      On September 16, MEC presents HUB Cycling Bike the Night at various Vancouver venues.

      The event kicks off with a party at Concord Pacific Place at 6 p.m., highlights of which include live music, free body art, bike decorating and tuneups, giveaways, relay races, and other entertainment.

      At 8 p.m., participants can then take part in a 10-kilometre bike ride that begins at Concord Pacific Place and winds throughout Vancouver streets, including a car-free Burrard Bridge. 

      Of the event HUB Cycling acting executive director Laura Jane says that "rides like this are important because they provide a fun and inclusive opportunity to encourage people to get on their bikes, meet others and contribute to a happier, healthier and more connected community." 

      HUB Cycling is a registered charity that has been working for nearly 20 years to make biking better across Metro Vancouver. With this event, it hopes to remove barriers to cycling and improve our communities, our health, and the environment.

      Tickets for HUB Cycling Bike the Night are $16 and are available online. Youth aged 16 years and under can participate for free.
