NITE Ride celebrates 21 years

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s largest organized bicycle ride will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year on Saturday, June 22, 2013. Sponsored by the Central Indiana Bicycling Association, Inc. (CIBA), the 21st Annual NITE Ride event will be held at IUPUI’s Carroll Stadium, on West New York Street in downtown Indianapolis, on Saturday, June 28, 2013. This year, however, the venue has moved to the east side of the stadium where there is much more room than last year, which will allow NITE Riders to park their bicycles inside the venue.

Approximately 4,000 riders of all ages are expected to join bicyclists who will ride from IUPUI to Monument Circle, up to Butler University for a rest stop, continuing on through the Indianapolis Museum of Art and down the White River Parkway back to IUPUI. More than 60 Indianapolis police officers, along with 150 volunteers, will guide the bicyclists along the route.

“This is a great opportunity for family and friends to enjoy a casual nighttime ride through some of Indianapolis’ great neighborhoods and venues,” says NITE Ride Director Roger Stevens. Although the official ride doesn’t start until 11 p.m., CIBA also sponsors a morning ride and a dinner ride, free-of-charge the same day.

“There are many other activities that everyone can enjoy in addition to the ride, such as visiting museums, strolling the Indianapolis Zoo, watching an IMAX movie or enjoying a meal at one of the many downtown restaurants or bars,” adds Stevens. “For many, this is one of the best days of the summer.”

Online registration is available at www.niteride.org.

CIBA is one of the largest and most active bicycle clubs in the U.S. The Hilly Hundred (CIBA’s other event) was named “Best Overall Event” in 1999 and 2000 by League of American Bicyclists and Bicycling Magazine. For more information about CIBA, the N.I.T.E. Ride and the Hilly Hundred, visit CIBA’s website: www.cibaride.org or write CIBA Events, P.O. Box 55405, Indianapolis, IN 46205.

Central Indiana Bicycling Association’s mission is to provide opportunities for bicyclists of all ages and abilities to ride their bicycles on safe, friendly, and well-organized rides; to be informed of bicycle events and related activities; to volunteer in support of CIBA and other bicycle-related organizations; and to socialize with other bicyclists.
