The October ride falls on Halloween this year!
Riders are encouraged (although not required) to dress up in costume and dress up your bikes, too. Please use bright/reflective colours if possible, and lights, too, since it gets dark this time of year.
On the last Friday of every month, cyclists around the world gather to ride the streets together to assert the rights of non-automotive traffic to use the streets.
In Calgary, we meet at Eau Claire (near the Olympic arches and the YMCA). The rides usually leave no later than 6pm, and takes a generally random route (determined by the riders) through downtown and sometimes into other inner-city communities.
The rides have been going on since the mid-90’s.
