May is National Bike Month, and C-U does not sleep on getting active and celebrating it. there are plenty of local activities to participate in, including one perfect for night owls. Four different bike shops are participating in a Full Moon Night Ice Cream Ride, taking place this Wednesday. The ride begins at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana at 7:40 and lasts 22 miles, taking you on a pleasant, moonlit ride on mostly empty country roads. The ride includes a stop at Sidney Dairy Barn for some well-earned ice cream.
This is a free, family-friendly event that includes lots of activities other than the ride. The ride itself is optional.
Check out the event page for more information on the evening ride. Don’t forget: State law requires lights and helmets for night riding.
