    Pretty much 8:30 and 10:30 give or take 30minutes across the board. You can give each shuttle a call and see if they have any shuttles booked at different times with open seats.

    Also, call them. I was able to get a noon shuttle up to LPS last month.

    Thanks Jwind. Looking at pictures of the campsites they don't appear to be very far from the water, but maybe it's very rocky or vertical or something?

    The Deschutes river here in Bend is always pretty darn freezing cold, even in August. I'm reluctant to say that i'm used to it, because i always hate how cold it is, but in any case i'm not spoiled by warm water. I'm sure the Colorado is colder than i'd like to swim in just for the pleasure of it, but i could probably stand a few quick dips just to wash off.

    Glad to know about the shower options in town.
    Bend, OR

    It's not that they are not close, you'll be tromping through the willywacks. It's just that the brush is often thick along the river or the muck is enough to eat your legs. Never showered at the bike shops, but the showers at the aquatic center are very clean and nice.

    Need some help planning a last minute trip to Moab next week. I will be in Colorado for a wedding and will have May 13-17 free. Ive always wanted to ride Moab so this is my chance. Since this was kind of last minute I haven't had a lot of time to research so sorry for all the questions. I will be by myself and would like to ride at least 2 days as well as do some hiking/exploring around Arches and Canyonlands. I am an advanced XC intermediate downhill rider. I will be renting a bike. I know that I would like to ride as much of the Whole Enchilada that's open. Do they run shuttles during the week at this time? Any other recommended trails that I should ride? I figured I would ride SR but I am open to any other suggestions. Also I would like to camp while I am there. Any suggested areas to camp? Ive seen Sandflats mentioned on here but that's it. Finally should I bring flats or clipless shoes? Thanks

    I don't have the answers. All I know was when I tried to access the Canyonland PDF Map that I just looked at two nights ago, all I got was an error "Because of the federal government shutdown, all national parks are closed and National Park Service webpages are not operating. For more information, go to www.doi.gov." Sheesh, they even took the web pages down. Trying to save the power consumption?

    Any idea about Canyonland? It's in my plan to ride White Rim in a Day after Outerbike. Would be bummed if we couldn't get in due to the gubmints shutdown.

    National Park is closed.there are some other long routes in the county that could be put together pretty easily and would be comparable.

    Our group got the whole thing last Thursday, then it snowed Thurs night & they were only going up to Kokopelli by Fri / Saturday. Hazard may be good to go if they dont get another storm I'm guessing.

    Moab Trip Planner

    Headed out there this weekend. First question is there a good spot to take the dog swimming?

    What's a good non bike activity / hike / check out the scenery after a ride?

    Will we need a 4x4 truck? Or will we be fine in our Impreza?

    How exposed is ups/lps? My wife and I are competent experienced riders - just wondering if she'll be waking "too much" if we go for TWE or as high up as we can get?

    Thanks and can't wait!

    I'm wondering too. How much snow/rain did Moab get out of this last storm system, as we've gotten a decent amount of moisture in Park City, enough so the trails aren't rideable. Definitely hoping to get as high as possible on TWE also.

    Update on trail conditions for the weekend of the 28th? Is everything snowed in down there?

    Mostly interested in Sovereign and Amasa Back.

    I've been told that amassa and ahab are good. I would call poison spider bike shop, they will have the facts.
    I tried sovereign today, from Willow Springs: unrideable due to mud. By the weekend it will be worse.

    I'm planning a Moab trip for the first week of April 2014, will most of the trails be open by that time? I am really hoping to do The Whole Enchilada, but I guess it depends on the weather. Are there any other fast fun downhill trails that I should include on this trip? I don't mind climbing to get there.

    I don't think the Whole Enchilada is fully open till like June? Someone can correct me if I'm mistaken since I've only done Porcupine down. You might be able to do UPS/LPS down but I doubt you can do the higher stuff in April.

    Other stuff you might be interested in, Amassa Back, Captain Ahab, Mag 7 and lots of others. Hit Utah Mountain Biking - Trails, Information, Repairs and The Skid Map for more reading

    Headed to Moab this weekend. I know arriving in Moab late on a Thursday night is not ideal for finding camping, however, that's my only option for this trip. Leaving Denver around 430, figure I will be there by 11. If I want to camp somewhere that I can ride from where would you suggest? I know there is Sand Flats camping and slickrock, what are the chances of finding a spot? What about Kane Creek and Amassa Back? Open to other ideas as well.

    I wouldn't even mess with Sand Flats, if I were you. There is much better camping along Kane Creek Road before it turns up toward Amasa Back. The camping area is called King's Bottom, right on the Colorado River. If that's full, you could try along the Potash Road, directly across the river (to get there head north out of town, near the entrance to Arches National Park, and watch for the signed turn on the left). If you don't find anything there (you probably will - I've arrived late on Friday on Memorial Day weekend and found spots available down there), head north toward I-70, pick a dirt road to turn off onto, and help yourself. Anything not signed "Private" is pretty much open-use BLM land. Have fun in Moab!

    I should add that you can ride from any of those camping areas. Along Kane Creek Road you can get to Amasa Back or Moab Rim. From Potash you can get to Poison Spider or the Portal (which I wouldn't recommend climbing, personally). From the BLM land north of town, you would have numerous options.
