Join us for a night time bike ride under the full moon!

The September full Moon is usually known as the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon because this is the time to harvest and thresh ripened barley. Often, the September Moon is also called the Harvest Moon, but this year the Harvest Moon occurs in October. The Harvest Moon is the Moon that falls nearest the autumnal equinox; this full Moon provides the most light at the time when it’s needed most—to complete the harvest!

Join community cyclists on a 22-mile round-trip night bicycle drive departing shortly before sunset to enjoy both the sunset and moonrise over the prairie on a “pick your speed” trip over very low traffic country roads. Enjoy a stop at Sidney Dairy Barn (credit cards accepted) for ice cream and socializing before you head back on magical moonlit roads. 

State law requires lights, and helmets are recommended.
