There will be a Moonlight ride on the Shining Sea Bikeway on Friday 11/19/21. This will be the Full Beaver Moon. There is disagreement over the origin of November’s beaver moon name. Some say it comes from Native Americans setting beaver traps during this month, while others say the name comes from the heavy activity of beavers building their winter dams. Another name is the frost moon. Moonrise is at 5:49PM so we should see the moon during the entire ride. Fall nights are wonderful riding as the cooler weather makes for less humid air. Hope to see you there…
