Friday Night Lights, a bike ride through Windsor, that has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings in 2014, will have it’s first ride of the season on Friday, May 10.

The concept of the ride is quite simple. Imagine hundreds of colourfully lit bicycles rolling by, bells clacking, as they partake in a pub crawl on two wheels. The pack take up the entire street, sometimes stretching several city blocks at a time, as we visit 2 locations as stops.

So how will it work?

  2. If you didn’t register in advance, the cost to participate will be $5 cash at the door.
  3. When you check in, you will be given a wristband.
  4. The wristband will entitle you to specials or even enter special events. Each ride will be different!
