Bike the Night Takes a Tour through Kits this Friday

Bike bedazzling is encouraged!

Biking during the day is fun enough, but biking during the night has an added exciting element to it that makes it all the more fun. There are less cars, less crowds, and you feel like you’re alone in the city. It makes for a magical memory. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself!

This Friday, September 16 HUB Cycling has organised a Bike the Night event from 6pm – 9:30pm to help others experience nocturnal Vancouver at its best – by bike. This official event replaces the now defunct Bike Rave that exploded in popularity over the last few years. (Although a few unofficial versions have popped up in its place).

This is a ride for the whole family from little ones to seniors. The car-free and easy route make this an ideal evening activity and you will support HUB’s work to make biking better while having an awesome time.
