    www.utahmountainbiking.com

    Best website for Utah rides. Don't know that you would need a guide unless you really felt like spending the money. Most trails are straight forward and the website is very good.

    Wow, there are A LOT of shuttle companies and guide services in Utah. I have never used the guide services, but I have heard great things about http://www.mountainbikebuddies.com/

    ucme4dk is right, though. It's easy to get around and find the trails, almost all the best riding is close to small towns with hotels and good restaurants, or in the case of Moab, hotels and mediocre restaurants. Camping is always an option as well.

    If you give us an idea of where you are going, we can help you plan your rides.

    New question here.

    Begun the research last night. Don't have any idea where to stay or ride, just wanna go to Utah and ride. We are a group of 8 to 10 mbikers living in Puerto Rico. Once we pick a place to stay, which should be close to good trails, will work out the package with a local travel agent.

    More info and advice will be welcome...

    Thanks guys for your replies.

    Never booked a trip with them but I've heard great things about Western Spirit, http://www.westernspirit.com/

    If you are coming in the spring or fall I'd suggest doing a Fruita, CO, Moab, UT, and St George, UT trip, really easy to fill 3 great days of riding in each place. There is great riding all over the state but those 3 are by far my favorites for great riding and scenery in the area.

    Hey Ciclismo, make sure you come ride St. George, Utah. I'd be happy to show you and your group around at no cost. Always happy to show some fellow latinos around. What time of the year do you plan on coming? You can ride year round here, but June thru August are very hot months. Spring and fall make for better riding times.

    ... and if we just ...

    The plans are to be there for 10 days during july 08', no specific dates yet. What temperatures are we talking about here? Cause here in Puerto Rico we are used to very hot and humid trails.

    July is going to be upper 100's. We have been at 114 several days this week. With almost no humidity so you'll be drinking water twice as much as normal. July is hot.
    I'm UNIQUE... just like everybody else.

    I did a trip coming from Western NC to St. George this past spring with a buddy. We had an incredible trip. Everything went perfectly. I did some research and we went with Mountain Bike Buddies. It is not the typical guide service. I think it is much better!! We got a great rate at a St. George hotel and had 3+ days of incredible riding and conversation with Mark Erickson, the owner of MBB. St. George ended up being a great base as well, great food, easy to get around and very nice people. We already planning our next trip through Mark for fall of 08' with a group of 6-8 people. Look him up on the Web, the guy is a gem of a guy, great stories, super personable, and very accommodating and has great knowledge of the trails.and very reasonable for both the service and good rental bikes as well.
