bwaaa haaa haaa. Sorry Matt. Most of us old out of shape guys will have a hard enough time climbing out of our chairs to get a beer at the campground when the one we have runs dry.

I'm debating welding my bullit up and putting my boxxer on it and bringing it down. I'll update if I actully get a bike together that I can ride uphill. I would like to peddle around moab for once. :headbang:

I can't go to Moab without a bike. It would almost be like going to Moab without a Cruiser :) I doubt I'll be able to get out there before Wednesday afternoon so I don't know where biking will fit into my schedule - maybe a least a lap on Slickrock Wed evening? Last year a group of us hitched a ride up Sands Flats to the top of Porcupine rim then enjoyed the killer downhill back to the campground.

I could be convinced to bring my bike. I have a pretty decent mountain bike. Every year i think, "This year I'll do some mtn biking in Moab," but then I never do. If we could plan something, I'd be up for it.

I keep thinking about it. I suspect some folks are going to pre-run some trails. But, I've never been riding in Moab. I need to get a trailer hitch bike mount if I do this. Otherwise, it's a hike somewhere. Perry what day are you hiking?

Matt, i'm planning on hiking wed to catch the sunset. From what I remember reading, the hike is only 1.5 miles. I'll do some research beforehand(might camp there friday and sat night...) Figure it's the least I can do after reading Desert Solitaire :beer: .

So is anyone else bringing their Mtn. bike? If not, I'm leaving mine at home.

Sorry about that Matt,

I was planning on bringing my bike, but it seems like one more thing to drag out there. As much as I would like to...

It sounds like we are going to pre-run Poison Spider Mesa on Tuesday and probably something on Monday (I wonder when/where we are going to meet). I suspect that just getting in some hiking would work.

Thanks though.

Perry,

Depending on what's going on, I may join you.

Last time I was in Moab, we rented a couple of well equipped bikes to do slickrock. That is always an option if you dont feel like dragging your bike out for only a day of riding. Just bring your helmet and spandy pants. I am planning to hike on Wednesday. Not sure where yet. Gotta check out this place Perry has in mind.

My friend and I are biking porcupine rim on Wednesday morning if anyone wants to join us. He'll also be riding other days as well.
