The BikeHouston Moonlight Ramble is Houston’s oldest charity bike ride. It draws more than 2,000 cyclists, many of whom join us each year and add the latest commemorative Ramble T-shirt to their collection. This fun night-time bike ride is suitable for most ages and abilities.

Before the ride, join us for music, food and drinks, and last-minute bike tune-ups. Show us your wildest bike decorations and costumes! After the ride, the party continues with music, beer from Saint Arnold, snacks and prizes for the best-illuminated bike, best costume and more.

 

EVENT DETAILS

Pre-ride festival: 8 p.m.

Join us for music, food, and drinks at the pre-ride festival at Discovery Green! Visit our sponsor booths, give your bike a tune-up with our bike shop sponsors, or buy vintage Moonlight Ramble shirts, jerseys, and other once-a-year goodies. BikeHouston volunteers will also be in the crowd looking for the best-illuminated bike, best costume and more to win prizes after the ride.

The festival is located on Avenida de las Americas and Discovery Green.

Ride: 9 p.m.

Ride through historic Houston neighborhoods and see the city like never before! This 10-mile course will include rest stops with music and snacks, and HPD officers will be stationed at intersections for traffic control. BikeHouston volunteers will be posted throughout the route to guide you along your way.

The ride will leave at 9 p.m. and begin and end along Avenida de las Americas. Ambitious cyclists may ride the loop twice, but the course closes at 11 p.m. All riders must wear helmets and have front and rear lights on their bikes.

Post-ride party: 10 p.m. to midnight

After the ride, meet us back at Discovery Green for more music, beer from Saint Arnold, snacks, prizes and other surprises.
