DAVIS COUNTY (News4Utah)- More than 430,000 people explored Antelope Island State Park in 2017. The destination is becoming the place to be for those who love to put the pedals to the pavement.
The iconic causeway to the Great Salt Lake is also a paved path to paradise for cyclist of all levels.
If you haven’t tried it yourself the Antelope by Moonlight bike ride is the perfect opportunity.
The family friendly ride is for all ages and abilities. There’s a tailgate party, prizes, and the moon is showing up in full to guide the way.
Neka Roundy is the ride coordinator. She says this year’s ride is the 25th year and the time is “Ride of the silver serpent”.
Roundy says the path is close to the mainland and communities in the Wasatch Front “yet when you are out here, you are out here. It’s wild and free, and just beautiful out here.”
The Antelope by Moonlight 25th anniversary ride is July 27th. Click here for more information.
