Cycle Out — Salt Lake UT (CO-SLUT)

Cycle Out Salt Lake UT is an LGBT and allies cycling group. They are mainly road cyclists, but there are members of the group that also mountain bike. They started off as Team Try-Angles. Team Try-Angles has been around since 2007 and been sponsored by Club Try-Angles since then. The CO-SLUT group was started last year as Team Try-Angles wanted to expand the group, participate in more rides, and promote cycling in our community. The group has over 70 members that have different levels of participation. We discuss biking tips, cycling tours, and activities, and schedule group rides. There are all levels of cyclists in the group. The group is helpful and friendly, will introduce new riders to cycling, and help to push and motivate each other. Events they have planned for this year are Mesquite Madness on March 17, The Salt Lake Marathon Bike Tour, AIDS Lifecycle, and Harmon’s Best Dam Bike Ride (MS 150) in Logan. A spring social will be coming up in April.

Mountain West Flag Football League

Mountain West Flag Football League was created to provide healthy recreational sports for the Salt Lake area’s LGBTA community with more than 80 players every season. The league participates in the National Gay Flag Football League, which boasts over 200 teams in 20 leagues in the United States and Canada.
The MWFFL continues to grow each year and embraces anyone who wants to participate and allows everyone the opportunity to play and learn flag football. They also have a variety of volunteer positions available for those wishing to participate but not wanting to play.
There is a $60 registration fee due by March 30.
They also host open play, which is a great opportunity for individuals without football skills or background to learn about flag football, the league and to find volunteer opportunities. Everyone is drafted to a team and will have the opportunity to participate.
The league plays at Big Cottonwood Regional Park, 4350 S. 1300 East, Wednesdays at 6 p.m.
