“End of the World – Mayan Meltdown”
Early Registration through June 22
Farmington, UT Antelope Island State Park will be the venue for the 19th Annual Antelope by Moonlight Bike Ride to be held on July 6th at 10:00 PM. This popular non-competitive bike ride is open to participants of all ages and starts at the Antelope Island Marina. Early registration fees are available through June 22nd. Registration fees range from $17 - $27 and include a collector’s t-shirt, park entry, and refreshments (served until midnight).
The half way point is the historic Fielding Garr Ranch where refreshments are served and prizes (including a new bike from The Biker’s Edge) are awarded. The entire route is twenty-two miles on an asphalt road. Event Planner, Neka Roundy, says “Bikers of all ages really like this ride. It is just fun for them. There is something special about being on the Island at night and seeing the lights on the mainland”.
Prizes will be awarded to participants who choose to dress up or decorate their bike using the 2012 theme “End of the World – Mayan Meltdown”. Judging will be at 9:30 pm at the Marina. “Costumes and bike decorations have really been fun over the years and this year’s theme will lend to a lot fun opportunities”, says Roundy.
