Night Ride on the Towpath Trail Costume Party

National Bike Your Park Day festivities continue into the evening on Sept. 24 with our FINAL Night Ride on the Towpath Trail of the 2016 season! We're making it another SPECIAL ride -- a Night Ride Costume Party! The ride is FREE as usual!

Your costume can be any theme you like -- bicycling, an early Halloween costume, or even beer-themed like our past costume rides. The person with the BEST costume (as voted by the crowd in attendance) will win a NiteRider Lumina 550 rechargeable bicycle headlight, a $109 value!
Night Ride Costume Party

We recommend that you arrive in Peninsula between 6:30 and 7:00pm so that you have plenty of time to find parking, get yourself and your bicycle ready, sign in, and get in on the costume contest. The voting will take place at 7:50pm. We start riding at 8:00pm sharp. The costume contest and the start of the ride takes place in the parking lot of our store at 1621 Main Street in Peninsula.

The ride is about 14 miles long. You must have your own bicycle, helmet, and headlight. For more information, including directions, parking information, preparation and safety tips, and photos from past rides, go to:
