Take a trip on Kokopellis Trail in May 2017.
Kokopelli Trail Mountain Bike Trip
May 18-21 2017
3 nights 4 days
This trip to Kokopellis Trail is sponsored by Team Evergreen Cycling and South Park Adventure Guides. If you are ready for great food, and a challenging mountain bike adventure, then this is the trip for you. After a hard day of riding you will be treated to excellent food, socializing with new friends and a refreshing shower. Our typical seafood night includes Alaskan King Crab Legs, Maryland Crab Cakes and grilled Salmon.
The route will follow Kokopellis Trail starting in Loma Colorado with some awesome side loop single track riding along the Colorado River when we pass through Rabbit Valley (Western Rim Trail). In addition, on our last day we will link the UPS, LPS and upper Porcupine Rim trail to have a 4,000' decent to the Colorado River just outside of Moab (end).
Included with trip fee: All meals, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks, water, transportation of your camping gear to each campsite, a ride leader and transportation back to Loma (where our cars will be).
Ride format: We will begin riding from Loma on Thursday, May 18th at noon; ride approximately 40 miles each day to a new campsite, and finishing in Moab on Sunday, May 21st. It will be the rider's responsibility to get to Loma for the start. Carpooling is always an option from the Denver area.
A support vehicle will carry your gear during the ride, so you will be riding light. Please only one duffel per person due to limited space. You are responsible for providing your own tent (or arrange to share one), a sleeping bag, a pad and personal gear. We will also provide a suggested packing list.
We will do this trip with a minimum of 10 and maximum of 20 riders, rain or shine. This is an all-inclusive fully supported trip! Trip fee for Team Evergreen Cycling members is $630 and the non-member fee is $660 which includes a one year membership to Team Evergreen Cycling.
You will be expected to bring a tuned bike and a body that can ride all day but sag is always available. A bike mechanic will be along and can help with bike repairs as needed.
Ride Stats: approximately 146 miles with 12,500 feet elevation gain. Ride starts at Loma, ends at Moab. Ride time: 6+ hours each day.
