Event Details

Imagine the sight, as hundreds of lighted bikes come riding toward you along the streets of Lenexa-at midnight. That's just what happens when the City of Lenexa and the Lenexa Optimist Club host their annual Moonlight Bike Ride.

The fun begins in Old Town Lenexa as hundreds of riders prepare for this pleasant evening or early morning ride. Participants include families, children, youth groups, corporate groups, and avid bike enthusiasts. Bikers choose either the 12.2 mile course which includes the newly opened subsurface Meritex Executive Park or the shorter 9.2 mile course. Aid stations are set up along the course to provide riders a chance to catch their breath. Riders finish back in the Old Town area with refreshments and prizes.

Many volunteers along with the Lenexa Police Department monitor the route to keep it safe for the riders. Each registrant must have a front light, rear reflector and must wear a helmet. Bike safety is strictly enforced.

This fun event began in 1996 and won the coveted "Best Program Award" in 1997 by the Kansas Recreation and Parks Association. Route maps are available at the Lenexa Community Center.
