Description

About HUB Cycling

HUB Cycling is a charitable non-profit organization, established to improve cycling conditions in Metro Vancouver. We strive to remove barriers to cycling and improve the quality of our communities, our health, the environment, and local economies. We make cycling better through education, action, and events.


About Bike the Night Presented by MEC

Bike the Night is BC’s largest night ride. Vancouver’s city streets will be opened so that thousands of riders can experience Vancouver’s most iconic roadways after dark. Participants can deck out their bikes in lights and spread good cycling vibes with over 5000 other riders of all ages on this 10 kilometre slow roll. Registration also includes entry to our pre-party with a DJ, free bike tune-ups by MEC mechanics, bike decorating, food trucks, a kids zone, and tons of awesome giveaways. All participants will be entered to win our grand prize! The pre-party and starting point will be at Concord Pacific Place, on the westside of Carral Street, and the ride will route through Downtown Vancouver! This is all taking place on Saturday, September 15th, with the pre-party starting at 6pm and the ride at 8pm.
