    LIMITED TO 100 RIDERS!

    This is an Unorganized Self Supported ADV oriented event.

    Last year was a ton of fun, we attracted riders from all over the country and we look forward to doing it again this year.

    I will post street routes and dirt routes for all to enjoy. Last year we all saw Toroweap, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Lake Powell, Brian Head, Duck Creek, Jacobs Lake and all the surrounding areas. Lots of Dirt! Enjoy daily rides from 10 miles to 400 miles.

    Temperatures will be perfect at the higher elevations.

    Tell them that you are with the "Flying Monkey Adventure Riders" so they place you near the fun!

    Dry camping is available through Zion Ponderosa and it includes hot showers, two pools, and two hot tubs!

    RV Sites and Cabins are also available. Check their website for pricing!

    What fuel range should I plan for during this rally? What is the max distance between fuel stops?

    I always recommend a range of 150 miles, however that is the max range. Most rides don't require more than 100 miles between gas stops. If you plan on riding to Toroweep make sure you have at least 150 mile range.

    Thank you for the reply. When will we be able to download the GPS tracks? I wanted to load them onto my bike prior to making the 727 mile journey from San Francisco.

    Nice GPX. Are there more files? The GPX file doesn't match the map you posted with all the highlighted trails.

    I see we get close to Colorado City. That is the place with the Warren Jeffs followers reside. At least three Mormon fundamentalist sects are said to have been based there.
    The Colorado City/Hildale, Utah area has the world's highest incidence of fumarase deficiency, an extremely rare genetic condition which causes severe intellectual disability. Geneticists attribute this to the prevalence of cousin marriage between descendants of two of the town's founders.

    I'd love to ride through.

    We will set up in registration in the yellow outlined field. The Red Box is the new bathrooms. We have campsites 1-32. First come first serve. If you are dry camping in an RV you can park in the yellow area on the map.
