The theme this year is to support all new cyclists and families who are riding our new cycleways.

Join us on our 10th annual Christchurch NZ Solstice Night Light bike ride.

The purpose is to brightly support safe, healthy and fun cycling for commuters, kids riding to school and for all recreational cyclists.

This is a family-friendly event but organisers urge that you ride with your children as it is pretty dark after 5.30pm.

Bling out your bike, helmet and person with as many lights as you can.

Prizes for various categories including the brightest bike, of course! 

Our bike ride starts at the Hagley Park Mickle gates (where Armagh Street meets Park Terrace). Meet inside the gates from 5pm for a 5.30pm start. We ride counter clockwise around the park on the footpath or road – your choice.

Afterwards we will adjourn to the Pegasus Arms on Oxford Terrace and other local eateries for a beer or hot chocolate and discuss how to help make Christchurch a world class safe cycling city.

Event will be held rain, snow, wind, hail or a nice warm evening.
