Christchurch Winter Solstice Matariki Night Light Bike Ride

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Mon 21 Jun, 5:30pm – 6:15pm


Hagley Park North, Rolleston Ave, Christchurch


All Ages

Cycle Hagley Park on the longest night of the year with bright lights!

The theme this year is to support all new cyclists & families who are riding our new cycleways
Join us on our 10th annual Christchurch NZ Solstice Night Light bike ride!

The purpose is to brightly support safe & healthy and fun cycling for commuters, kids riding to school and for all recreational cyclists.

Meet inside the Park at the Armagh Street Mickle Gates from 5pm for a 5.30pm start.

This is a family-friendly event but organisers urge that you ride with your children as it is pretty dark after 5.30pm. And you must bring at least one bikelight - it gets dark on this ride!

Bling out your bike, helmet and person with as many lights as you can. Prizes for various categories including the brightest bike, of course!

Our bike light ride starts at the Hagley Park Mickle gates ( where Armagh st meets Park Terrace) and we ride counterclockwise around the park on the footpath or road - your choice. Afterwards, we will adjourn to the Pegasus Arms on Oxford Terrace and other local eateries for a beer or hot chocolate and discuss how to help make Christchurch a world-class safe cycling city!
