Payson High class has students riding 22 miles
The smooth trail begins in Provo and continues for 11 miles until a point at Lone Peak is reached. The students rest for a while and then proceed to come back the way they came. In previous years, her classes have biked from Provo to Thanksgiving Point and taken FrontRunner back. Mrs. Miller’s classes have grown to be too large for the FrontRunner to contain; hence the change in the destination.
Throughout the semester, Mrs. Miller’s classes indulge in many sports that require only one or two people. These activities include golf, tennis, badminton, swimming, bowling, archery, biking, hiking, and any other sport she deems acceptable.
If for any reason a student cannot participate in the biking activity, they can choose to join Mr. Archer’s class in a hike to Mt. Loafer.
Parker Hannifin said this about the bike trip: “It was a pretty long trip, but I got some good exercise, saw some neat scenery, and had a good time overall.” Safety was a key ingredient to the event, with students wearing helmets and heeding to the advice from the supervisors.
