Ride the Night

Ride through the night to help make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged youth.

If riding home late at night in the cool air is your fave, you're in luck come the Saturday, January 28. It's the chosen date for the Melbourne's Ride the Night event, where you can pedal away merrily until the cows come home (or at least you get tired). Choose a 42-kilometre or 64-kilometre route around Melbourne's landmarks, deck yourself out in heaps of bright and loud-coloured things, and off you go — it's a long ride, but there'll be a sunrise brekky waiting for you at the end.

You'll be riding to raise money and awareness for Youth Support & Advocacy Service, helping make futures of disadvantaged young people better. The ride officially starts at 11pm, but the Event Village in Albert Park will be buzzing with music and colour from 9pm. Not up to the ride that far past your bedtime? You can volunteer, too, and be in amongst the action without even working up a sweat.
