    Multi-day ride in Moab area without self-support?

    I read a lot about the Grand Loop. Most people do it self-supported. It is out of question that the scenery is fantastic and also the track seems to be a good combination of easy rolling to cover some distance and more technical sections for the fun of biking.
    However, is there a way to get around the self-support? I hate to carry more than let's say 10 pounds. I love to have a (cold) shower and a decent dinner in the evening, and fresh breakfast in the morning. Here in the Alps in central Europe a small backpack is all you need and after a day in the mountains (if you do it right, without any signs of civilization), there is always some mountain hut or some other place to stay for the night and to refill the food supplies.
    I found some multi-day organized trips online, but they mainly aim at beginners / intermediates. I have no problems with 10000 ft of climbing per day, including some hike-a-bikes.
    Are there any chances that I can organize such a trip in the Moab area? (Or somewhere else in the Southwest with a similar landscape?)
