In Ridgway we say goodbye to Debbie and cycle back to Montrose to pick up the rental car the next day. The ride down is so much more fun in the sun and with tailwind than the ride up with all the rain and headwind a few days ago. We do the same stretch in less than half the time.
Despite we booked the car from the next day we cycle straight to the car rental company. Maybe we can pickup the car already. On arrival at the rental company we notice they’re closed already. To bad.
But when we hang out a little longer in front of the rental company to figure out where to stay for the night a guy comes out off the building to close it down for the night. When he sees us he asks us why we’re here. We tell him our story and an hour later we drive our car out of town… up to Moab, the mountain bike capital of the country. ?
We rented the car for a week and in that week we did 3200km road trip, two time zones, six National Parks, three times snow, many dessert, two dogs and loads of other fun things. Just check some pictures below;
