NITE Ride celebrates 21 years

INDIANAPOLIS – Sponsored by the Central Indiana Bicycling Association Inc. (CIBA), the 21st annual NITE Ride event will be held at the Indiana University Purdue University-Indianapolis Carroll Stadium on West New York Street in downtown Indianapolis Saturday, June 28.

“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,” reports public relations coordinator Joe Hettle.

About 4,000 riders of all ages are expected to 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.

NITE Ride director Roger Stevens observes, “This is a great opportunity for family and friends to enjoy a casual nighttime ride through some of Indianapolis’ great neighborhoods and venues.” Although the official ride doesn’t start until 11 p.m., CIBA also sponsors free morning and dinner rides on 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 (www.cibaride.org) is one of the largest and most active bicycle clubs in the U.S., according to a news release. The Hilly Hundred, CIBA’s other event, was named “Best Overall Event” in 1999 and 2000 by League of American Bicyclists and Bicycling Magazine.

The 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.
