Going to Moab Skinny Tire

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I think I'll throw the C'dale in the back of the D'star, just barely fits, and head to Moab on Saturday.

ya know, I've been to Moab several times and never saw an airport. I think I remember someone getting helicopter lifted to SLC last time I was there, but they can land anywhere.

Have fun! Don't forget to ride or at least drive the La Sal Mts.

You dog, you. Yakima doesn't make a roof rack for the plane yet?

I'll be headed back to Moab in a couple of months.

So...any input about trails there, forum crew?

Last year I took my MTB, not the roadie. I'll probably elect to do the same this year. . .Your input is greatly appreciated!!!

-life is good
