Bike Brighton Full Moon Bike Rides

There are 4 changes in 2022 for the rides.


  1. Location of Bike Rides: Meet on the south side of Brighton City Hall located at 500 South 4th Avenue.
  2. Time: See "Dates & Times" in the Ride section below
  3. There are now two (2) rides at the same time:  This year there will be an Advanced Rider Group and a Recreational Rider Group.  Each ride starts at a different time.
    a.  Definition of an Advanced Rider:  People in this group are strong and fearless bicyclists or enthused and confident
              bicyclists.  These are people who will ride regardless of road and weather conditions, or are comfortable in riding on a
              road even if it does not have a bike lane.  (This group of people uses riding for commuting, enjoys a faster speed, and 
              likes to go faster on streets compared to the Recreational Rider)

           b.  Definition of a Recreational Rider:  People who enjoy bicycling when they are confident in their safety, or people who
                would enjoy bicycling if they felt safer doing it.  (This group of people like the group setting, like mostly trails and some 
                bike lanes, and move slower then the Advanced Riders.)
