RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride is a festive, family-friendly bike ride in the cool of the night during the hottest time of the year.

On Friday, August 5, from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., anyone who signs up and pays the registration fee can join a group leaving from and returning to Sports Backers Stadium.

Cyclists can choose between a 3-mile course and an 8-mile course. The course has lights, party stops, costumes, lit-up bikes, and a post-ride party.

While temperatures are still expected to reach 90 degrees on August 5, it is predicted to be 75 degrees after the sun goes down.
