The route will follow Kokopelli’s Trail starting in Loma Colorado with some awesome side loop single track riding along the Colorado River when we pass through Rabbit Valley (Western Rim Trail). In addition, on our last day we will link the UPS, LPS and upper Porcupine Rim trail to have a 4,000′ decent to the Colorado River just outside of Moab (end).
Included with trip fee: All meals, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks, water, transportation of your camping gear to each campsite, a ride leader and transportation back to Loma (where our cars will be).
Ride format: We will begin riding from Loma on Thursday, May 12th at noon; ride approximately 40 miles each day to a new campsite, and finishing in Moab on Sunday, May 15th. It will be the rider’s responsibility to get to Loma for the start. Carpooling is always an option from the Denver area.
A support vehicle will carry your gear during the ride, so you will be riding light. Please only one duffel per person due to limited space. You are responsible for providing your own tent (or arrange to share one), a sleeping bag, a pad and personal gear. We will also provide a suggested packing list.
We will do this trip with a minimum of 10 and maximum of 20 riders, rain or shine. This is an all-inclusive fully supported trip! Trip fee for Team Evergreen Cycling members is $630.
You will be expected to bring a tuned bike and a body that can ride all day but sag is always available. A bike mechanic will be along and can help with bike repairs as needed.
