***CANCELLATION UPDATE: The City of Lenexa and the Lenexa Optimist Club have come to a joint decision to not reschedule the 2017 Moonlight Bike Ride. After much discussion with all parties involved, we decided that we would not be able to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants due to scheduling conflicts. 

All registrants will receive a full refund for ride registration fees. Please be patient, as it will take up to two weeks to process all of the refunds.*** 

Enjoy a 9-mile, closed-course bike ride down 95th Street from Old Town Lenexa through the Meritex caves. Decorate your bicycle in lights for this fun family ride, sponsored in partnership with the Lenexa Optimist Club.
