I'm just starting some planning. Would early July be too hot to attempt the whole distance? I am thinking seven days of riding. Any thoughts?

Took my riding partner and I 4 days at a leisure pace, that's with all the technical (lockhart, etc) options. If you had the luxury of 7 days, I would suggest adding a number of fun full day side trips (white rim trail, etc).

July will be hot for sure, specially for a northerner like myself where anything over 80 feels hot. July is the hottest month by avg, but if you're from the south perhaps 100+f will not feel so hot.

It's almost time.....

Four of us leave on Sept. 1st from Washington. Has anybody rode the route recently? Any rerouting issues we should know about? How many days is it taking normally? Lots of questions.....I'm wondering why this isn't a more popular thread? Did everyone skip Utah and go straight to Colorado?

Ride report is here if you're interested; to answer your questions BackCountryCruizer (aka Tom) and I road UTBDR Sept 10th, 2 riders, and took 4 days south to north. Only weather issue to speak of was massive t-storm near moab, otherwise perfect time of year.

We enjoyed the trip so much we're talking about another return trip in 2014. Current thought is trailer bikes to Bear Lake, ride UTBDR north to south, then loop back using COBDR south to north, and ride across Wyoming's great basin back to Bear Lake. We rode the CDR a number of years ago and that Wyoming section was one of our favorites.

UTBDR North to South....

Is there anything to be aware of if we were to run the route North to South? Any issues with Lockhart Basin in this direction? Are those steps doable going up?

of coarse that's one of those depends questions, but I saw good lines in both directions over the bigger lockhart steps.
