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.

DreamrideSample Classic 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.
