8th Annual Big Ass Night Ride
Oct 26 @ 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join us on Saturday October 26th for the most spectacular event of the year. We’re dressing up in costume, grabbing our bikes and trail lights, and we’re taking to the trails in the Dundas Valley for the 8th Annual Big Ass Night Ride!

We’re also partnering with our friends from the Don’t Get Lost Adventure Running team – they’re holding their first Big Ass Night Run!

It’s all for a good cause! Proceeds from the event will be donated in support of the Hamilton Conservation Authority and the Hamilton Conservation Foundation.

And the best part? You could win some amazing prizes from our partners! Register today and get started on that killer costume.

THE FINE PRINT

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 before the event. Costumes are not mandatory; however, you will not be eligible for any prizes from our amazing sponsors! There is no theme this year so let your creative juices go. Don’t forget to dress up your bike!

Also, 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. We have a no-drop policy.
