Moonlight Madness bike ride

[Note After the ride some of us are going to see midnight showing of "The Dark Knight" at the Senator 5904 York Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21212, Theatre (410)435-8338, Office (410) 435-9892]

Bob Moore's Moonlight Madness bike ride is on: Thursday July 17th. 8:30 start
A memorial ride for Bob Moore

Take a night-time bike tour of Baltimore City on a safe, well lit, mostly flat route of about 20 miles. Get an intimate view of the city after dark. Skyline, neighborhoods and waterfront as well as sights ranging from illuminated classical buildings and monuments to the neon of "The Block", from churches, museums, and City Hall to the enormous "Wizard of Boh".

Ride Start: in front of the Youth Hostel at the corner of Mulberry and Cathedral. (catty-corner from the Pratt Library)

Ride is casual 10-12mph. Approximately 20 miles. You must have a properly functioning bike, be wearing a helmet, and have safety lights on front and back.

I will bring cue sheets.

Sundown is at 8:30 and a nearly full moon rising about the same time.
Spread the word as you see fit. :-)

what exactly is the route? are you going through the dreaded east baltimore neighborhoods?
I don't have the route but it is a small group ride and it gets rave reviews (its a fun ride.)
Where does the ride end? Is the ride open to all?
The ride ends where it starts, at the Hostel and yes it is open to all. Please help spread the word! Also note there is some talk about seeing the Dark Night at the Senator after the ride.
Is it easy/safe to park anywhere nearby? Or safe to bike to and from a light rail stop before & after the ride?
I'm car free so I'm not the best person to ask about parking, I would guess that parking on Charles or St Paul would be safe as well as around the Washington Monument (Charles & Monument.) For the Light Rail Center St Station looks good, ride along Center St to Cathedral and then down to Mulberry I fairly certain some one can escort you back to the Light Rail after the ride.
Thanks to all who put this together. What a great time! I've been raving about it to my friends and they want to go on the next one! Keep on riding!!
