road bike: antelope island

Early spring is a great time to ride Antelope Island, before the mosquitoes come out in force. This familiar, mostly flat 40-mile route starts at the east end of the causeway, circles the Visitors' Center, and turns around at Fielding Garr Ranch. We'll hop to see ample buffalo, perhaps a few antelope, and hopefully less traffic on a Sunday. As a change of pace, let's try an afternoon ride. Meet at the Council Hall parking lot located across from the State Capitol building on 300 North at noon to carpool or caravan to the toll booth at the entrance to the causeway. If you plan to meet us at the causeway, please email or phone Katie (435-901-2599). Bring $3 as an entrance fee to Antelope Island and also a snack for our regroup at Garr Ranch. If there's interest in grabbing a drink or post-ride nosh after the ride, we'll pull into The Garage on North Beck St. before heading up to the Capitol.
