join us on Labor Day as we enjoy the beautiful pedestrian and cyclist
only section of Route 83 from Marble Mtn Sno-Park up to Lava Canyon on

wonderfully cool creeks for toe dipping.

There are a few seats and spaces available for people and their
bikes and participation is on a first come, first serve basis so
please RSVP your intent to participate as soon as possible. We can
also accommodate more riders if anyone is interested in volunteering

There are no food or water facilities along the route so bring enough
fluids and food to get you through your day. We will have enough
coolers on hand for each person to bring a few food items that need to
remain cold. There is a small convenience store located a few miles
before reaching the destination.
