Mountain Bike Adventure

Six Garver employees conquered a challenging seven-day, 215-mile mountain biking adventure as part of San Juan Hut Systems. Biking an average of 30 rugged miles per day, the group traveled from Durango, Colorado through the alpine peaks of the San Juan Mountains to Moab, Utah's canyon country and desert slickrock.

Brock Johnson, Dan Williams, Steve Jones, Chad Clinehens, Chris Milligan, and Kyle Kruger, along with Ron King, followed rugged and remote dirt roads, stopping every evening to rest in designated huts. Along the hut-to-hut biking system, the riders had to be wary of dehydration, mountain lions and rattle snakes, and lightning strikes. Their journey took them over mountain peaks and across the desert floor, offering spectacular views few people ever get to see.

Each biker followed a rigorous three to six-month training program to get in shape for the adventure. The ride provided a great team-building activity that also served as a fitness challenge, which fits into Garver's culture of enhancing employee work/recreational life balance and an adventurous spirit.
