Thousands of St. Louis cyclists cruised the moonlit St. Louis streets Sunday for the 50th Moonlight Ramble. With the University of Missouri–St. Louis also celebrating 50 years in 2013, organizers of the annual ride teamed up with the university to celebrate their mutual anniversaries and rename the event the UMSL Jubilee Moonlight Ramble.

Hundreds of UMSL students, alumni and faculty and staff members rode the 10.5-mile and 18.5-mile routes along barricaded streets from Busch Stadium to the Gateway Arch, down Washington Avenue from Downtown to Midtown and through Lafayette Square. And many did so for free – one of the perks of UMSL’s affiliation this year.

The university’s campus photographer, August Jennewein, took in the scene sans bike, but with camera in tow. Visit UMSL’s Flickr page to view a set of Jennewein’s photos from the event.
