Each year the Moonlight Ramble boasts of thousands of riders and takes place in August. This is the night time ride that every St Louisan who can, should participate in, at least once! This event has been held, "rain or (moon)shine" each year since 1964! The ride starts just after midnight, when the route is revealed. There is a short (about 10 miles) and long (just under 20 miles) ride which takes the cyclists through the streets of St Louis. Each year the route is different so each year it is a brand new "ride" for returning participants.
