Anthem Moonlight Ride
August 16, 2014 - Sports Backers Stadium

Check out a great photo slideshow from the 2013 event!

Take in the sights and sounds of RVA by bike... under a full moon... with 3,500 other riders decked out in crazy lights and costumes. Then top it off with pizza, ice cream, a live concert and a Blue Moon beer (for you 21-and-uppers!). We even have plenty of exhibitors and interactive activities for the fam, so you’re guaranteed to have a fabulous night on the town!

With a Full Moon (17-mile) course and a Half Moon (8-mile) option, there’s something for everyone. And if you’re not in it for the yellow jersey, take advantage of our well-stocked rest stops on Monument Avenue and in Bryan Park.
