Since 2008, the annual Midnight Century bike ride has taken participants on a 100-mile ride down unpaved country roads, on a route that carves through the city, Spokane Valley, and the Palouse — all under the light of the moon. It’s self-proclaimed as unforgiving, unorganized, and not liable for any injuries suffered by its participants. The website includes a long list of recommended preparatory measures, and a sense of pride at the ride’s rugged, individualistic nature. This one’s no easy walk in the park — it’s a tough ride in the dark.
