When your Jeep breaks down in Moab and leaves you w/o transportation other than a mountain bike: Leave the rig at a mechanic, pedal over to Poison Spider Bicycles, and catch a shuttle to the top of Porcupine Rim. 

That's where I met Russell Facente, Sales Manager at Poison Spider Bicycles, who let me tag along w/him and his friends. I travel to ride as much as I can and if there's one thing I've learned about riding outside of your own backyard it's this: Follow a local down a trail they've ridden countless times and you'll find yourself taking lines you would have never seen on your own. 

This holds especially true on The Whole Enchilada where options are abundant throughout every one the 20+ miles of trail.

 Thanks for the share guys, this is one of our favorite Riot shots of the year - Russ, charging! Amazing picture, even more amazing as it was taken from a phone. Great job @danasince1979!

 Great shot, and it was taken on a phone. Just comes to show you don't need top equipment to get a POD.

 Thanks you! And yeah if you're going to have a Jeep break down, Moab is probably the best place for that to happen.

 Planned on riding the trail by myself that day and didn't bother to bring the camera. I'm stoked that the Nexus phone came through this time!
