The Ribbon Professional Review and Guide
"This is one of the best advanced rides in the area. The scenery is spectacular and the trail winds through some of the more bizarre landscape you will see here. The uphill section on the main ribbon is mind-boggling. The view on top of The Ribbon is fantastic and offers panoramic views of the Book Cliffs, Colorado National Monument, and Grand Mesa. This trail is located 2 miles southwest of Grand Junction. Tread: 3.6 miles on singletrack; 4.8 miles on doubletrack; and 4.4 miles on paved road."
