Glow Ride is back! Get ready for the brightest night of the year!
The event will take place on Saturday 26 October on Southsea seafront. Just like last year there will be an extended route and event village.
Be Bright, Be Seen! Get your 'glow on' and help us light up the night. Dress yourself and your bike with lights, hi-vis and other glow-in-the-dark accessories to make this the brightest event yet.
The Glow Ride event village will offer food, drink, music and cycling-related activities and advice. Before the ride starts you can have your bike checked over by our Bike Doctor team and chat with some of our local bike suppliers.
Starting on Clarence Esplanade, cyclists will ride the 3km traffic-free, circular route along the Esplanade, across Southsea Common, to Clarence Parade and the Ladies' Mile. Cyclists and spectators can enjoy music along the route.
Glow Ride is open to cyclists of all ages and abilities and is fully accessible for adapted bikes and child trailers.
The council's safer travel team can help you with cycling advice, help you enjoy quieter routes around the city, provide information about self-guided cycle tours or social rides, as well as guidance about safe cycling.
Places are limited so to ensure you get to take part in this year's Glow Ride and claim your free glow bag we recommend you book your place online, ahead of the event.
Registration is now open. Visit our registration page.
