Pedal Power ACT - Canberra Glow Ride

Pedal Power ACT - Canberra Glow Ride

Canberra's first family twilight bike ride and glow party! Say goodbye to winter and welcome daylight savings at this fun family event.

Join us on Saturday 6 October for Canberra's first ever Glow Ride event!

It's fun, it's adventurous, and it'll glow in the dark!

The Glow Ride is Pedal Power's newest addition to the Canberra cycling calendar to be held on the last night before the start of daylight savings as a way to say goodbye to the long Canberra winter and welcome the Spring cycling season.

Glow Ride is a family-friendly community bike ride with a festive and adventurous flavour - we'll be starting at twilight and riding into the darkness and under the stars, lighting up the night with glow in the dark bikes!

This 5 km ride is on shared paths and is suitable for all ages. The ride will start and finish at Yerrabi Pond Park in Gungahlin, with an easy loop ride around the lake, followed by a family-friendly glow party at our event hub.

Wear your best glow-in-the-dark gear and dress up your bike with glowing colours and festive lights. There'll be spot prizes for the brightest bikes, glow face painting and family food and entertainment.

Glow Ride is proudly brought to the Canberra community with support from Gungahlin lawyers Snedden Hall and Gallop.

When: Saturday 6 October from 4.30 pm. Ride from 6.30 pm

Where: Yerrabi Pond Park, corner Nellie Hamilton Ave and Phyllis Ashton Circuit, Gungahlin.
