Moonrise Bike Ride 2023

Moonrise Bike Ride is Ottawa Bike and Trail's premier Bikepacking and Music Adventure on the Flint Hills Trail.   

Moonrise Bike Ride Main Event (August 19-20)

Join us as we load up our bicycles and ride the Flint Hills Trail to Pomona Lake State Park for an evening of good food, live music, and camping under the stars.   You can choose to ride the traditional, 20-mile, route from Ottawa to Pomona State Park.  Or, you can choose the longer 50-mile route from Council Grove to Pomona State Park.  Or, you can choose to ride both routes, provided you have transportation back to your starting point.  

The Main Event ticket includes two route options, catered chuck-wagon dinner, evening entertainment, full breakfast, non-alcoholic beverages, State Park admission and tent camping spot, gear transportation, and more!

Moonrise Campfire 2-Night Option (August 18-20th)

If you want more Moonrise Bike Ride fun sign up for our Moonrise Campfire 2-night option.  You'll start the weekend with a Friday night campout at Base Camp Flint Hills.  Basecamp Flint Hills is right on the Flint Hills Trail about halfway between Council Grove and Pomona Lake State Park.  You can ride from Council Grove to Base Camp on Friday evening and then ride the rest of the way to Pomona Lake State Park on Saturday for the big event.   

Moonrise Campfire includes all of the benefits of the Main Event PLUS dinner Friday evening, camping at Base Camp Flint Hills, campfire entertainment, full breakfast on Saturday morning, and gear transportation.
