This sounds like a great trip to do next summer, Telluride to Moab via the San Juan Hut System:
San Juan Hut Systems operates a 206-mile mountain bike route from Telluride, Colorado to Moab, Utah. Each hut is approximately 35 miles apart and is fully equipped. This route follows dirt roads from the high alpine tundra of the San Juan Mountains to the desert slickrock and canyon country of Utah.
Technical single track is available.
