From beginners to experienced cyclists, The Full Moon Bike Ride welcomes everyone for a leisurely ride through some beautiful locations in Oklahoma City under the moonlit night. The ride begins at Myriad Gardens’ Seasonal Plaza, where riders can sign their waivers, purchase t-shirts, and mingle with other riders. The group takes off at sundown, which varies throughout the year but always corresponds to the full moon.

While each route will vary, ride leaders ensure the way is safe and scenic. The pace is casual, at most 10 miles an hour, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy sites you usually wouldn’t see at night. Each bike ride usually takes 30 to 45 minutes, traveling several miles along the Oklahoma River and downtown area.

If you don’t own a bicycle, you can rent one from Spokies OKC and Ride OKC for the event. Ride OKC offers long-term bike rentals – perfect for those visiting out of town – and they can even deliver the bike to the event for free. The Full Moon Bike Ride is strictly bikes, but some riders have seated bikes or bring their dogs in baskets.

Overall, the Full Moon Bike Ride is an excellent way to spend a summer evening in Oklahoma City. With music, beautiful views, and a friendly atmosphere, it’s a great event for families, friends, and anyone who wants to experience the city from a different perspective. Rides occur on the night of a full moon from April to October. Check out for more information on dates and times.
