Thousands will gather in Piedmont Park to celebrate the fifth annual Atlanta Moon Ride on Friday, June 9th! The festivities include a pre-party in Piedmont Park at 7 p.m., followed by a lively, 6-mile bike ride through some of Atlanta’s coolest neighborhoods at 11 p.m. alongside the Atlanta Police Department. The new route has riders passing through Virginia Highland- home to numerous bars, restaurants, and spectator events.
Participants are encouraged to ride with flair and compete in the costume contest, where one lucky winner will receive a vacation for four to the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast, including a private flight, sponsored by Ascension Air, and a 3-night stay at the WaterColor Inn. Other prizes include tickets to Atlanta United, cash, and more.
All proceeds from the Atlanta Moon Ride will benefit Bert’s Big Adventure
