Ever fancied tricking out that bike with lights? And taking those two wheels for a spin downtown after dark? While dressed in costume?
HUB Cycling’s signature night bike ride is the perfect opportunity to do these things while doing your bit for the planet.
Modelled after Montreal’s popular Tour la Nuit, Vancouver’s Bike the Night is back for its fourth year Saturday (September 7).
The cycling event begins with a party at Sunset Beach, with music, bike tune-ups, food trucks, games, and giveaways, starting at 6 p.m.
Ten kilometres of roadways, including the Burrard Street Bridge, will be cleared of cars. Families and slow riders roll out at 7:45 p.m.; others follow at 8 p.m.
The ride ends where it started, at Sunset Beach.
Registered participants get a chance to win a $500 gift card from MEC. Tickets are $20. Youths aged 16 and under ride free. For details: bikethenight.ca.
