The BikeHouston Moonlight Ramble is Houston's oldest charity bike ride and draws more than 2,000 cyclists, many of whom join us each year and add the latest commemorative Ramble t-shirt to their collection. This fun night-time bike ride suitable for most ages and abilities.

This year's ride will start and end at Discovery Green, where the Ramble festival will be taking place from 8 pm to midnight. Join us before the ride for music, food and drinks, and last-minute bike tune-ups, and show us your wildest bike decorations and costumes! After the ride, the party continues with music, beer from Saint Arnold, snacks, and prizes for best illuminated bike, best costume, and more.

The Moonlight Ramble is BikeHouston's signature event and a fundraiser to support safe streets in Houston.

FAQs
Why did the time change to 9 pm?

The original midnight departure time made it difficult for many, such as those with young children or morning obligations, from joining. To make the event more accessible to all, the departure time was bumped up three hours to 9 pm but still retains its moonlight appeal.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

All ages are welcome, and children 12 and under are free! Bike seats and trailers are welcome for the kids. This is a fun ride, not a race! IDs are required at the beer tents.

What other requirements are there to ride?

All riders must wear a helmet and have front and rear lights or reflectors on their bikes.
