ST. GEORGE — October is the month when thousands converge on St. George and surrounding communities to enjoy pleasant temperatures and a variety of outdoor recreational activities and events.
One of those events, the biannual “Bike with Pike,” will be held Monday at the Confluence Trailhead at 5:30 p.m.
“Bike with Pike” is a family-friendly bike ride with St. George Mayor Jon Pike and members of the St. George City Council, St. George Active Transportation Committee and Southern Utah Bicycle Alliance.
The event features a free hot dog BBQ, music, a bike rodeo and a ride with the mayor along a section of the city’s trail system.
Recently, new way-finding signage has been erected along sections of the Virgin River Trail system to help residents and visitors understand where trails lead and how long it will take to get to their destination.
