Roundabout Soldotna

A group of cyclists hit the roads throughout Soldotna’s roundabouts on Saturday night for a full moon bike ride.

Although the cloud cover hid the full moon, a group of nearly 20 bicyclists rode through Soldotna, starting at Soldotna Creek Park and hitting many of the city’s roundabouts along the way. The ride ended at Kenai River Brewing Company.

“The whole idea if for it to be short and slow and social,” said Jennifer Tabor, an organizer and participant.

Saturday’s ride was the first of many full moon bike rides.

“We’re going to do it every full moon,” Tabor said. “This is the first one so we’ll see how it goes.”

The next full moon is Dec. 3.
