I'm thinking about planning a trip out west for late spring or early summer. Everybody talks about Moab, a bit about Fruita, but are there other places to check out? What are people's experiences? Any good resources for how to pull a trip together?
A couple buddies of mine and I have been doing an annual trip to the St George region of Utah. You can typically find some great deals to fly into Vegas, also the rental car pricing there tends to be cheap. From St george you can easily get up to Bryce or Gooseberry which gives you a great variety of riding. A great site to check out for biking in Utah is, utahmountainbiking.com. The area is great it has a little bit of everything, except crowds.
