The FJ was about to burst with camping and riding gear as we departed for Moab on Friday morning.
We barely got Yuki in the car, and we headed about 6 hours due West. After setting up camp, and a potty break (yes, this was actually the only toilet in the campground. AWESOME and hilarious!)
… we headed just across the street from our campsite to ride Moab’s well-known Slickrock Trail. It’s not my favorite, but one you gotta do every now and then.
On Saturday, after a delightful breakfast of pancakes and eggs, we headed up the Sand Flats Road to the very top of the Porcupine Rim Trail (LPS, then it turns into Porcupine).
I always get dropped on the road riding with Jeff and Yuki. Singletrack is another story though!
I have never ridden Porcupine, and I thought it was a super fun, challenging descent. No wonder people shuttle it with 5-7 inch travel bikes!! One of my new favorite Moab trails…
Then it was off to Amasa Back, and then back up the Sand Flats road to camp.
7 hours and about 55 miles later, we got back to camp. Ride time was actually a little over 5 hours
Day 3 was so epic (9 hours…) that it will get its own post… stay tuned!
