    SW Utah next week, anyone want to ride?

    Looking for locals or other travelers that just happen to be in SW Utah next week to ride with. I've ridden Goose while passing through last year, would love to hit that again, but want as much riding in a week as possible. I don't have 4wheel drive (car), so anything still muddy is a no go.
    I can ride just about anything, no big drops though.

    Let me know if you have some free time and want to ride

    I should be arriving in the area around Tuesday evening. Got a week or so before I need to head up to SLC.

    Be Happy to show you around in the evenings if you would like, we have group rides several nights a week. Definitely some good times. We can either scare the S*%& outta ya or put a big grin on your face

    Sweet, I should be in the area for about a week, so weekend rides would work fine. I can keep busy during the day on my own, but it's just much more fun with others.

    If you were me, what trails would you consider a MUST DO before I head out? I've only hit up Gooseberry and loved it. I like technical stuff, but do get a bit bored when it's slow going. A little speed here and there is nice!

    What's the best method to get ahold of you guys?

    Sunday will be the last day I'm online before I head out, after that all camping and prob no internet except for occasional stops at libraries.

    For fast, rocky, and technical descents hit up Broken Mesa, Zen, Paradise, and Barrels.....other must do's would probably include Slick Rock Swamp, LC, and Goose.

    Broken Mesa is a good time, though it isn't for the faint of heart. Already rode it twice this year but man that powerline road back to the watertank is well......Anyways it will wear you out but its pretty fun rocky descent! Definitly hit up Barrels, Zen and Paradise first

    It's gonna be mid week now before I can head out. My Grandma died last night (a blessing), funeral will prob be Monday....leaving either Tuesday or Wed morning. So first day to ride will be either Thursday or Friday.

    How's the road up to Goose? I saw not long ago it was in bad shape.

    Road to Goose isn't an issue right now, a little rutted out but what dirt road isn't in spring.

    Cedar, as in near Price?

    I'm only going to be in SW Utah, Hurricane, St. George area. If you want to head down that way we can meet up for some rides.

    I'll be arriving sometime on Thursday, staying until the following Wed.

    After that I'll be in SLC. At some point I'll be heading down to Moab if you want to ride there, or you can head up to SLC area too

    Cedar is 35mins from St. George. I go to school, so I can usually ride around 3pm on Tuseday and Thursday. But the weekend I am free all day Sunday to ride.

    UPDATE: With my Grandma passing away I've got to change my plans. If I left now I would have one week before I have to come back home which is a total of ~4,000 miles in a week and a half. Not such an economic plan. I'll be heading that way in early May instead. Hopefully it's not too hot out then
