If you’re an insomniac or you just like fresh air, twinkling stars and exercise, Antelope Island State Park is holding its annual Moonlight Bike Ride on Friday, July 6, at 10 p.m.

The noncompetitive event is open to all ages and registration fees range from $17 to $27, which includes a collector’s T-shirt, park entry and refreshments. To register, visit http://daviscountyutah.gov/go/moonlight. Early registration fees are available through June 22.

The theme this year is "End of the World — Mayan Meltdown." Riders who want to dress up or decorate their bike can meet at the Marina at 9:30 p.m. to be judged for prizes.

The ride covers 22 miles on asphalt. At historic Garr Ranch —the halfway point — refreshments will be served until midnight and prizes will be awarded. One prize, a new bicycle, will come from The Biker’s Edge.

By law, all night riders must use a working headlight and reflectors. Helmets are also mandatory. You might want to start thinking now how to incorporate a helmet into your Mayan costume. Procrastinators and the forgetful needn’t worry. Lights and helmets will be sold at the event.

Proceeds for the Moonlight Bike Ride will go to Friends of Antelope Island for "projects that enhance the visitor experience."
