The Moonlight Loop is an evening bicycle ride of approximately 19 miles around scenic Columbus, Indiana, to benefit Columbus Animal Care Services (CACS). The ride will take place on Saturday, August 5, 2017 Modeled after the Indy N.I.T.E. ride in Indianapolis, Indiana, the ride will make a loop around the City of Columbus, passing several architectural gems along the way. 2017 marks the 4th year for this ride. In the three years of the ride’s existence, the event has netted over $30,000 for Animal Care Services.
The Moonlight Loop is a fundraiser for Columbus Animal Care Services (CACS), which is a department of the City of Columbus. We are located at 2730 Arnold Street. The agency provides shelter services as well as field services for the community. All Moonlight Loop funds generated through this event are used to support the agency’s Adoption Medical Fund which covers spaying and neutering costs, pet care services, veterinarian treatment for pets housed at the facility, medical requirements for transports, and pet food as well as promotion of adoptions and educational programs.
NOTE: There will not be a road/lane closing so your vigilance is imperative. Bicyclists are required to wear a helmet and have both a headlight and taillight to participate in the ride. A small number of headlights, taillights and helmets MAY be available for purchase at the ride, through our bike vendors but please come prepared.
Due to the inherent danger of riding at night, individual riders must be at least 16 years old. Younger riders are more than welcome to ride while attached to a person 16 or older via a tandem bicycle, or bicycle attachment.
