Event Pick: The Anthem Moonlight Ride 

Aug. 6

Summertime in Richmond is perfect for nocturnal living. Fewer people are out and about, there’s less puddinglike humidity to breathe, and you aren’t suffocated under the tyranny of a ruthlessly oppressive sun. So here’s some good news: Sports Backers holds its annual Anthem Moonlight Ride on Saturday, Aug. 6 — because only a two-wheel masochist would consider riding a bike solely for pleasure during daylight hours. Starting at 8 p.m. at Sports Backers Stadium, you can choose between 15- and 8-mile courses to travel through the darkened streets of our concrete jungle with well-stocked rest stops along the way. And don’t worry, the streets are cleared for you. Prizes will be awarded for the best tacky lights and costumes, and a Agee’s Post-Ride Party will be held at Sports Backers Stadium. Call 285-9495 or visit sportsbackers.org.
