Did this iconic mountain bike ride late in the morning in November, not too hot or crowded. Saw some e-bikes on this ride for the first time ever.

The ride that made Moab famous for biking. Certainly one-of-a-kind. Pick a less busy day for this ride. Take in the side trails for view points

If you love biking on the slickrock, this is a must do. Even around moab, there is nothing that gives the amount of slickrock riding as you will find here.

You can do it but you may want to save your energy for the trail. It is about 3 miles from downtown with some pretty good ascents.
