Presented by MEC, the fourth annual event is the province’s largest of its kind, drawing more than 5,000 riders on an epic 10-kilometre journey through open city streets. The party starts and ends at Sunset Beach, and the Burrard Street Bridge will also be closed for the ride.

The event will offer music, food trucks, live entertainment and the Vancouver International Airport will be giving away thousands of MEC rechargeable lights and other decorations. Riders are also encouraged to rock glowing enhancements on their bodies and bikes such as lights, reflectors, and stickers, as the organizers hope to make the parade a luminous affair.

The pre-party begins at 6 p.m. at Sunset Beach where participants can enjoy tunes, games, food trucks, ping pong and giveaways. Stretch Vancouver will be offering a “Yoga for Cyclists” session. The ride starts at 7:45 p.m. for families, kids, slower riders, and other riders will start at 8 p.m.
