There is more to Moab than just the best mountain biking in the world. Once the hideout of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and now the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Moab is a town steeped in history and surrounded by spectacular desert. Likewise this book is more than just a guide to forty-eight heart-pounding rides. It is a cultural experience, a memoir, an explosion of ideas. Along with practical information on slickrock- and sand-riding techniques, emergency services, and trail etiquette, local guide Lee Bridgers has assembled a collection of irreverent stories about colorful local characters, his concerns for the landscape, and his own experiences on the trail. He also includes descriptions of geological anomalies, Native American rock art, and native plants, offering an in-depth picture of a desert town turned mountain biking mecca. Inside you will find:
detailed mile-by-mile ride descriptions
GPS-quality, digitally designed shaded relief maps
ratings for physical and technical difficulty.Wherever you ride and whatever your skill level, let Mountain Biking Moab be your guide to this mountain biking paradise.
