Come join park rangers this Halloween for a 15-mile round trip bike ride along the Shark Valley Loop. The bike ride will begin at 5:30 p.m., and will reach the Observation Tower by sunset. Then the group will return through dusk and enjoy listening to the sounds of the Everglades--eerie natural sounds instead of scary sounds! Who knows what animals will be seen (or heard) along the ride as well! 

The limit is 25 people, first come first served; please call the Shark Valley Visitor Center to make reservations (305-221-8776). Please have all proper safety gear (including your own bicycle and helmet). Please bring water (1 gallon per person recommended).  Riders are also advised if bringing a head light, to have it be adjustable to shine down instead of out.

Come join us at Shark Valley for a fun bike ride, and a "healthy" way to spend Halloween night!
