MECCA Plans Fall Wedge Bike Ride
Fall Festival Bike the Swell will be held on Sept. 22-24 . The $45 fee includes Friday night spaghetti dinner; Saturday morning continental breakfast; Saturday night Dutch oven dinner; and a prize drawing (must be present to win). Everyone will receive a prize and one participant will win a new bike.
The itinerary will be, Sept. 22- Check-in at the Wedge Overlook, beginning at 1 p.m. There will be a ride that afternoon at 3 p.m. After the ride enjoy dinner at the Wedge camping area. Plan to stay at a motel or bed and breakfast in Emery County (Huntington, Castle Dale or Ferron) or camp at the Wedge. The prize drawing will be at 6 p.m. If you don't make it on Friday, we'll check you in Saturday morning.
Sept. 23- Join us for breakfast at the Wedge; then choose a ride that suits your biking ability from beginner to advanced (you'll need to bring a lunch and snacks for the ride) - there will be no shortage of views as you ride this part of the San Rafael and Utah's "Little Grand Canyon." That evening, enjoy a Dutch oven dinner and campfire stories beginning at 5 p.m. - maybe even a ride by moonlight (if there's interest and the moon cooperates).
Sept. 24- Breakfast on your own before setting out to ride again, this time to the Buckhorn Pictograph panel (has been featured in National Geographic magazine). Register on line at www.biketheswell.org. Call 653-2500 or 653-2440 for more information.
