Full Moon Riders 2019

APR 20 - MAY 18 - JUNE 17 - JULY 16 - AUG 15 - SEPT 13 - OCT 13

Since 2015, DSA has hosted a free, casual bike riding event series – Full Moon Riders – in partnership with community bike groups and bike enthusiasts.

Meet new people, enjoy the downtown area, and be active!

How It Works

Each ride begins at Janet Leigh Plaza (222 N. El Dorado St.) in Downtown Stockton, and ends at a downtown venue or restaurant, where bike racks are monitored, so riders can enjoy themselves worry-free.

Every rider must sign a liability waiver for themselves and any minors accompanying them. All minors must wear helmets.

Registration begins at 5:15 PM; ride starts at 6:00 PM; and event ends at 8:15 PM (unless there is a special event, like a bike-in movie or concert!).  

Keep up with ride routes and updates: Full Moon Riders Facebook Event Page

At each ride, there is a free giveaway item for the first 100 riders!

Join us for the 5th season in 2019!

Support locally-operating non-profits

This year, for the first time ever, we are donating $1/rider to a selected Downtown non-profit, so encourage your friends to participate!
