...in the midst of a fiftteen minute portage.

The over-the-shoulder portability of the bicycle is one of its most redeeming features.

A beautiful, clear, cold, quiet day in the desert.

Yeah it's a cool pic. Coming from an area that is full of rainforest and bushland, it sounds strange to hear about a "cool" day in a desert!! :p

Hike-a-bikes, often some of the most gruelling, exhausting and enjoyable rides I have ever done.

Fantastic.

Dave.

On the way up to Hidden Valley?

Nice, by the way.

Indeed.

Fun hardtail ride from home. Road ride out to the Stagecoach Grill, breakfast & coffee there, up to Hidden Valley, over the pass to the sunny side of massive sandstone domes, across to the Rim Trail proper and down, down, down.

I'm glad the lift is gone. The top is already starting to look more restored.

P.S. Thanks for the story link, KRob. And thank you for the confidence, Chocolate Girl, but this one truly is a portage.

wow! did they take the lift out? or is it just still sitting unused? i used to live over on that side of town and would hike my dog up the moab rim on a near daily basis. it would kill me to see hoards of tourons climbing off the lfit at the top of a beautiful climb :(

great pic!! thanks for the scenery
