Moonlight Bike Ride
Join park staff and experienced guides on a moonlight bike ride through some of St. Charles County’s most scenic park trails. Open to cyclists of all ages and skill levels, these relaxing bike rides through woods and prairies take place after the sun goes down beginning in June.
“Through numerous volunteer and staff efforts, the St. Charles County Parks Department has carved out 40 miles of some of the most unique paved and natural-surface trails for biking enthusiasts to enjoy,” says Bettie Yahn-Kramer.
A Moonlight Bike Ride will be offered at Broemmelsiek Park on August 13 from 8:30-11 p.m. and November 11 from 6-8:30 p.m. Broemmelsiek Park’s trails meander over gentle inclines and rolling hills through wooded areas and open plains. Located approximately four miles southwest of the Highway 40 and Hwy DD (WingHaven Boulevard) interchange on Schwede Road, the park features more than seven miles of natural-surface trail.
To participate in these free trail ride opportunities, please register by visiting www.stccparks.org or contact the Parks Department at 636.949.7535. Participants must also provide their own equipment and wear bike-safety helmets. Lights are required on all bikes. For added comfort, guests may also want to bring water, bug spray, and clothes appropriate for the weather.
If unfavorable trail conditions exist, contact the St. Charles County Parks Closure/Cancellation Hotline at 636.949.7475 before heading out.
