Bicyclists can ride under Moab moon

One of the bicycle rides during the Skinny Tire Festival in Moab is a ride to Dead Horse Point State Park.

The event organizers are putting on another event June 6-7 featuring that particular ride itself, but this time in the late evening.

Moonshadows in Moab is a fully supported 44-mile ride with 2,700 feet of climbing, overlooking Canyonlands National Park and the Colorado River.

As the sun sets, riders can watch a full moon rise over the La Sal Mountains with canyon shadows surrounding them.

The event will include multiple rides, dinner, music and a remote location for cyclists.

The ride includes a light dinner at Dead Horse Point State Park. A post event celebration with live music takes place at Frankie D’s in Moab.

The rest of the weekend includes a time trial hosted by Uranium Bicycles and a relaxed Sunday morning recovery ride on a popular local route.

Moonshadows in Moab, the Skinny Tire Festival and the Moab Century Tour are fundraiser events for cancer survivorship and research programs. Early registration is encouraged.
