I Light HFX Group Ride

September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a community bike ride around Halifax to raise awareness about being visible while cycling at night. Light up your bike and ride with us!

The purpose of the I Light HFX campaign is to raise awareness and create a sense of community visibility about cycling after dark. The campaign includes a community ride with well-lit bikes, free light giveaway stations, and raising funds for the Halifax Cycling Coalition.

The community ride is a fun way to encourage people of all ages and abilities to get creative with lighting up their bikes as bright as possible and riding together through our city. Prizes are given for the brightest bikes to encourage people to have fun with it! The ride also helps fund the Halifax Cycling Coalition’s work because there is a ticket price of $30/person (children and youth 17 and under ride for free but must be accompanied by an adult).

We will meet at the Cyclesmith parking lot (in the back past the NSLC entrance) to register and for some announcements before we head out for the ride. Social distancing will be required. Please stay 6ft apart from anyone who doesn’t live in the same household as you and follow posted signage at the event.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hosting an outdoor only event this year, and we will not be hosting an after-party. We will be monitoring provincial regulations and adhering to safety protocols during the event.


Event Schedule:

7:00 PM – Registration Begins

7:30 PM – Ride Begins

8:30 PM – Ride Ends


Please Note:

Many things have been uncertain lately due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. As of now, we feel safe and confident in our choice to host this event. If the situation changes, we may have to cancel. If we do cancel the event because of provincial regulations related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be issuing refunds for the $30 ticket price. Your ticket fee will be considered a donation to the Halifax Cycling Coalition and the funds will go towards our work. We appreciate your support and your understanding.
