It’s you… only faster! The sun is on your back and snow-capped mountains rise in the distance. Welcome to Moab! You might even forget that you’re riding an e-bike during this exhilarating tour of the backcountry.
Even if you’ve never visited Moab (pop. 5000) before, you’ve very likely seen it. About 245-miles south of Salt Lake City, Moab and its dramatic surroundings served as the backdrop for countless Golden Era Westerns, including “Wagonmaster”. More recent films—from Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade to Thelma and Louise, City Slickers II and Mission Impossible II—were shot here, in and around the La Sal Mountains to the East, part of the 200-million year old Colorado Plateau. The latter also inspired the larger than life animated vistas and exaggerated settings for The Coyote and Roadrunner Show, as well as the Radiator Springs/Route 66 ghost town depicted, with great detail in the Lightning McQueen/Cars Disney films.
Moab’s history is by turns rich as varied: From a Mormon outpost on the Spanish Trail, to Wild-West era outlaw haunt or lair, to base for hard-rock miners and rare mineral prospectors. Inasmuch its latest reincarnation is a fairly new one. While the beauty that verges on hyperrealism of Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Parks has drawn nature-lovers for generations, it’s the land edging and surrounding the parks that’s utterly redefined Moab, from erstwhile park lodging base to world-class adventure travel destination.
The famed Slickrock Bike Trail was originally carved out, in 1959, for motorcycle riding. But tales of the incredible mountain bike riding to be had here soon became legion. As Jerusalem is to religious pilgrimage, Moab is to fat tire devotees and assemblies: a network, if not a legacy carefully built and handed down by the first generation of intensely dedicated local riders and throwback cycling personalities. Today, mountain bikers from Europe to Australia to South America, from Maine to Marin County come for Moab’s world famous routes and epic lines in the sand: Poison Spider, Porcupine Rim, as well as the abovementioned Slickrock Trail.
Moab, circa 2018, has it all: from white-water rafting to horseback riding, phenomenal climbing routes to the afore-described five diamond mountain biking. Forasmuch, it was this incomparable grouping of big outdoor recreational opportunities and pursuits that compelled the first wave of adventurer-seekers to settle here, and thus transform this delightful little city.
Our combo tours are like a Moab’s Best Of/greatest hits album. Signature slickrock trails offer challenging, if fun rides for all levels of riders, marked by seemingly endless singletrack that shade each day. Off the bike, our tours have built-in side hikes. The latter lend intimate optics onto some of the area’s most astonishing natural features, as we view-find from characteristic natural arches to age-old petroglyphs. Invariably it’s not a stretch by any means to see a genuine dinosaur footprint out on one of our select trails.
This trip is a great introduction to the incredible riding found in the Moab area. Our e-bikes will allow you to travel farther and faster than you can imagine. This spectacular tour is perfect for cyclists new to mountain biking and groups of mixed ability levels.
Day 1-2: Meet in Moab. Ride beautiful slickrock and Klondike Trails. Customized to each group.
Day 3-4: Ride sections of Porcupine Rim Trail. Hike amongst the massive sandstone arches of Arches National Park.

** Day to day itinerary may vary slightly on eBike MTB tour.
Located in the Heart of Canyonlands and just 4 miles from Arches National Park, is the Big Horn Lodge, one of Moab’s finest lodging accommodations. The Big Horn Lodge features an outdoor heated pool and a great locals favorite, Smitty’s Gold Steak Restaurant, located on site.

Having custom-made vehicles allows us to take you to places few other outfitters can, or will go. Every Escape Adventures tour is accompanied by at least one support vehicle, trailer, and in some cases a second and third transfer van. After purchase, we custom engineer our trucks, vans, and trailers by our on-staff mechanic to meet the unique needs of different tours. For example, certain trucks are specifically designed for The White Rim and The Maze, while others are designed for The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. Each of our guides is required to be trained in safe vehicle operation, 4X4 driving, and basic maintenance. Our experienced guides make it look easy, transporting you and up to 12 guests, along with their bikes, fresh food, and plenty of drinking water to a remote location.

Food is a big part of the Escape Adventures experience. Most dinners and breakfasts are served at local restaurants on our inn tours. We also have energy snacks aboard our support vehicles. Don’t be surprised if your guides purchase fresh fruits and healthy snacks throughout the day while you are out riding. They may just show up on the trail with a local treat! Many of our guests are vegans or vegetarians, whom we are more than happy to accommodate. If you have special diet requirements or limitations, just let us know when you sign-up and we’ll work with you to meet your needs.
