    Moab guide book

    Anybody got a recommendation for a Moab guide book? Also, what's the word on beer in Utah. I've heard buy in Colorado since Utah doesn't allow the good stuff but then I've also heard there is a good chance of getting a ticket for hauling beer across the state line. What's the official word?

    Just about every store in town sells a guide book. Bring alcahol across state line and risk a ticket, or stop by the state liquor store in town and load up. Two breweries in town also. You won't have any trouble getting drunk in Utah, if that is your pleasure.

    Also, a quick search here will lead you to a few threads on these subjects.
    It's not an adventure until someone BLEEDS!

    +1 for Rider Mel's. They are $15.00 at any Moab bike shop, but you really don't need a guidebook. There are beaucoup bikers around. If you need directions-just ask.

    I was mainly interested in the guide book for some reading material between now and then. I have a map of the area from visiting in 1999. I suppose an updated one is probably a good idea.

    Lee Bridger's "Mountain Biking Moab" is another option to satisfy "reading material". He includes several essays from his POV of Moab, mountain biking, and the world. His 1st edition stirred up some controversy with his less than diplomatic reviews of local restaurants...but hey, colorful people are a part of Moab!

    Rider Mel

    One more vote for Rider Mel's book. I have ridden Moab before and got the book anyway. It was informative, and really liked the 'yellow pages' section in the back with all the numbers and addresses of all the businesses.

    Hi, that's me!

    Howdy and thanks for recommending my book. I'm glad it worked for you. I try not to get involved in promoting my products online but it was nice to see others providing positive reviews. I'm happy to help out by answering questions.

    Cheers!

    Oh please! You are always on here whoring out your book several times a day! Just look at your post count!

    Just kidding of course.

    We have used Rider Mel's book for years. Never steered us wrong. Well written and easy to follow.

    Well, 'cept for that one time we got lost on Flat Pass and ended up on Steelbender which is NOT a bike trail. No big deal though, it was a cool 95 degrees that day.
    This may or may not (probably not) have been Mel's fault.
