Attention Night Owls...

Looking for Saturday evening plans and have the opportunity to sleep in on Sunday? The 46th annual Moonlight Ramble is happening tomorrow! This event is an absolute BLAST, if you have never been?!

It is a family-friendly, all-night bike ride through downtown, that typically draws over 10,000 riders a year. The ride itself begins at 1 minute past midnight and follows a short (7 miles) or a longer (14 miles) route through the streets of Saint Louis.

The event is well patrolled by the St Louis City police and there are a number of sponsors, providing food and drink along the way.

In addition, there are activities before and after the ride, distinctive glow-in-the-dark commemorative T-shirts, plus the chance to be part of a unique spectacle draw recreational cyclists of all ages and skill levels, many of them returning year after year.

Registration/Sign-In: in downtown St Louis at Soldiers' Memorial Plaza, 14th and Chestnut tomorrow night (Saturday) from 9 - 11:59 p.m.

Cost: $30 for adults (price includes ride T-shirt), $10 for children (must be accompanied by adult and price includes T-shirt), $100 Premier Rider option (price includes jersey for Premier Rider)

What all of the buzz is all about...

One word of advice: skip the tandem bike and go solo. I speak from experience... =)
