I have a trip coming up to mtn bike in Moab. I will have a full day and a half to ride Salt Lake City before I fly west for the second part of my trip. What is the best hotel or area to stay that is near good riding but has things to do for the wife. Good views always help if recommending specific hotels.
Note, I have never been to northern Utah, I usually fly into Denver on my trips to Moab, so I know nothing about the area other than there is a lake, mountains and an airport.
