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.
