The event creator says
The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.

In this case, the actual full moon happens at 1:37 PM CDT the next day, which means that the fullest moon is pretty much midway between a Friday night ride and a Saturday night ride -- but it's just a tad closer to a Friday night ride than a Saturday night ride, and so we ride on *Friday night*!

That's right, it's another weekend ride, so those who haven't been able to make the ride because of jobs ... we expect to see you this time!

So ... Friday night, August 28th, at 11:59 pm, we assemble at the James D. Pfluger Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge, and we will ride out at about 12:30 am.

The schedule for upcoming full moon rides can be found at http://cycling.frenzied.us/full-moon-rides.

As always, ride at your own risk, having lights on your bike at night is a good idea and it's always prudent to have at least enough equipment to change a flat.

Also -- set your calenders! The 33rd Annual Moonlight Cruze is next month!
