    Thanks, gents! My wife’s parents live off of Mountain Rd, I have been riding those trails on and off for 23 years or so. I have always had fun there, but this time was absolutely the most fun on an ebike. Absolutely flying up and down all those awesome chunky rocks on the ridge, and cleaning things that I never had. So, so fun. Even the meandering trails in the woods were fun on boost. I’ll ride the regular bike Saturday to compare, but it was total giggles for 24 miles.

    FWIW, I didn’t see a single rider in 24 miles on the single track. Which is nutz for a beautiful fall day in a pretty major metropolitan region.

    I'd be a much better rider if I started in 1988.

    That was the year I got my first ‘real’ mtb (heh), one of these bad boys.

    Got a break from our freeze thaw and before all afternoon of rain.good skinny that’s getting harder as it’s started leaning a bit



    Old quarry with a trail along that ridge, with some steep sections dropping down, like last pic

    To be honest, I wasn’t riding, because I’m injured. But I did shuttle some friends up Sand Flats and noticed this new sign on the way back down. Thanks Remy.

    From Saturday. The trails are pretty incredible. I rode 15miles, it rained all day Friday, and there wasn’t even a puddle.

    To be fair, I've seen shots of that line featured in all kinds of ads and bike magazines over the last several years. I think Remy's video was just the proverbial straw.

    Typical Parks overreaction. OMG someone's putting faint tire marks somewhere, so we're going to literally drill holes in the rock, then grout in rusty steel posts that no one can miss seeing.

    Go forth and ride, then bring back pics

    Context: this line is in Sand Flats Recreation Area…arguably one of the most heavily used BLM areas in the country. Camping, MTB, hiking, BASE jumping and every kind of off-road motorized use you could possibly imagine occurs there. It’s also happens to be a fragile desert environment. 30 years ago it was an absolute free for all and the desert was getting trashed so the BLM partnered with Grand County to manage the area: establish trail and travel routes, close a shitload of social trails and routes, build campgrounds, dig shitters and put dumpsters in the Slickrock Lot. The quality of the experience up there increased significantly and the desert remains in incredibly good shape considering the traffic and usage.
    Management of this area has always been a challenge. With the amount of use that the entire Moab zone gets,locals and land managers have figured out how to get along and have built a shitload of great singletrack in the last 15 years. Are there still unsanctioned trails and routes being ridden? Yep, but people are smart enough to keep them low key.
    The drama about Remy is not so much that he rode it, as noted, lots of people have ridden it…(including Cody Kelly’s dad.)it’s that his job is literally to ride hard shit and broadcast it to his 561k IG followers. That video has over 2million likes. A bunch of followers now want to add this to the tick list on their next trip to Moab…and hey there’s about a million other slickrock fins out there that nobody has put on IG yet… maybe I’ll go viral and get spansered if I ride one, my bros got a sweet drone. It’s just a bunch of sand and rock. Multiply that by even a hundred riders and you’ve got a fucking mess out there.
    The BLM is drawing a bright line on this one because of Remy’s reach and the obvious influence he has on what and where people ride.
    Read the comments in Remy’s post..the replies to the MMBA’s comment make me embarrassed to be a Mtn biker. Buncha entitled dumbfuck mouth breathers.
    It’s just plain disrespectful of the work that’s been done by trail builders, shop folks, guides, shuttle drivers - essentially the whole bike community in Moab and the relationship they’ve built with the BLM. Go out to Bartlett Wash for a slickrock free for all, there’s bigger, scarier lines out there anyhow.
