“Colorado’s Durango to Moab Hut-to-Hut route is an epic tour with nothing short of epic views. Comprised of mostly back country forest service roads with plenty of single track options, the route will challenge all levels of riders while still being supremely enjoyable for anyone with a high level of fitness. When riding it as a family on vacation, we took lots of memorable video and had an experience none of us will forget. Hearing our son say at the end of almost every day “this is the best ride of my life” will certainly stick with us. You’ll start out with lots of climbing, but you will travel shorter distances on those days, then roll through high plateaus and passes while making your way to the next camp site. Having your meals prepared and gear transported (for the Stage Racers) really lightens your pack—mostly rain gear, hydration and nutrition for the day. There just can’t be a better way to ride through the Rockies.”
