Mountain Biking in Moab

This week we are in Moab to film one of the most beautiful desert/desert scrub areas in the country.  While we are in the area we thought we’d film the piece using mountain bikes.

This trail is known as the slickrock trail and it’s one of the most popular trails in Moab.  It’s considered to be the most difficult yet readily accessible trail here.  I’m not a mountain biker but I do have a lot of road biking experience and this was very challenging for me.  I fell a few times, and most of those times I slid all the way down the face of the rock.  Both Hazen and Jonas, who have more practice on the mountain bike would probably agree with me that it was extremely fun and exhausting at the same time.
