THUNDER MOON RIDE | 7:00 PM | A&E COFFEE & TEA
Temperatures on the moon are extreme, ranging from boiling hot to freezing cold depending on where the sun is shining. There is no significant atmosphere on the moon, so it cannot trap heat or insulate the surface. That is pretty intense. Friday Night Rides are pretty intense too. Let’s ride on a BIG full moon night. If you were on the fence about riding with us, just search the #ManchesterCyclingSyndicate photos from the last couple years and change your mind. Every week we have a blast. We welcome riders of all sorts and go anywhere from 8 to 16 miles.
DJ DANCE NIGHT | 9:00 PM | WILD ROVER PUB
Stop on by for a fun night of DJ dancing at the Rover starting at 9pm and going til close. Drink specials all day.
