road bike: oktoberfest & shakespeare festival

This event begins with a spectacular autumn ride, takes in Brian Head's annual Oktoberfest, and ends with a live performance of Hamlet at Utah's Shakespeare Festival. Our itinerary is to spin up scenic Cedar Canyon on Saturday morning on the newly reopened road (there was a mud slide last year closing the roadway) to Brian Head where the town is holding its 20th Annual Oktoberfest. After relaxing for a while in Brian Head we'll return to Cedar City in time to enjoy a 7:30pm performance of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Brian Head is situated at 9,800 feet and is one of America's highest incorporated communities and Utah's highest resort town. Our ride on Saturday morning is an out-and-back course which will crest at 10,400 feet before descending to Brian Head; we'll climb Cedar Canyon and cross Cedar Breaks National Monument - so riders should plan on a 62 mile round trip event and 5,500 feet of climbing. There are many motels and a KOA in Cedar City, and riders will need to make their own reservations. Shakespeare Festival tickets should be purchased in advance at www.bard.org. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) in Cedar City on Saturday morning in East Canyon Park located at 500 East Center Street (Highway 14), at 9:00am ready to ride.
