There's a ride in Moab each year called the Whole Enchilada. From what I can gather it uses a portion of a popular shuttle ride there that has a REALLY LONG downhill. Don't quote me but I wanna say it's like 15 miles. Anyway people get shuttled to the top and then ride the trail down. Now some endurance guy or guys got the idea to make a nasty loop that includes this downhill portion. So every year a bunch of people get together and do a spirited ride on this loop. This year I'll be going thanks to an invite I got the other day from Marshal Bird. I think the loop is just under 70 miles long and right at 15,000' of gain. It's really important for me to get my nutrition more dialed in for this so I can enjoy it and set some thing straight in my head.
