Shift Gears with a Midnight Bike Ride

Bike Icon

A traditional event that supports youthful pursuits has found itself a new ally.

The Moonlight Ramble has raised money for youth hostels and other nonprofits in the St. Louis region since 1964. Since AARP members are always looking for ways to maintain an active lifestyle, in addition to the high percentage of cyclists at this event aged 45+, AARP in St. Louis has stepped up to be part of this healthy and fun St. Louis tradition on August 9th.

“We want to show people we’re cooler than they think,” said Anita Parran, AARP associate state director for public affairs.

Not a race, the Ramble offers no prizes or trophies and is open to all ages. Participants have two options: a 10.5-mile course and an 18.5-mile route. Proceeds benefit HI-USA, the American affiliate of Hostelling International.

Along with serving as a sponsor, AARP will pay the registration for the first 50 AARP members who send an email to AARP Missouri will have a photo booth and a special gift for all visitors to our area before the ride. We are also hosting a listening post at which anyone can answer the question: “What would make St. Louis an even greater place to live?”
