Austin's full moon rides fall into two categories : Both rides meet at the Pfluger Pedestrian bridge, are unsupported and 'ride at your own risk'. We try not to drop slow riders, but it can happen, so being prepared is wise -- having lights, tools to change a flat, water, a cell phone, etc.

For more details about individual rides and to get reminders about upcoming rides, join the ATex Full Moon Cruise group on Facebook.

How are the full moon cruise dates/times calculated?

For the monthly rides, the start time is always at 11:59pm, on the night where the middle of the ride (2:00am is what we use) is closest to the time of the fullest moon. This gets us the fullest possible moon on our ride.

For the annual full moon ride, the one in September, the start time is always 2:00am (wheels down between 2:10am and 2:30am) on the Saturday night/Sunday morning where 3:30am (again, the middle of the ride) is closest to the time of the fullest moon.
