The mission: 168 miles in three days from Grand Junction to Moab. The bikes: Priority 600s with Gates belts and Pinion gearboxes. The lodgings: San Juan Hut System cabins stocked with candy bars and all the food a hungry cyclist can devour.

Watch the adventure unfold as Ryan and Dana pedal through serene desert landscapes, meet friendly strangers, eat lots of beans, and never once lube a chain.
