About Ridermel

Hey, welcome to my website. I think you’re gonna like it.

Mel is the spawn of alien-human genetic experiments. He (I mean me, it is so confusing!) is seemingly human minus a few social graces. He lives to travel, ride his bike(s) and explore the outdoors. Based in Moab UT and Ontario Canada,Mel has spent more than a decade riding, writing and publishing mountain bike guidebooks and free-lancing for magazines under a silly human pseudonym.

He spends his time travelling to check out trails and “getting lost so you don’t have to”. Mel holds the dubious achievement of once owning a vehicle worth 1/15 the value of his bike. He is the self-proclaimed dispenser of “more riding tips than the Kama Sutra” and the owner of a spectacular list of injuries.

It is my sincere hope that you can use this site to find useful information about Moab. If you happen to click a few buttons and buy a book – even better. I’ve included a bunch of lame crap with a few gems that are supposed to get you stoked to ride in Moab.

If you want to send me an email, feel free – I try to answer within 24 hours unless I’m on a road trip.

I’m happy to hear about your positive experiences, suggestions for improvements, or even trail additions you’d like to see in the next edition. If you send me a photo that I use, I’ll hook you up with a book on the next new edition.
