Event Update: Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride Rescheduled for Friday, August 26

Let us first say that we really appreciate your patience as we’ve worked to coordinate and reschedule the Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride. As a nonprofit with a mission to inspire active living, we were disappointed that the event designed to get people moving had to be postponed at the last minute due to inclement weather. With months of planning behind it, the untimely change means that our event budget has been exhausted. However, we’ve worked really hard to come up with an alternative solution, one that still allows participants to ride and celebrate under the stars and wisely considers our budget, mission, staff and volunteer time, sponsors, and vendors.

Please join us on Friday, August 26 for the rescheduled Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride! The event will take place in Bryan Park from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. and will feature an open course in the park—this means you can start whenever you prefer and ride the loop in the park as many times as you’d like during that time frame. The Party Zone will be open throughout the duration of the event, allowing you to partake in the festivities before, after, and during your ride. The Party Zone will feature a DIY medal station, yard games, vendors, snacks, Väsen beer, ice cream, and more.

With the rescheduled event, we have a few options for you to consider. Please complete our RSVP form to inform us of your decision no later than August 22.

Although certainly different, we are proud of the plan moving forward and hope you’ll join us under the stars for a magical night in Bryan Park. Our events have been thrown quite a few curveballs over the past few years, but if we’ve learned anything, it’s that a little rain (or even a lot of rain) can’t keep our community from coming together over a shared sense of fun and achievement. Thank you for helping to further our nonprofit mission of creating a more active community!

Thank you!
