Moab In The News

From The Watch:
TELLURIDE, Sept. 17, 4:05 p.m. – The fourth annual Mountains-to-the-Desert ride, the autumn cycling season’s last hurrah, takes to the open road on Saturday, Sept. 22.

The supported ride, a fundraiser for the local nonprofit Just for Kids Foundation that seeks to enrich the lives of regional children through support of local and regional kids programs, has in the past been branded as a punishing end to the local cycling season. This year’s event boasts a kinder, gentler image, however, thanks to the addition of lower-mileage options. But it’s only slightly kinder and gentler.

This year riders have four different ride options: Norwood to La Sal (69 miles), Norwood to Moab (101 miles), Telluride to La Sal (101 miles) or the classic Mountains-to-the-Desert Telluride to Moab ride (133 miles).

When you finish the ride, come on into town and let Acme Shuttle hook you up with some fun, shorter, day rides! We'll shuttle you to the trailheads of classics you won't want to miss, like Porcupine Rim and the Slickrock Trail. Good luck to all participants in the Mountains-to-the-Desert Ride!
