Get ready for the next ENVE Takeover session, which lands at one of the most famous downhill trails in the United States.

If you’ve ever dreamed of taking on Moab, Utah’s “The Whole Enchilada” — heck, even if you’ve already digested it and want to go for seconds — you should check out ENVE’s Takeover series now.

The Utah-founded bike- and component-builder’s tour is your free ticket to ride classic trails. On this stop, ENVE bought 50 Oct. 16 shuttle tickets for “The Whole Enchilada” and its 27 miles, 2,000 feet of climbing, and epic 7,000-plus feet of descent.

The trail is manageable to a degree, with a 5% average grade. But don’t come unprepared: max grades of 37% make for some flyover sections.

The MTB Project says, “The Whole Enchilada covers every type of riding and scenery that Moab has to offer in one massive, magical, mind-blowing sensory overload.”

Cruise over there to find out everything else you need to know about the trail. Suffice it to say, it’s mega.

How do you sign up for the ENVE Takeover outing? Easy: Go to Eventbrite and start clicking buttons. Registration is free. Shuttles run from 8:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. ENVE asks that you show up 30 minutes before your departure time at the Chile Pepper Bike Shop on Main Street.

And if you sign up but can’t make it, do us all a favor and cancel your tickets — I guarantee an eager rider will snap them up.
