    Antelope Island 50k MTB Race

    As the largest island in the Great Salt Lake, Antelope Island is home to an abundant array of scenic vistas, sandy beaches, wild buffalo, pronghorn antelope (hence the name) and rugged mountainous terrain. The backcountry single track in the White Rock Bay Area provides an intimate opportunity to experience many of the natural beauties the Island has to offer all while being on a bike. The Antelope 50k will be the first mountain bike race to be held at the Island in a very long time.

    Come join us Saturday, April 18th at 9:00 AM at the White Rock Bay trailhead!

    More info and registration @ ENDURA EVENTS

    With the warm weather we've been having, I'd imagine the gnats would be pretty bad by April of this year. Anyone been out there lately?

    My wife and I rode there 2 weeks ago. It was pretty bad for bugs then, could have used a dust mask to keep from inhaling our recommended daily protein intake. But maybe it's gotten better since then.
