24 Hours of Moab Mtn Bike Race This Weekend

Moab will be busy this weekend as mountain bikers participate in the big 24 Hours of Moab race, which is scheduled for Oct 8-9.

The race website has this good synopsis of the race:

In sixteen years time this race has become one of the single greatest mountain bike races in the history of the sport. Each year, four thousand racers, support crew, and spectators make the pilgrimage to Moab. Twelve miles south of Moab, a mountain bike city grows up out of a desert graze-land area known locally as "Behind-the-Rocks". It's a completely remote and stunningly beautiful venue.

The course is world-class; high-desert racing at its finest, as scenic as it is challenging.

Race activity is centered outside of town, but motels, campgrounds and restaurants will all be crowded.

It is great fun to participate in the race. It is also fun to just be in town during the event and catch some of the excitement. If you enjoy mountain bikes and bikers, this is the place to be.
