The Grand UG is a one of a kind adventure and you have to be prepared for long days, variable conditions, and complete solitude. This is our ultimate Fat Bike winter trip, and as far as we know, there is nothing comparable out there. This 3 night/ 4 day route traverses the entire Uncompahgre Plateau and is between 100 and 125 miles depending on road conditions. Most of the Uncompahgre Plateau is over 9,000ft and you will drop down to under 5,000 feet at the end of your trip, so you will likely have a mix of snow, dirt, mud, and sand. The Grand Ug utilizes the three middle huts on our Telluride to Moab summer biking trip. 2016 will be our pilot year for offering the Grand UG with limited availability.

If interested, please give us a call and or fill out this application. The Grand Ug is the only route which we require an application acceptance for. This is because not all bikers are prepared for winter conditions, long milage in variable conditions, or the truly remote nature of this ride. We want to do our best in matching you with a ride that is a good fit.

Fat biking in snow is still relatively new, if you have what it takes and are interested in taking on the Grand Ug, fill out an application and you might be one of the first people to ever ride this route in winter!

What's in store for you

This is the most fully stocked fat biking trip available and we have almost all the food we normally supply on our summer mountain bike trips. Here is list of what food items you can expect to chow down on while riding the Grand Ug.

Bacon, Eggs, Cheese, Butter, Garlic, Potatoes, Onions, Oatmeal, Grits Malt-O-Meal, Cream of Wheat, granola, cold cereal, Pancake Mix, Syrup, Bisquick, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, powdered milk, powdered creamer, sugar, Gatorade, tang, lemonade, dried fruits, nuts, GORP, pretzels, club crackers, cookies, cliff bars, granola bars, chocolate bars, salami sticks, bread, tortillas, cheese, peanut butter, jelly, honey, corn chips, Fritos, Gold Fish, pastas (including gluten free), powdered pasta sauce, powdered pesto sauce, parmesan cheese, quinoa, couscous, basmati rice, instant mashed potatoes, instant rice, canned chicken, canned salmon, canned black beans and spices.

The Pros & Cons of Shipping your Bike

The Pros & Cons of Shipping your Bike

Riding your bike is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in a new place. Planning on riding with us, San Juan Huts, you'll likely be asking the question: Should I fly with my bike, ship it, or should I go cross country to my destination? Which bike case should I use? Box or case? What are the pros and cons to my options? Taking a road trip would be my choice, but not everyone can get a week off of work plus time it takes to get to your destination.

As of this morning the closure around the 416 Fire has been reduced and both the Standard Route (from Purgatory Mountain Resort) and the singletrack Alternate (on the Colorado Trail) are open.

We have received some good rains that are helping tamp down the fire (near the start of the Durango Route) with more moisture in the forecast. Here is a link to the latest fire update. facebook.com/416Fire/videos…

The stage 3 fire ban is lifted in the San Juan National Forrest. The 416 fire is still burning. Riders on the Durango to Moab Route need to access the first hut from the Rico / Lizard Head Pass area. All other huts and routes are running as normal. Stage 2 fire ban in effect.
