You have to admire city bicyclists. You know the kind: always dodging traffic on our town's motorways with grace and agility, making such road-riding look easy. Well, it isn't easy. It takes practice and loads of care to safely bike alongside motorized vehicles. That why we love the Moonlight Ramble
, the yearly ride through St. Louis' city streets, which are closed to all non-bicycle traffic. Plus, it's an ideal way to see the city at night while doing a little cardio along the way. Riders have the option of taking either a seven- or fourteen-mile route, but remember, it's a ramble, not a race, so keep your competitive streak in check and just enjoy the ride. The Ramble begins at midnight, and registration begins — with the traditional festivities and entertainment — at 9 p.m. at Soldiers Memorial (Fourteenth and Chestnut streets). The entrance fee is $30 for adults and $10 for children; tickets can be purchased at www.moonlightramble.org
or on the night of the ride. For more information, visit the website or call 314-644-4660.
