Moab On The Rocks

0 Posted by - August 11, 2015 - Places

Moab, Utah, has established itself as one of the preeminent mountain bike destinations in the world and it all started in the early 1980’s. It was a combination of some local characters who opened the first bike shop, strange bikes with fat tires, a lumpy landscape called “Slickrock”, some beautiful photography, the first mountain bike magazine adorned with photos of Moab and some harbingers from Marin and Crested Butte (some of whom are still here today) that put Moab on the biking map. As the sport took hold, Moab attracted more and more visitors. Moab became the hot spot for everyone in the industry and at Halloween in 1986 the legendary Canyonlands Fat Tire Festival was born.
