Moonlight Ramble

When: Sat., Aug. 29, 9 p.m. 2015

Sometimes you need a solo bike ride to clear your head, appreciate the neighborhood and get some good thinking done. And sometimes you need to join thousands of your friends, neighbors and other two-wheeled enthusiasts for a leisurely midnight pedaling fun-fest. The first Moonlight Ramble in 1964 offered the former contemplative experience for the founder, but the event has grown into a rollicking cycling street party for helmeted people of all ages. If you want to ramble along, registration opens at 9 p.m. Saturday, August 29, at the corner of South Eighth and Cerre streets and costs $10 to $25. The ride rolls off at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, August 30, and you can choose to pedal 10.5 or 18.5 miles. Visit www.moonlightramble.com to learn more.
