Biking in Moab, Utah

The TV Version: In this family-centric challenge in Season 8, teams debated between mountain biking six miles into Moab’s Bull Canyon or rappelling the 270 feet drop; in both cases, squabbling ensued.

The Live Version: Consider it a nothing-special rappel versus some of the world’s best mountain biking: Though the former may be faster, travelers not on the clock may well prefer the latter. Gemini Bridges’ namesake trail is a 14-mile point-to-point trail between Utah highways 313 and 191, with the natural arches roughly midway. The wide path makes cycling easier, but beware the four-wheel-drive vehicles that often share the trail.
