Cyclers had their choice of four different desert rides.

The Emery County Cycling Association (MECCA) presented the 17th annual San Rafael Mountain Bike Festival on May 16-18. It all began with registration at 1 p.m. on May 16, at the John Wesley Powell Museum in Green River. After that the entire group of about 110 riders took a ride out toward the airport - FM Hill. This ride was followed by a spaghetti dinner and prize drawing. All riders received a prize.

The grand prizes included three new bicycles, a weeks stay in a condominium and a travel package worth over $100 from the Castle Country Travel Bureau. After a big breakfast on Saturday the riders split up to do their choice of four different desert rides. Each ride was lead by local guides (MECCA members) and followed by a support wagon with bike tools, supplies, and ice water.

The Emery County Sheriff's Posse cooked their famous Dutch oven dinner that evening and the group heard a few words from Mayor Glen Johnson of Green River, Drew Sitterud and Gary Kofford, Emery County commissioners. Sunday began with a continental breakfast followed by a final ride down Black Dragon. Every rider reported they had a wonderful time. There were even fewer injuries this year than usual, just a few scrapes and bruises.
