Antelope Island Bike Ride
It's a hot summer day, but as the sun goes down, you think about cooling off under the moon. The Antelope by Moonlight Bikeride is in its 23rd year as a friendly, non-competitive event at Antelope Island State Park. You're in the middle of the Great Salt Lake and in the park afterhours. Normally, that's off-limits to the public. The ride starts at the White Rock Bay and is lit by the moon. The 24-mile route goes from White Rock Bay to the historic Fielding Garr Ranch and back. The theme for this year is "Riding with the Stars." Start thinking about what costume you'll wear—prizes will be given. Antelope Island State Park, 4528 W. 1700 South, Syracuse, 801-773-2941, Friday, July 15, $25 registration, check-in 7:30 p.m., ride 10 p.m.,
