“The 2018 Lawrence Hopewell Trail Full Moon Ride was magical. As the sun set, about 400 nightriders arrived at Mercer Meadows,” said LHT co-president, Becky Taylor. “Under the slowly emerging glow of the August full moon, the cyclists wended their way past ponds illuminated by lanterns, rode under a tree canopy with tiny, sparkling lights and cycled on through open meadows for their six-mile ride. It was so cool.”
