IUPUI Regatta Week Twilight Bike Ride

       
Cultural TrailTake a ride on the Cultural Trail the night before the Regatta with IUPUI students and alumni! This path will take you through downtown and around Monument Circle before dropping you off at Creation Café in the Admiral Spruance Basin – the start/finish line for the Regatta. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of downtown, and at the end you can see the calm before the storm of the Regatta! For a perfect way to end Regatta Week and get ready for the races, stop at Creation Café for food and drinks.
 
Registration required as there is a cap of 250 cyclists. Safety gear is required.

 

 
WHEN:
Date: 9/21/2012
Time: 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Please arrive by 6:30 p.m. to give yourself time to check in and fill out a waiver. We will be releasing participants in waves of about 25-50 people at a time to avoid congestion along the trail. The first will leave at 7 p.m., and there will be a 5 to 10-minute break between waves. The final wave will leave around 7:30-40 p.m.
 
REGISTRATION:
Registration for the ride will be $5, and this will include a Regatta-themed gift. Priority registration will close on September 14 at midnight. Walk up registrations are welcome as long as open spots remain. There is a limit of 250 persons for this year’s Twilight Ride. Sorry, but there are no refunds after registration.
 
SAFETY:
Before you come to campus for the ride, please review these bicycle safety tips. Please check the pressure in your tires and make sure there are no loose screws or bolts on your bike. A helmet will be required for all participants, and reflectors or a light are highly recommended. If you plan on getting dinner afterward, please remember to bring a bike lock with you. While you are on the trail, keep in mind that the rules of the road still apply at all intersections. Try to stay in groups while riding; it is much easier for a driver to see 10 bike riders than a single rider. Have fun, be safe and use common sense!
