World’s Original Nighttime Bicycle Ride
KSHE 95 and Big River Race Management present the return of the Moonlight Ramble Bike Ride on Saturday, August 17th in Downtown St. Louis!
The annual Moonlight Ramble is the “World’s Original Nighttime Bicycle Ride” held in St. Louis, Missouri at night near the full moon in August.
Now celebrating its 55th ride, thousands of St. Louis bicyclists take to the streets, every summer, to take part in this unique, family-friendly event.
The event includes a leisurely bike ride through the streets of St. Louis, food trucks, a vendor/booth area, a commemorative event shirt, and an after-ride party with snacks, drinks, live music, and the opportunity to be a part of a St. Louis tradition, which keeps riders coming back year after year.
Riders may choose between a short (9.5 mile) and long (18.5 mile) ride. Advance choice is not required and the price is the same for either distance.
The Moonlight Ramble® is a leisurely ride to enjoy Saint Louis at night, largely free from traffic. It is NOT a race. There are no prizes, awards, places or official times.

“Hubbard Radio was committed to finding a capable partner that could continue this signature St. Louis event for years to come, with a priority of keeping the event downtown. We are thrilled that Matt Helbig and his team at Big River Race Management will take over this event and ensure its future growth and success,” said Hubbard’s Director of Integrated Marketing and Events, Brad Buehlhorn.
“The Moonlight Ramble is an iconic event for the City of St. Louis and we are absolutely delighted to continue on its storied tradition!” said Matt Helbig, co-owner of Big River Race Management. “St. Louis has a vibrant and diverse cycling community and we look forward to bringing that community together for an unforgettable experience on the car-free, moonlit streets of St. Louis. The Moonlight Ramble is a unique, family friendly experience I want to enjoy with my children, and in the future, them with their children.”
Big River is proud to name St. Louis Bicycle Works as this year’s charity partner. “We’re excited to learn that Big River has taken over the reins of the Moonlight Ramble,” said Patrick Van Der Tuin, executive director, BWorks. “And we’re honored that Big River picked BWorks as the charity partner to benefit from this long-standing cycling tradition in the St. Louis region; especially as BWorks is celebrating our 30th anniversary.
