Annual Suzuki 24 Hours of Moab Mountain Bike Race

One of Moab's biggest events of the year takes place this weekend and so the are will be crowded.

The annual Suzuki 24 Hours of Moab Mountain Bike Race begins Saturday and continues Sunday. It is a relay-style race held in the Behind the Rocks area.

The event is very popular and so participants registered months ago. There will be a festive atmosphere around town - plenty of related activities, food, music and entertainment. It's always a fun time to visit the area.
This year's race will be webcast on the event's website. See that action here.

After the race, Moab will start to settle into a slower, fall pace. There are still several interesting events on the calendar but they don't usually attract as many people. If you like peace and quite, you'll be able to find it in the Moab area after this weekend.
