Join us on Saturday November 4th** for the most spectacular event of the year. It’s the 6th Annual Big Ass Night Ride, presented by the Hamilton Burlington Mountain Biking Association.

The entry fee this year is $25 which gets you a snazzy event t-shirt, a beer, and a post-ride snack. In addition, proceeds from the event will be donated to the Hamilton Conservation Foundation on behalf of mountain bikers supporting trails in the Dundas Valley! Win – Win!

Costumes are not mandatory but without one you will not be eligible for any prizes from our amazing sponsors!

Location: Grupetto – 64 Hatt Street, Dundas, Ontario L9H 7T6

This year, we are looking out for the best Mods & Rockers costumes! Yes, that’s right, we are doing a theme! Dress up in your best Mod or Rocker outfit and you may win a prize from one of our amazing sponsors.

THEME: MODS & ROCKERS! If you’re not sure what mods or rockers are, check out this Wikipedia page and this Google image search.

Proper trail lights and helmets are mandatory. You should also have a working mountain bike or equivalent (aka. Fat Bike, Cross bike). Please make sure that your bike is in good working order. This is a relaxed group ride – not a race. Thus, we will be riding at a moderate pace. That said, there are some hills to climb, so some fitness is required. There will be several stops along the route to gather everyone and see all the lights together.

There is plenty of municipal parking down Hatt street and we will have a bike valet setup so that you can leave your bike and enjoy the festivities.
