White Rim Trail, Canyonlands(UT) : November 04th & 05th 2011:

The Plan: Going to Moab, UT and mountain bike the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park for one day. The idea is to feel the terrain first and then (most likely for Spring 2012) ride the entire trail, which could take as long as 4 days.

I know that getting down there (from where we live) for just one day of riding experience could be somehow expensive, but we don't want to plan a long bike trip and in the middle of it realize we were in bad shape! or we didn't have enough food! D' u' know what I mean?

We are traveling from our home-town on Friday afternoon and gettting into Moab early at night. After a good night sleep (most likely will be camping somewhere in the desert) we will take a proteinic breakfast (most likely a couple of energy bars and gatorade) and hit the dirt road into the White Rim Trail . . . The plans, so far, goes 'til there!. We are hoping to make it back sometime in the afternoon of that same Saturday and create a vocal report: what is additionally needed for a longer trip, how much more training do we need for the whole 4 days ride, etc. etc.

Now, this link will take you to a video of the place we want to go and ride at:


These are other links I personally like a lot:

Cycling Links you should visit

1.- A small back pack to carry food and equipment while riding the bike: tools, 2 tube replacements, air pump, food, water, snacks and toilet paper.
2.- Clothing: padded shorts, 1 short sleeved t-shirt, 1 long sleeved t-shirt, a rain jacket (just in case is too cold), sweatpants (just in case is too cold).
3.- Food: Enough to keep me alive for the trip.

Shoot me an email if you want more information.
