Moab Rim Ride

12 Mar

I was so excited to do the Moab Rim Ride at the end of the month but sadly can’t make it happen. So, I thought I’d go down the weekend before and do it. If anybody has a scheduling conflict with the original date or just wants some long hours in on the bike come down and join me on the 22nd.

I stole this pic from Dave H.

No rules. I plan on stashing water and some fried chicken at about the 6 hour mark off the upper road to Gemini Bridges the night before so I don’t die like Kenny almost did last year. I’ll be leaving the park at 6 a.m. in the morning on Saturday. I’ll have a GPS with some of the trail tracked but not all of it.

It’ll be fun and painful and surely one of the epic rides of 2008. I really have no idea what to expect so it’ll prolly end up being a good story. You don’t want to miss out on that do you?

    I’m still so out of shape that I’m sure I couldn’t do the Rim in a day. I’ll actually be getting into Moab on that Sunday to work on my fitness for a few days. One of these days I’ll be fit again and doing epics.

    dug-The story is always more entertaining when you’re involved.

    Rob-I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to do it either but I’m gonna give it a try and see how far I get.

    I may be goin down Saturday morning with Chris Holley. We’re plan on starting at 191 Gemini TH and doing the blue dot, Gold Bar, PS, Pot Ash Road back to the GTH loop. I did the middle 6 hours last year two weeks b4 the race and decided it was too much for me. Hat’s off to those that finish this bugger.

    It’s looking more like the 29th. might not work for me either. I’ll most likely come ride it with you. I’ve order some gps files for 7 mile canyon and metal masher. I should be able to put together the whole ride on my garmin.
