Creedence Clearwater Revival sang about it. A 1996 horror film was named after it. Urban Dictionary calls it "something bad in the foreseeable future." At one time or another, most everyone has heard about a bad moon rising. A six-hour bicycle endurance race around a four-mile track in pasture and timberland, all under the light of a silvery full moon, was appropriately called the "Bad Moon Rising" mountain bike race. The race was held from 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday in Berryville. It was a benefit ride for the Ozark Off Road Cyclists and drew 100 riders from across the area.
