It is a first of its kind in the Quincy area, the Moonlight Ride for Hunger at Clat Adams Park beginning at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 5. This year’s proceeds will benefit Horizons Soup Kitchen & Food Pantry in Quincy. Participants will get to choose from three different ride lengths including 4 mile, 11 mile or 19 mile routes, but the highlight of the ride will be the crossing of both Quincy bridges no matter what route you choose. This event is for riders of all experience levels, from beginner to pro.

The hope is that this event will grow and continue to help others and maybe turn into a major family-friendly tourist event that draws people to the Quincy area to showcase just what Quincy has to offer!

Registration is available at Madison-Davis Bicycle Shop located at 8th & Jefferson in Quincy. The cost is $25 plus a canned food item through July 31 and $30 plus a canned food item through the day of the race. Children ages 10-15 years of age can ride for free if accompanied by a paying adult and a canned good for Horizons. Anyone under 10 is unable to participate, due to safety precautions.

Every rider is required to wear a helmet and have proper lighting. Bicycle safety checks will be provided by Madison-Davis Bike Shop at the event.
