Bike The Night is back! Guelph’s 2nd annual illuminated nighttime community ride is taking over Guelph streets on Friday, September 23rd @ 7PM!

Bike The Night welcomes riders of all ages and abilities who want to be part of a free, fun lit-up party on wheels and who share an interest in building safer, more pedestrian- and cycling-friendly streets. The organized ride follows signed-bike routes, multi-use paths, and bike lanes. Bike the Night starts in Exhibition Park, then takes us through Sunny Acres, Royal City Park, the Ward, and ends downtown at City Hall.

Would you like to be a volunteer marshal for the ride? Let us know!
