May 18, 2013 - An Unforgettable Sunset into Moonlight Road Cycling Experience.
After the moon rises over the La Sal mountains, the night sky is well lit. Take in the sweet sage of the desert as you make your way to the Earth's edge overlooking the Colorado River two thousand feet below.
Enjoy this fully supported ride by the light of the 59% illuminated moon. At the last hours of daylight, begin your ride and gain 2700 feet in climbing elevation as the sun begins to set. Arrive at Dead Horse Point State Park for a light dinner at the outdoor Moonshadows Café overlooking the Colorado River. Drink in the ambiance at the most unique AID/food station you may ever visit as the moon lights the night sky . Bask in the silvery glow of the moon over Canyonlands before enjoying your thrilling return to the Start/Finish area. Apres- cycling to be scheduled at a local Moab tavern.
