bike death valley annual bike trip - February 7, 2008

Jan 14 update...please note! Unfortunately, our dear trip organizer Bob Wright has died unexpectedly. We are scrambling to keep this trip going! If you were on the list to go, please contact Marilyn Bickley and we will be rescheduling the planning meeting. Here is what Bob wrote: We will again escape from the snow, zero temperatures and smog to spend a few days in the vast warm beauty of Death Valley. This trip has been going on for a long time, and we always have a great time. Camping will be at the Furnace Creek campground walk in tent sites. Rides are day trips. Possibilities are Badwater, Artist's Palette, Scotty's Castle, Stovepipe Wells, and perhaps Titus Canyon (Mountain Biking). There are also many good hikes available, including Wildrose Charcoal Kilns, and for the ambitious, Telescope Peak. Showers and swimming are available at Furnace Creek. Itineraries are flexible. We will do group cooking, and stay at the Walk In Tent Sites as before. There will be a planning meeting to organize cooking pods, pod leaders, logistics and carpooling.Cost of the trip is $50.00 per person due on or before the planning meeting which includes camping and food. Transportation and park entrance fees are up to the individuals. If you have a geezer pass (Golden Age Pass) bring it. Please register Marilyn Bickley by January 18.
