I would LOVE to be able to attend this one!

Who picked the location?

There is great dirt and street riding all around the area.

Mid April to late May is a good to time to visit Moab. It can be cold and snow at higher elevations but still be hot in the lower elevations and around the rivers. I lead a group out there for a week of riding a few years back and we were there the 3rd week of April I think. They got 2" of snow the night before we arrived. That changed our plans a bit, but not too much. We had big adventure bikes as well as smaller 450-650 sized bikes, alternating between big and small bike days.


If you have the time, it is worth the trip!

I have no clue what or where around there but it looks like there is a road east out of Moab that snakes it way into some sort of forest with trails going into some mountains

You can ride over to Gateway. It is a mix of pavement and dirt, big bike friendly unless it is covered in snow.

3 Step Hideaway is about 50 miles south of Moab in La Salle. Great place to stay for ADV and DS bikes. They have a lot of visitors that do the TAT.

I am extremely jealous of anyone who can attend. Moab is our all time favorite small town to use as a center for riding. If you're looking for a great place to camp we highly recommend "Up the Creek" campground https://www.moabcampground.com/. An oasis smack dab in the middle of town. Secluded. Well maintained. Inexpensive. The owner is a very helpful and friendly young man. Only a long block from the main drag. Smith's is right there so grocery shopping is a breeze.

Like Gina said....give us 12 months advance warning and will see if we can make our schedules work.
