Friday September 11th
7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.
Breakfast in the beautiful Hotel Colorado. Remember -- you should NOT wear bike clothes today -- we are rafting down the Colorado River!
Our whitewater professional recommend that you wear shorts and T-shirts, weather permitting. Hats, sunscreen, a water bottle and shoes that would stay on in the event of a swim are always good ideas. Heavy cotton like jeans or sweaters perform poorly and are not recommended.
VITAL -- After rafting we will have lunch and then straight to Moab -- you will NOT have access to your main luggage again until the evening. Be SURE to pack a small bag with a change of clothes for after rafting -- showers and a changing area are available. You can leave your small bag at the rafting office until you return. In that bag should be whatever you want for the drive from Glenwood Springs to Moab -- book, earphones, whatever...
Your luggage should be ready to go, in your room by the front door. If 7:30 a.m. is too early for you that's fine -- please leave the Do Not Disturb sign on your room, but then you MUST get your own bag onto our truck no later than 8:30 a.m.
Your luggage and your bike MUST be on the truck.
We are picked up at the hotel to go down the Colorado River!
1:30 p.m (estimate)
Back at the whitewater rafting office for lunch, then off to Moab! This is possibly the most beautiful drive you will ever take.
We'll stop halfway there at a truck stop where you can grab a last-minute snack or stock up on CB radios, trucker's wallets with chain attached, or discounted country music CDs!
7:30 p.m. (estimate)
We are in Moab and enjoying a great dinner together.
You can be sure that there will be last minute changes to this itinerary
as we get closer to ride day -- check back here any time for the latest info.
