Thread: Moab, baby

  1. #1

    Default Moab, baby

    The latest Bike mag has a list of "33 Greatest Trails in North America". These should look familiar to the Moab crew (granted, we didn't fully cover Kokopelli):
    Best Descent: Porcupine Rim, Moab
    Best Flow: Zippety Do Da, Fruita (Honorable Mention)
    Best Fully Committed Trail: Kokopelli Trail, Fruita to Moab
    Best Climb: Amasa Back, Moab (Honorable Mention)
    Best Destination: Moab (Honorable Mention)
    Also found I had pretty good coverage of a few others in their list:
    Best Fully Committed Trail: Monarch Crest, CO (Honorable Mention)
    Best Lift-Served Trail: A-Line, Whistler
    Best Climb: Teocali Ridge, Crested Butte
    Best Climb: Black Mountain, Pisgah (Honorable Mention)
    Best Destination: Crested Butte
    Best Destination: Sedona, AZ (Honorable Mention)
    Best Must-Ride Trail: Dirt Merchant, Whistler (Honorable Mention)
    Best Tight 'n Twisty Trail: Deadman's Gulch, Crested Butte
    Best Tight 'n Twisty Trail: Cut Yer Bars, Whistler (Honorable Mention)
    Trail of the Year 2008: 401 Trail, Crested Butte (Honorable Mention)
    Trail of the Year 2008: Monarch Crest, Salida (Honorable Mention)
    My first thought was "Dude, you've been living right!" Then I realized I've hit 16 of the listed 33 - less than half, so now I figure I need to get out and ride some of these other sweet trails. Sure, the glass may be half empty, but there's a fresh sixer in the fridge!

    Ah...the ever growing list. Can't wait to mark a few more off.

    Shall we Rage? I'll have a 12 pack waiting...
    You'd understand if you know what I was talking about.

    Short bus is ready- somebody pull the trigger!

    Believe in yourself? Well sure, of course. But be aware that "believing in myself" has been the root cause of most of my injuries.

    After reading the actual article in Bike mag, I have moved Crested Butte to the top of my list.

    Rage, what's it like?

    I just realized I should not have asked that question. Rather, I should save it for the next time we are enjoying some flavorful mugs due to my expectation that your answer will not be concise...
