Light Bike Rave for anti-Nuit Blanche 2021

UPDATE 21sep2021: Going with both the Neon Riders at 7pm and Toronto Cruisers at 8pm. Details put into the revised post. UPDATE 20sep2021: We are in discussions with Toronto Cruisers and Neon Riders to join their planned Oct 2nd, 2021 Art Ride. Their plan is to meet at 8pm at Matt Cohen Park (Spadina Ave at Bloor St W) and ride until midnight. Wait for further updates.

So Nuit Blanche is cancelled for 2021, what is a body to do on what is the usually the greatest all-night art festival in Toronto? I say we take back the night. I am planning alternate Nuit Blanche programming (anti-Nuit Blanche) - the return of the light bike ride which has been running concurrently with Nuit Blanche. Bring back the light bikes for 2021!

On the traditional Nuit night of Saturday, October 2nd, 2021 everyone with light bicycles, or illuminated e-scooters,  join us for a couple hours riding around downtown Toronto. Just like they used to do with rave rides by Neon Riders or the monthly night rides by the Toronto Cruisers. Add massive lights, bring some music and be one of the better art installations that Nuit Blanche has ever seen.

Riders can now gather with Neon Riders at 7pm on Saturday, October 2nd in Nathan Phillips Square at Toronto City Hall - here is their Facebook post for the event. While riders social distance and check out the groovy lights on the bikes in the first hour, then head out to Matt Cohen Park for the 8pm meeting with the Toronto Cruisers - here is their Facebook post for the event.

Keep safe, social distance, wear masks and make sure your bike has headlights, taillights and a bell.
