road bike bob wright memorial death valley bike ride - February 5, 2009

We will once again escape from the snow, cold temperatures, and smog to pretend like it is spring and spend a few days in the vast warm beauty of Death Valley. Camping will be at the Furnace Creek Campground walk-in tent sites. Rides are day trips and the possibilities are Badwater, Artist's Palette, Scotty's Castle, Stovepiope Wells, and perhaps Titus Canyon (mountain biking). There are also many good hikes available including Wildrose, Charcoal Kilns, and Telescope Peak. Showers and swimming are available at Furnace Creek. Itineraries are flexible. We will do group cooking. The planning meeting is on Jan. 23 at 7:00 p.m. at Jim and Marilyn Bickley's house, 10913 So. Coralville Way (4460 West), South Jordan, Utah 84095. Cooking pods, pod leaders, logistics, and carpooling will be discussed. The cost of the trip is $50 per person, which includes camping and food, due on or before the planning meeting. Transportation and park entrance fees are up to the individuals. If you have a geezer pass (Golden Age Pass), bring it. Please register with Jim or Marilyn Bickley by Jan. 16. Phone is 801-446-0544 or e-mail at
