    Thanks Ahab-Hymasa....

    Just finished up my first trip to Moab.

    Thanks to the makers of the Hymasa-Captain Ahab loop.

    One of the best, most fun, loops I've ridden in over 20 years of mountain biking. Amazing. Love'd the climbs, views, and of course the downs.

    As an avid rider and trail builder I can really appreciate all the work that went into making it.

    Can't wait to get back to do it again, and again.

    Did that loop last weekend. Amazing trail, though a bit nerve racking in places when the wind is gusting up to and over 30mph.

    Really want to ride it a few times in a row.

    same. Rode Hymasa/Rockstacker/Ahab last week.

    It's an awesome ride, yet I would be a little more relaxed if I could ride it a few times over a couple weeks to get a better flow, and a little less white knuckle!

    I'm also a builder (Northwest), and i appreciate how much they do with so little dirt! Lots of rocks to move... It's terrific what they're doing in Moab!

    My favorite trail in Moab. It's got the best chunky-flow of any trail I've ridden, if there is such a thing.

    Even the Hymasa climb is fun.

    Before Hymasa was built, the route up was the jeep trail. It's still worth a shot when you're in town, to climb to the point where you continue to Ahab. I've never cleaned the entire route and I never will - there's just no way! But, it's an amazing set of climbing challenges that are worth trying. It's incredible, the things that you can climb in Moab...it's like another planet.

    Don't sleep on Rockstacker and Jackson's either.... I think Jackson's is right up there with lower Ahab.

    And to whoever said it above, I totally agree- the climb up Hymasa is actually "fun".
