With entertainment and rest stops along the way featuring local artists, games, food trucks and light shows, this exciting event is not to be missed!
The start festival will kick off at 9pm on Saturday 28th January and riders will get set to Ride the Night from 11pm until sunrise. You’ll see your city like never before, riding alongside thousands of others to raise awareness and funds to brighten the future of today’s youth.
Ride The Night 64km.
A five hour night-time journey around Melbourne with much better weather this year for the whole ride. What a fantastic way to see Melbourne!
A really good time with some great people – Tracy, Wendy, Ross and Cormac and a horde of other crazy folk.
