elite package upgrade If you are looking for the ultimate mountain bike vacation, then consider the Elite Upgrade option for the package below. The five day format was our most highly rated vacation by first time and repeat clients over the first ten years we were in business. The Elite Upgrade insures daily rides are guided or overseen by Dreamride company owner, Lee Bridgers. This option also allows access to our extreme high-end Elite-Only rentals and an expanded range from Moab featuring exclusive slickrock freeride areas. The Elite utilizes our custom Toyota Sequoia for transport and means a more social after-ride atmosphere with refreshments and options such as DVD rentals and photography services. For more information click on the Elite banner.

SLICKROCK SKILLS CLINICS can be part of any package in Moab. Play and learn on unimagined landscapes of sandstone by choosing to add or substitute one or two days of intensive skills instruction. Enjoy Moab's unique geology; huge slickrock domes, deep chutes and sandstone moguls. Learn tricks and action photography. Take photos better than the magazines. One day clinics are taught by our Moab guides. Action photography is taught by Lee Bridgers, company owner. Offered to riders of all skill levels. Especially effective for intermediates.

Choice of Accommodations
Lodgings are near to our Moab house and shop, carefully selected to suit your budget and desires for comfort, convenience and luxury. You can book your own lodgings, but we know the ropes, the best rooms and you end up paying the same price but without the hassle. If you are interested in combining the absolute best services we offer in Moab in a five day package, try the MOAB ULTIMATE, a luxurious private mountain bike vacation based on this same Five Daze plan but including upscale accommodations and all ELITE LEVEL perks such as creative multi-vehicle transport, extended range, more difficult rides, access to Elite Rentals, plus supervision and/or guiding by Lee Bridgers. Elite groups may be served by two guides, depending on need. Elite groups also gain access to our guesthouse for after-ride refreshments.

Flexible Skills-Specific Ride Series

Moab magicSkill level rating for each package is determined with paperwork, an interview and an on-trail evaluation. You may request rides gleaned from our network of connecting MOAB TRAILS (this is a woefully inadequate list just here to give you an idea of what you are getting yourself into). We reserve the right to guard your safety by placing you on trails appropriate to your skills and fitness. Many custom routes are TOP SECRET to preserve the trails and the solitude we crave. A first day's bike/eco skills evaluation determines rides to follow. Guide to guest ratio is four to one and we may add another guide. Extended services, such as a guide for every two riders to further increase safety, are available. For off-season weather conditions or for private groups searching for a variety of activities, combine mountain biking with hiking, road biking, photography, canyoneering or skiing (season allowing). During summer months we recommend a hike/swim or bike/swim combo for a day in the series. We access a canyon oasis where the water is clear and cool, the waterfalls spectacular.

More About Skills Evaluations: The first day of any series serves as a skills and fitness evaluation, environmental etiquette lesson, and basic instruction in techniques specific to Moab's challenges. Go to SKILLS INDEX to begin your skills training right now. Evaluation Day duties are usually performed in one of three areas chosen for this task. These areas present riders with real challenges without extreme vertical exposure in places with relatively easily access in case of an emergency. These areas are among the best, with loads of the beauty and challenge Moab is famous for.

Mountain bike rentals ~

We have a fleet of mountain bikes built in our shop especially for Moab terrain. These bikes do not come out of a box. They are customs, just for us. There are also demo bikes, examples of the best mountain bikes we sell, available as rentals for ELITE level packages.

DreamrideSample Advanced Level Itinerary
Entrada magicDAY 1
Entrada Slickrock Tongue "orientation day." Moderate to advanced slickrock, sand, and ledges and a steady climb and fast descent offer the chance to adjust to Moab terrain and get some pointers on how to smooth out your style for the bumbs to come. This is where you learn about the Cryptobiotic soil crusts and the importance of being careful in a fragile environment. You will see pristine vegetation, juxtaposed with lands damaged by mountain bikers. You will also see dinosaur bone, gastroliths and tracks. You will get a dose of technical slickrock. Spectacular scenery. For Elite level advanced riders there are alternate extended routes into more technical slickrock areas. If you are into mining history or love old machinery and dark shafts, there are copper and uranium mines here. Just ask to see them. SAMPLE PICTURE.

Quasimoto. A step up. Breathtaking scenery and technical terrain make this a ride where you have to stop every now and then to take it all in. You may wish to do more than one ride with us out here. Great slickrock freeform. Sand and ledges on a long climb. Downhill speeds along the edge of a cliff expanse. Pictured in the photo above. SAMPLE PICTURE. SAMPLE PICTURE.

Eagle's Perch. Step up to 2200 feet of climbing, slickrock, loose rock, ledges, an eight mile downhill run, and vistas that give you an excuse to get your lungs back. There are opportunities for extended mileage if your legs are up to the task. We visit bizarre rock formations and other geological points of interest. Don't forget the camera! SAMPLE PICTURE. Moab Slickrock

Sample Elite Level Rides: Behind the Rocks Epic or The Gap Epic. These are among the most magical, technicallly challenging and physically difficult rides we offer. Either can be considered brutal or simply be a great desert trek through tight canyons and across great vistas. All surfaces! Variety, scenery, serious physical and technical challenges, remote location and rare solitude mean these choices are for advanced to expert riders only. For intermediates we can trim the course a bit, but if you are a strong biker we do the whole thing with freeform thrown in. For pictures of this ride click on ADVANCED TRAILS and scroll down the page once it has loaded. There are also great photos of Behind the Rocks in our skills clinic SLIDESHOW. Photos of The Gap can be found at SECRETS.

Sample Elite Level Rides: The Devil's Playground or Red House. Step up to the absolute cream of slickrock riding--lots of spectacular scenery, and a chance to learn how to sidehill, ride the sand, and hammer the moguls. These areas allow for hardcore bike surfing or an easy or technical cruise along slickrock to enjoy more swoops on the smooth surface and shockingly beautiful scenery. For sample pictures go to BIKE SURFING.
