Sunday:
Sleep in, grab some breakfast, coffee and then off for a group mountain bike ride OR canyoneering excursion!

Group lunch and then start heading back to Denver.

What is Canyoneering?
Here is an excerpt from the guiding site on the half day adventure our group will be partaking:
“As you venture through this canyon, you can marvel at the forces of nature as you pass through these beautifully sculpted, twisting passages, immaculately carved by the passing of time and water. This canyon is packed with excitement as you negotiate slot canyons and wade through chest deep water balancing your pack on your head. This canyon is a thrill and a great taste of real-deal canyoneering.”

BONUS! 
If you want to break up the ride home there will be the option to stop in Palisade for wine + mead tastings and to purchase local farm fresh produce including some famous Palisade peaches!

Check out our local 10 week trail running training group where we meet at different trails twice a week to train for the race!!  In these coached sessions we will increase mileage weekly and practice work on hills, turnover and technical terrain.  Learn more here.

Mountain bikers, we also have a 10 week program with regular group rides and special skills clinics.  Learn more HERE.

Will range between $300-600. The total trip costs depends lodging arrangements and activities.
* For example, $300 would be based on being an L2S member, sharing a room, bringing your own bike and not doing the canyoneering. This is an estimate and may be lower as we work out deals with local Moab partners.
