Put your pedals to work for conservation as you travel at your own pace under a star-filled sky, ending by 3:00am. Nocturnal riders will have the opportunity to travel the typically limited access roads at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, or Fermilab, and enjoy a healthy breakfast at the end of their nighttime journey.

Chase the Moon is a ride, not a race, and the length of the route is determined by the will of your legs. Dedicated bicycle enthusiasts will be able to ride a 25-mile route, while more recreational riders can shorten the route if desired.

All participants must wear a helmet at all times and must have a headlight (flashlight will do) during the ride. Participants under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Children riding their own bicycles will need to register also.

All registered participants receive:
• A short-sleeved, 100% cotton Chase the Moon T-shirt
• Prizes for Best Lit Bicycle and Best Decorated Helmet
• Bicycle repair (Sag Wagons) will be available
• Breakfast supplied upon return

All registration info at the site above.

As someone who has done the commute home from a church youth group at 10:00 PM a few times, I look forward to riding with more riders in the dark. :-D

Not free. I think its about $40. I did it a few years ago when it was a benefit for the scouts. Very cool. So dark when riding around Fermi Lab that you end up just following the little red lights ahead of you.

The cost should be on the registration page of the web site.

Looks like a pretty cool ride. But for those of you who don't want to travel to Aurora, Midnight Marauders "The Moving Ride", will be meeting at the Handlebar @11:30pm for its monthly ride! Everyone spin safely!
