain biking for BEGINNERS (like me!)  If you already have serious mountain biking skills a different route will be provided for you.

Lunch is near the hotel.


1:30 p.m.

There is a very flat and beautiful afternoon road bike ride -- entirely optional of course.  Two routes:

20 miles

40 miles


If you don't want to go bike riding, we will offer an optional afternoon trip to Arches National Park.  We'll drive you to the trailhead to Delicate Arch.  It's about a 3.4 mile hike (total -- there and back).  Can be done in sneakers or hiking boots, but definitely NOT flip flops or sneakers.  Bring a water bottle with you.

7:00 p.m.

Dinner together in Moab.  Dress is casual everywhere in town, but this is a nicer place -- you probably don't want to wear that T-shirt with the chain grease stains on it.

8:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

A very few people will be pedaling tomorrow.  (There's a ride inside Arches National Park for advanced riders only.)  If you are NOT pedaling tomorrow please bring your bike to the truck before you go to sleep.

You can be sure that there will be last minute changes to this itinerary

as we get closer to ride day -- check back here any time for the latest info.
