Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride Will Light Up the Night

Moonlight Ride(Richmond, Virginia – August 1, 2018) – Virginia Credit Union is the multi-year title sponsor for the Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride to be held August 25 at Sports Backers Stadium.

The event features a fun, 8-mile nighttime ride on a closed course through Richmond’s Northside and Lakeside neighborhoods beginning at 8 p.m. There is also a 2-mile ride option for families with young children that begins at 7:30 p.m.

On the night of the event, Virginia Credit Union will have a tent with giveaways and hold a drawing to give away a free bike.

“The Moonlight Ride is a fun way to reach more people in our community, and let them know about our credit union,” said Todd Feldman, chief marketing officer for VACU. “The event brings together our organizations’ mutual goals of physical and financial health and confidence for the community.”

The Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride is different from any other biking event in the area.

“Riding at night is a fun and unique experience,” said Pete Woody, PR and Communications Manager for Sports Backers. “You’ll see children, adults, and groups in matching costumes. People really get into it. Some go all out and decorate their bikes with lights and crazy outfits. It ends with a street-party celebration back at Sports Backers Stadium.”

The Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride supports Bike Walk RVA, an advocacy program that is working to make the Richmond region more bike- and pedestrian-friendly.

A financial cooperative serving more than 265,000 members, Virginia Credit Union offers a variety of affordable banking services, loans, mortgages, and free financial education resources, with a focus on helping people be more confident with their finances.
