Moonrise Bike Ride is Ottawa Bike and Trail's premier bikepacking and music adventure on the Flint HIlls Trail.
Moonrise Main Event
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 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.
Optional Moonrise Campfire (NEW FOR 2022)
For those of you that can’t get enough Moonrise Bike Ride, we’re planning a NEW Friday night campout option 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.
