Southampton Christmas Glow Ride

8th December 2019

16:00 - View all performance times

Guildhall Square , Above Bar Street

Join My Journey and local bike groups from Breeze, British Cycling, Sustrans and Cycling UK for an evening of Christmas cheer! Bling up your bike in your best seasonal decor for a bike ride with a difference, lighting up the parks and city centre streets as you go. There will be a Cycle Savvy Pitstop on hand offering free bike safety checkups, free giveaways from My Journey Southampton and Love My Ride offering prizes with its Spin the Wheel Game!

The ride will start from Guildhall Square in Southampton. Please book a ticket as we need to keep an eye on numbers for safety purposes.

There will be two separate parts to the event:

Try a Bike and Bikeagility Course - from 4pm onwards, alongside the Bike Dr and stalls, there will be a closed Bikeagility course for children and adults to practice their cycle skills, along with bikes to try out.

Park and On Road Cycle - Bike ride from 5 -7pm that takes in a bigger loop of the parks and the city centre, including on-road sections.

Important Info:

This is not a closed road event and riders will be cycling with regular traffic - any children that come on the ride should be older and more confident at cycling, or ride with their parents in trailers, child seats or cargo bikes.
The Bikeagility course will remain open until 7pm while the Glow Ride takes place. You do not need to have a ticket to access this.

This is a ticketed event, but you do not need to bring your printed ticket.

Remember that to legally ride on the roads, bikes need a front white light and rear red light.

Some of the ride will take place in parks, which will be a little darker, so do consider using a brighter front light to see by.

Due to the fact that the event takes place outside, it may be subject to cancellation in case of poor weather.

In Guildhall Square there are lots of cafes and restaurants where you can get access to toilets and drinks/food. There is also lots of bike parking available.
