My name is Lee Ffrench and aside from organising the full moon ride I run a little bike shop here on the East Coast “Bikespeeds” and it was whilst reading about another ride in the US I thought it would be fun so get a few of my friends out for a night ride and picked the following full moon, which was October 2015.
I created a Facebook event and it all went viral and we had 80+ riders. It was amazing!
the following year we did a full moon in the summer, unfortunately an England match was on the same night, we couldn’t compete with football and we only had 30 riders and it was a bit of flop and not even dark!
so from 2017 it’s set in stone the full moon ride will be the October full moon annually!
