On Saturday, September 14, the Lawrence Hopewell Trail and Mercer County Parks Commission will host the sixth annual Full Moon Bike Ride in Mercer Meadows. The event runs from 7:30 to 11:00 p.m., starting in the picnic pavilion area of Mercer Meadows Park.

The six-mile ride on the LHT and other Mercer Meadow trails will offer a magical experience, with twinkling lights under a tree canopy, and live music, among other activities. 

Before the bike ride, attendees are invited to bring a picnic dinner, decorate their bikes or enjoy a campfire.

Adults and children of all ages are welcome at the activities prior to the bike ride, with the expectation that adults supervise their children at all times. The full moon bike ride itself is open to adults and children aged 12 and above. For riders under 18, helmets are required by law. The LHT encourages helmets for all riders for safety reasons, and also suggests the use of bike lights.
