Experience the American Tobacco Trail at night with the Full Moon Fever Bike Ride, with Durham Parks and Recreation. The ride takes place Saturday, September 18th, 2021.
There’s no cost to participate, and you don’t need to register.
Depending on how far you want to ride, choose one of these two start locations and times.
7:30 p.m. – First Ride Start Time
The first ride start is at 7:30 p.m. in front of Mellow Mushroom (410 Blackwell Street) in downtown Durham. That group will ride down the American Tobacco Trail and meet up with the second group that meets at 8:30 p.m. in front of Bean Traders (105 W North Carolina 54). This ride is approximately 32 miles.
8:30 p.m. – Second Ride Start Time
The second group will meet at 8:30 p.m. in front of Bean Traders (105 W North Carolina 54) on Hwy 54 at Fayetteville Street, and ride to the New Hope Church Road Trailhead, and then turn around. This ride is approximately 16 miles.
Both groups will ride together on the American Tobacco Trail to the end of the pavement at New Hope Church Road, and then turn around and head back towards Durham.
You can turn around whenever you’d like. No riders will be dropped from within the main group. The pace is up to you, but this is typically a very casual bike ride.
You do need to wear a helmet and to have lights.
If the weather is iffy, check Durham Parks and Recreation’s Facebook page. They’ll post by 6 p.m. if the ride is canceled due to weather.
