Moon Cycle Bike Ride on Valentine's Day

Full Moon Bike Ride on Valentine's Day
The Bicycle Commuter Contest is all about encouraging people to try (or continue) biking as a means of transportation. We also love to ride our bikes for fun, fitness, and to connect with community. What better way to build a biking community than to meet for a social ride? We don't have time to organize any more events here at the BCC right now, but here's an independently organized monthly night ride that looks like tons of fun: Moon Cycle is a full-moon bike ride that happens to fall on Valentines Day this month! Meet at the Kissing Couple statue on Percival Landing at 6pm this Friday and build some community! 


The Capital Bicycling Club also offers Social Rides, check out their newsletter here. The CBC is a big sponsor of the Bicycle Commuter Contest, and are offering free club membership to all participants in the BCC this year!
