Dune & Moon.

**Sting as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen in 1984's Sci-Fi thriller "Dune."

No, I'm not referring to the crazy movie based on the crazy book featuring STING, "ornithopters," and very large city-destroying worms. This is a once in a lifetime bike ride for most...or never, if you don't know about it. This is a ride to plan an entire vacation around, so check it!

ONCE EACH YEAR the National Park Service stays open late, deep inside the geographical odyssey that is White Sands National Monument. This "Moonlight Ride" is amazing, and should be done at all costs if you have the time. Ripples of wind-blown, sun bleached and time-worn sand roll in dunes hundreds of feet high seemingly forever. At 275 square miles, this is no easy place to survive..but the starkness of it all by moonlight won't ever be forgotten. Join the NPS for the FULL MOON BIKE RIDE for just $5.oo per adult, and $2.50 for the crumb-crunchers under 16. The ride is eight miles long, and you will enter the very heart of the park's dunes. The eerie quiet and mind blowing scenery will stay with you when you fall asleep. It's not uncommon to see bobcats, foxes, and mountain lions on the prowl, so if you have night vision goggles, get them out of your phony ice cream truck and book this trip!

OCTOBER 3rd, 8 to 11pm....visit for more information!

Funny, I grew up and went to school about an hr from White Sands.
There is some SICK riding not more than 30 miles from there.
