This four day road bike event is held every year in early March in the beautiful Canyonlands of southern Utah. By March I'm a bit tired of riding in fog, rain, wet roads and cloudy days, Moab offers a break to sunny desert climates. The rides are 50 - 60 miles and start from town each day, some hills, some flats, up the Colorado River and down the river too. Check it out if you are looking for a winter get away with your bike. It's an easy drive from the PNW, and worth it!
