Join the fun at Canberra’s first twilight bike ride and glow party!
Help us light up Yerrabi Pond as we ride an easy 5 km loop around the lake, beginning at twilight and riding into the night and under the stars. Join us after the ride for a family 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, including performances by Canberra Prosperous Mountain Lion Dance and their glow-in-the-dark lions!
Say goodbye to winter and welcome daylight savings at this fun family adventure ride!
