Moonlight Mass Night Cycle


Moonlight Mass has been cancelled indefinitely. Click through for further information

 

The only thing religious about Cape Town’s Moonlight Mass – scheduled this month on Thursday, 2 July 2015 – is the pious devotion participants hold for the event. The regular full moon bike ride aims to raise awareness for cycling as a viable transportation alternative, much in the same vein as the Cape Town Naked Bike Ride did. 

This full moon cycle isn’t aimed at lycra-clad leg-shaved speed freaks, but Capetonians who commute using the good ol’ bicycle. The ride highlights the fact that Cape Town has an embarrassingly high carbon emission rate that can be offset by using greener transportation methods like carpooling or public transport.

Cyclists are asked to meet under the Green Point roundabout at 9pm. At 9:15pm the ride kicks off through Granger Bay Boulevard and onto Beach Road towards Mouille Point, up Three Anchor Bay Road and then into Riebeek Street before everyone regroups on Long Street. The fun starts when the masses take over downtown, riding along Loop Street, then Longmarket Street to finish at Greenmarket Square.

THERE ARE ONLY FOUR SIMPLE RULES TO FOLLOW:

  • Wear a helmet (IT’S THE LAW!)
  • Use reflective gear
  • Switch on the lights
  • Obey all traffic laws

GET SOCIAL AT THE 2015 #MOONLIGHTMASS NIGHT CYCLE IN CAPE TOWN

Don’t forget to use the #MoonlightMass hashtag on any of your favourite social media platforms! And if you’re wanting to curb that pesky carbon footprint and can’t cycle to and from the event, then catch a late night ride on the bike-friendly My CiTi bus; the service runs until 22:30pm and you can bring your bicycle on board.   

OTHER FULL MOON NIGHT RIDES AROUND THE WESTERN CAPE

Additionally, the Moonlight Mass hysteria has influenced two-wheeled enthusiasts all over Cape Town, going as far as Stellenbosch.

STELLENBOSCH: The Stellies-based group will meet up at the Rooiplein on Stellenbosch’s campus at 8pm. Keep in mind that this event extends to more than just cyclists: pedestrians, skateboarders and even those on scooters are welcome.

HELDERBERG: This group rides every Full Moon at 8:30pm from a starting point within the Somerset West, Strand and Gordon's Bay area. Follow the group’s Facebook page to keep an eye out for the latest details on the route.
