“We’re very excited to be celebrating cycling in such a unique way. Being fully permitted allows us to open the streets to riders of all ages who want to cycle in a fun and social environment.” says Tracy Wilkins, HUB Cycling’s Special Events Manager.
Bike the Night will kick off at 6pm with a pre-party featuring music, games, food and giveaways for registered participants. The easy 10 kilometre route will start at Concord Pacific Place and wind through Vancouver’s most iconic streets including a car-free Burrard Bridge. Over 5,000 people of all ages and abilities are expected to sign up for the ride and are encouraged to decorate their bikes with lights and come in costume.
“The combination of music, costumes, bikes, glowing lights, and thousands of people creates a very unique community experience,” says Wilkins.
