A pack of riders streaks past the start of the Antelope Island Moonlight Bike Ride on Friday night, illuminated by headlights, glowsticks, and the glowing full moon ahead of them.

ANTELOPE ISLAND SATE PARK — The 23rd annual Antelope by Moonlight Bike Ride will take place on the night of Friday, July 15. The annual family-friendly, noncompetitive bike ride starts at 10 p.m. at White Rock Bay and will be lit by the almost full moon.

The 24-mile route goes from the bay to the historic Fielding Garr Ranch and back. Those interested can register online at or at 801-451-3286.

The cost is $25 per person before 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5, or $35 thereafter. The registration fee includes park entry, light refreshments, which will be served until midnight, and a collector's T-shirt.

Prizes will be awarded to participants who choose to dress up or decorate their bike. Judging will be at 9 p.m. at White Rock Bay.

Utah law requires all night riders use a working headlight and reflectors. Working headlights and taillights are required. ANSI/Snell-approved helmets are mandatory for this ride, and the use of reflective clothing is recommended.
