The September series of the Sundance Ladies Day mountain bike program will begin Sept. 4 and continues each Friday during the month on the Sundance mountain.

The package includes four days of 2 1/2-hour instruction, an all-day mountain bike lift pass, and rental of a mountain bike. All levels of abilities are invited to participate, and the cost is $160 per person for the full series. If participants have their own mountain bike, the cost is $115.Sundance also offers a citizen's series cross country mountain bike race on Sept. 12. The race is designed with fun in mind for all skill levels.

"Fall is an incredible time to mountain bike Sundance," said Jerry Warren, director of skiing and mountain operations. "Because we keep the lifts running as long as the weather will allow us, mountain bikers find some of the most scenic experiences of their lives on the Sundance trail system. They ride directly through the deep gold of changing aspen and the fiery red of changing oak. There is nothing quite like it."

Mountain biking will run daily through mid-October. For more information, call 223-4849.
