If you catch a firefly
and keep it in a jar
You may find
that you have lost
A tiny star.
If you let it go then,
back into the night,
You may see it
-Lillian Moore, Poet
The Full Moon will be out Tuesday, July 3rd and we are excited to announce another Full Moon Outing--one of a series of rides and picnics we will host this summer.
Be sure to wear light colors-- like white or yellow-- and, in honor of Fireflies, join us for a flight through the city to enjoy simple pleasures on a calm night. Though you should bring your own lights as well, we will pass out glow sticks so that everyone can shine like tiny stars and illuminate our path.
After meeting at the shop at 8pm, the moonlight will guide our brilliant swarm through the city. The ride will finish with a grand picnic and some musical surprises.
Please RSVP to our facebook invite and register here for the ride so that we can know how many people are coming. And, if you are willing to help set up the picnic or serve as a marshall along the ride route, kindly send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We had a great time last month at our Full Moon River Run Ride and Picnic. Here is a video recap:
