The Atlanta Moon Ride is back and better than ever! Now in its second year, the 6.5-mile after-dark bike ride is set for tomorrow, Friday the 13th at 10 p.m. The ride will take participants through some of the city’s most unique neighborhoods, including Little Five Points and Midtown, on a safe and traffic-free route.
The nighttime ride starts and ends at Park Tavern, where there will be a pre-party starting at 7 p.m. and an after-party lasting until 2 a.m.
All proceeds from the Atlanta Moon Ride will go toward Bert’s Big Adventure, a nonprofit organization that provides an all-expense paid five-day journey to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Bert Weiss, of The Bert Show, and his wife, Stacey, started the organization in 2003 when they took seven children and their families to Walt Disney World for the first time.
Last year’s ride brought more than 800 people together for a fun evening, and this year the event promises to be even bigger and better with new partnerships, riders in fun costumes and a full moon. This year’s new partnerships include Bicycle Tours of Atlanta and Atlanta Beltline Bicycle who will be offering on-site bicycle rentals for $25 on the night of the ride. Rentals are based on a first come, first served basis through the registration process.
The Atlanta Moon Ride has also partnered with Sopo Bicycle Cooperative, a nonprofit, community-based bike repair shop in Grant Park. Through Sopo, riders can donate used bikes after the race for a chance to win a brand new ride from Peachtree Bikes.
Register today for $30 to support a great cause while having an awesome Friday the 13th nighttime ride through the city!
