Bike under the stars at Fermilab this July


Registration is now open for the Chase the Moon Midnight Bike Ride presented by The Conservation Foundation.

This 9th annual Chase the Moon event will take place on Sat., July 28 into Sun., July 29 and will kick off from the Warrenville Commons Shopping Center at the corner of Rt. 59 and Batavia Rd. in Warrenville with the route taking riders through Fermilab.

Riders can put their pedals to work for conservation as they travel at their own pace under a star-filled sky.  Festivities will begin with a 10PM pre-party, and the bike ride will kick off at 12:01AM.  Nocturnal riders will have the opportunity to travel the typically limited access roads at Fermilab, and enjoy a healthy breakfast at the end of their nighttime journey.

Chase the Moon is a ride, not a race, and the length of the route is determined by each respective rider. Dedicated bicycle enthusiasts will be able to ride a 20-mile route, while more recreational riders can shorten the route if desired. The Chase the Moon Midnight Bike Ride is presented by and all proceeds benefit The Conservation Foundation.

Due to changing regulations at Fermilab, the ride will no longer be able to take place after this year.
