The Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride will take place with 3-mile and 8-mile rides through the Northside of Richmond and Henrico on August 5.

Both events will kick off at Sports Backers Stadium on Ashe Boulevard next to the Diamond in Richmond. The 3-mile ride, which will begin at 8 p.m., will descend the boulevard, Brookland Parkway and Hermitage Road, then return to Bellevue Avenue.

The 8-mile ride will begin at 8:15 p.m. and travel along the Boulevard, Brookland Parkway, Hermitage Road and Lakeside Avenue to the Lakeside Volunteer Rescue Squad, then back along Lakeside Avenue past Bryan Park and back to the stadium along Hermitage / Blvd. .

Road closures will be in place from 7 p.m. and will continue until 10:30 p.m. at the latest.

Commuters should not attempt to cross Hermitage Road at Laburnum Avenue.

From the west side of Hermitage, commuters should use 195 South or Westwood Avenue. From the east side of Hermitage, they must use Brook Road to go around the course.

Roads will be open south of Overbook Drive and north of Hilliard Road.

The event will take place rain or shine. Registration options are still available online.

The course will include lights, party stops and more. There will also be pre- and post-disembarkation parties and a family area at the stadium.

Our cover is free – but we need your help to provide it

You may notice that you did not have to pay to read this article. This is because we have never set up a paywall in our 21 years of existence. We believe that access to reliable and fair local media coverage is a basic human right, and we are committed to keeping all of our coverage free for everyone to consume.

This access is important because it helps readers connect with their community, helps them learn more about what’s going on around them (good and bad), fosters community conversations, and prompts meaningful action. Over 70,000 people read our coverage each month, and we believe our community is better off for it.

But as a small business, simply giving our “product” to everyone for free is not a sustainable business model. That’s why every voluntary contribution we receive, no matter how big or small, is critically important.

We know that not everyone can or wants to financially support our work. But if you can do it, we need you. Invest in our trusted local journalism today so thousands more in our community can benefit.
