Bike in Arches National Park and see the natural sights

Best of Moab Mountain Bike

5 days
$1,543 USD

Signature slickrock trails offer challenging, if fun rides for all levels of riders, marked by seemingly endless singletrack that shade each day. Moab, Utah’s Hottest New Trails. Even if you’ve never visited Moab (pop. 5000) before, you’ve very likely seen it. About 245-miles south of Salt Lake City, Moab and its dramatic surroundings served as the backdrop for countless Golden Era Westerns. Moab’s history is by turns rich as varied: From a Mormon outpost on the Spanish Trail (1800’s), to Wild-West era outlaw haunt or lair, to base for hard-rock miners and rare mineral prospectors.

  • Where does the tour start and end?

    The tour starts and ends in Moab, specifically at the Moab Cyclery shop. The tour begins at 9am on the first day of the tour. The tour ends with your return by around 4pm on the last day.

  • How long is the tour? How many days cycling?

    The tour is 5 days long with 5 days of cycling.

  • Can you tell me about the food on tour?

    Food is a big part of the experience. The guides prepare all of your meals on the camping trip. Expect three delicious meals a day consisting entirely of freshly prepared foods. These include fresh organic fruits and vegetables as well as meats. There will also be energy snacks aboard the support vehicles. Don’t be surprised if your guides purchase fresh fruits and healthy snacks throughout the day while you are out riding. They may just show up on the trail with a local treat!

    Many guests are vegans or vegetarians, whom the tour operator is more than happy to accommodate. If you have special diet requirements or limitations, just let us know when you sign-up and the tour operator will work with you to meet your needs.

  • Is there phone reception in the areas visited?

    Cell service for this tour is spotty. Verizon is the best service to have for this area.

  • Do I need to bring my own camping gear?

    Camping gear may be rented or you may bring your own. The tour operator's camp gear package includes a three-man tent with ground tarp, sleeping bag, bag liner, full size pillow, raised cot and self-inflating ground pad.

  • Are there any limits on what I should bring?

    Luggage is limited to one small soft-shelled suitcase or medium/large sized duffel bag (no heavier than 40 pounds). Please ensure your luggage container is water repellant. The tour operator also suggests bringing a hydration daypack or small backpack for valuables.

  • What's the weather like?

    You will be riding and sleeping at elevations over 4,000 ft. (1219m) for this trip. Weather predictions in this area are often unreliable due to the elevation, so it is best to be prepared for cold evenings and inclement weather.

  • How should I prepare for the trip?

    For optimal physical preparation, the tour operator recommends that you ride at least several hours per week during the month preceding the tour. During the tour, you will be on your bike every day, and they can assure you that an unprepared bottom is a sore one! If you can’t ride your bike or don’t own one, take a spin class at your local gym a few times a week.

  • What is the operator's environmental stance?

    They don’t just preach environmental awareness, they live it. The tour operator recycles 90% of our waste and run their LEED Platinum facilities with solar and wind power. Additionally, their facilities are net-zero energy (they produce more energy than is consumed) which makes them the only commercial outfitter in the world who is net positive energy.

  • What's the tour like?

    The tour is classified as moderate/active with a Fitness Level: 2-4 and Technical Level: 2-4 Biking. The tour is suitable for families with older kids, solos, couples & friends.

  • Are bikes available to hire?

    Yes. Make your trip as comfortable as possible on the body, as simple as possible for traveling, and hassle-free on tour. By choosing to rent a bike, the tour operator will fit you with the newest, highest quality gear in the industry.

    The tour operator provides only high-end bicycles from Santa Cruz and Specialized. They replace their rental fleet each season to ensure all rentals meet their high standards. All of the mountain bikes are equipped with full suspension frames and disc brakes designed for a smooth, comfortable ride.

  • What can be expected while traveling in the pandemic?

    Confident and Comfortable Traveling
    Choosing when you’re ready to travel is different for everyone. The Tour Operator wants you to feel confident and in safe hands traveling with them on a worry-free, fun adventure in the great outdoors. Below you’ll find the additional precautions that have been put in place.

    Food Preparation
    Trip Leaders have always been trained in food handling safety and will be receiving additional training on CDC and WHO safety guidelines. In addition, they will be wearing face coverings and gloves while preparing your meals.

    Inns Tours
    Over the past 25+ years gourmet 5-star meals have been cooked for guests on tours. The Tour Operator is taking it back to their roots, where it all started, and will be cooking culinary delights for the inns tours, for the foreseeable future.

    Vans and Gear
    From bike grips to tents — every piece of gear and equipment that needs it will get a daily cleaning. All common surface areas will be wiped down multiple times a day and vehicles will be fogged between tours.

    Preparedness & Support

    Staying Educated and Keeping You Informed
    The Tour Operator is always monitoring what’s happening and how it impacts the trips and this pandemic is no exception. They are using the latest recommendations from the CDC and WHO, along with consulting local authorities where they travel, to guide the decisions for your tours. You’ll be contacted with any important information related to your departure.

    Certified and Trained Trip Leaders
    Trip leaders have always been required to go through training to receive their Food Handler Safety Training card. They learn about foodborne illness, risk factors, food hazards and sanitization protocols. Additionally, the Tour Operator are one of the few tour companies to require trip leaders to be WFR (Wilderness First Responder) certified. WFR certification is an intensive 72-80 hour course taught over 8-10 days. Trip Leaders learn how to properly identify and manage life-threatening injuries and illnesses that could appear in a wilderness setting (more than 60 minutes away from definitive care), and also includes a lot of hands-on skill practice, case studies, practical scenarios, evacuation planning and procedures, and other aspects of long-term patient care involving wilderness context and situational awareness.

    Arriving Feeling Your Best
    Please make sure you are feeling well when you come on your adventure. If you are sick and running a fever, please stay home for your own health and safety of others.

    Face Coverings
    Guests are recommended to bring their preferred face covering and will be asked to wear them at a minimum, while traveling in the vans. While being outdoors is your choice. The Tour Operator will do their best to have hand sanitizer available, but it’s always good to bring your own.

    Safe in the Outdoors

    Small Groups
    The Tour Operator has always focused on small groups, so this is nothing new for them. They will continue to keep groups small with parties of 7 or less and will be following each state’s guidelines for group capacity, if any.

    Outdoor Social Distancing
    Itineraries will be adjusted to avoid all visitor’s centers, tourist attractions or other crowded places to avoid crowds. Route options will be modified also to bypass the most “at risk” areas the tours travel through, if necessary.

    Private Tours
    The idea of taking your friends or family somewhere cool and amazing is actually pretty easy. Tell us what you’re thinking and we’ll make it happen. Any trip on the website can run as a private tour. Private tours allow the ultimate and safe bonding experience.

    Culinary Delights Prepared by your Trip Leaders
    Preparing all meals for the guests, including those on inns tours, will allow guests to be in an environment away from crowds and will have less concern. The Tour Operator is working with hotel partners to come up with a solution to set up an outdoor kitchen and bring you all their favorite meals.

    Trip Transportation
    The Tour Operator will make certain you have enough space when taking a lift in the van and the choice to do what you want every day. If necessary, they’ll use even more vans to provide more room between travelers. We know what’s right for one person may not be right for another. On select itineraries, you will have the option to drive your own vehicle on the tour rather than ride in the van.

Great trip with our outstanding guides Will and Kathi. They were excellent riders who adhered the our group of mountain bikers. We were able to do two challenging rides per day, and we ate great at every meal. Our group had some shredders and some riders who were less experienced, and the tour worked great for all of us!

I just completed the Best of Moab mtb camping trip with some friends. Our guides Will and Kate were outstanding. They laid out a challenging itinerary for the week while keeping us safe, comfortable, and well fed. They were very accommodating to our requests throughout the week while doing a great job of keeping us informed and entertained.
