Taking the wife down there for the weekend and we're looking for a nice leisurely ride that will take from 4-6 hours. The wife would like to avoid major climbs.

Anyone have any suggestions???

Thanks!

Take the river road up to Dewey Bridge or even higher into Cisco. You can't really avoid hills in Moab, but that is about as flat as it gets. Drop dead gorgeous though.

My favorite rides there are not flat, but are great this time of year:
La Sal Loop, Dead Horse Point, and Arches NP to the end of the road.

The Potash road is very nice though, and quite flat. Also the ride up Highway 128, NE of town, along the Colorado River, is very nice; it has no major climbs but is quite hilly.

The Potash Road would be my recommendation too. The traffic is light, and it's as flat a road as you'll find in Moab. You'll likely not spend 4-6 hours on it, unless you pedal really slow.

If you're not familiar with the Moab, Potash Road follows the north side of the river and goes west from the main highway into town.
