"Experience the American Tobacco Trail at night at our Full Moon Fever Bike Ride with the Durham Community Trail Watch group!
Please note: the ride has two starting times and locations.
7:30 p.m. - Early Start Time
The early start is at 7:30 p.m. in front of Mellow Mushroom (410 Blackwell Street) in downtown Durham. That group will ride down the American Tobacco Trail and meet up with the late group that meets at 8:30 p.m. in front of Bean Traders.
8:30 p.m. - Late Start Time
The late group will meet at 8:30 p.m. in front of Bean Traders (105 W North Carolina 54) on Hwy 54 at Fayetteville Street.
Both groups will ride together on the American Tobacco Trail to the end of the pavement at New Hope Church Road (7.5 miles one way from Bean Traders), and then turn around and head back towards Durham.
Riders are free to turnaround at any point and head back towards Durham or keep going past the end of the pavement to the end of the natural surface trail.
Riding pace is up to each individual rider, but is typically very casual. No riders will be dropped within the main group. The main group will not be responsible for supporting riders separating themselves from the group.
Helmets and lights are required. Rain or unsafe riding conditions cancels the ride. In case of inclement weather, check our website and DPR Facebook and Twitter pages for last minute cancellations. A cancellation statement will be given by 6 p.m. the evening of the ride.
7:30 p.m. group = 30 miles
8:30 p.m. group = 15 miles
There is no cost to participate in this ride!"
