Last week, a handful of us set out from our can camp site outside of Moab, Utah on a 170 mile bikepacking route through native Ute land. This was my first multi-day bikepacking adventure and it set the bar extremely high. From riding near the snow capped La Sal mountains, to camping deep sandstone Lockhart Basin, the views and roads were both some of the best I’ve ever seen.
This route featured between 50-60 mile days on the bike, and set. 4,000 ft of climbing each day for 3 days total and 2 nights camping. I learned a few valuable things on this trip and definitely won’t forget the memories made and miles traveled with this crew.
