road bike: bear lake getaway
Rain cut short last year's mid-week getaway to Bear Lake, so let's hope for better weather and the opportunity to do all 3 rides this June. On Monday we'll meet in Hyrum, then ride the gentle incline of Blacksmith Fork Canyon to Hardware Ranch. We'll then drive through Logan to Garden City and check into our KOA reserved campsites. Tuesday's ride is the virtually flat 50-mile loop around Bear Lake; on Wednesday we'll ride Minnetonka Cave Rd. at the north end of the lake (45 miles roundtrip). The KOA campground offers full bathroom facilities, a pool, WiFi, a kitchen and pavilion, electricity, and good shade. Tent sites accommodate up to 6 people and several tents each. This trip is limited to 18 people and per person cost is factored by the number of people on each site; figure between $10 and $13 per person per night. KOA also offers cabin rentals and RV hookups for those who choose not to camp. A 2-BR cabin with bathroom that sleeps 6 runs about about $180 per night. Cost of RV sites varies according to configuration and hookups. NOTE: I'll make reservations for tent sites; those desiring a cabin rental or RV site must make their own reservations. Please contact me with your stated intention to either camp or make your own arrangements. Some time in April I'll collect a $10 deposit from campers. This deposit will become nonrefundable on 5/15/15.
