A group of friends had some fun riding their bikes in Moab on Saturday. Here's how much time different people spent riding the whole route. Others spent less time riding less than the whole route. Those needing multiple gears are noted. Sorry to anyone who inadvertently has a geared drivetrain attributed to them.

It was a fantastic day. The course was great in the sense that I thought it more challenging as the ride progressed, as all great rides should. Thanks for getting us all together. I guess I was one of those who was listed as having gears, but I had only one on the monkey for this trip. Looking forward to next year already. And whoever bought the pizza -- a big, big thankyou!

Nice set of friends. There's some really good people on that list. And by good I mean not just on the bike.

Mike Mangan on a Singlespeed? Wow, the one-gear revolution really is taking over.

Wish I could have made it. Congrats to everybody!

Thanks Fred!

Thanks Fred for suggesting such an excellent route for us to ride on.

I enjoyed myself 100%....until I flatted, got a little lost, and lost contact with Dave and Lynda all within the last 15 miles. :D

It's was allllllllllllllllll good!

Bunch of photos posted here. Those that rode the route, feel free to use them how you wish (your personal blog, Christmas cards, trading cards, etc, etc, etc).

And it looks like all of us, except for Cat, got "chick'd" :cool:

Thank YOU!
Yeah Fred, thanks.

..and thank you Ed for the lovely shots.

I think we were all rambling incoherently on the Blue Dot trail, maybe some people were just louder than others.

Marko!

It was a spirit lifting moment when I heard you singing your way along Blue Dot :thumbsup:

And thanks for aiming the camera at me on that climb, talk about emptying the tank for a photo op :eekster:

More great pix from everyone, awesome! I have more...here's one. Kinda' looked to me like I was getting the finger as I climbed to Seven Mile Rim?

Thanks Fred for putting together such a fantastic route. The scenery was non-stop wows the whole day.

Thanks to everyone posting pics too. They are super to see as I didn't have my camera with me.
So, what you're telling us is that the winner, errr, the rider in the non-race that started riding with a bunch of friends at the same time in the morning, rode the same ride through the day, finished up ahead of everyone else before hanging out until other friends finished the non-racing ride, didn't carry a camera or stop to take pictures? I wonder if there is a correlation in there somewhere.

I loved, and hated, being able to see nearly the entire route, from where ever I happened to be. Along Sovereign I could look up and see the rims yet to come. Up on those rims I could see down onto where I'd been, and in the far off distance Poison Spider was always there, beckoning and mocking.

Truly a unique route. It really made me feel small and insignificant. Which is exactly how it should be.
