Valpo Night Ride

Experience the thrill of bicycling by starlight during the annual Valpo Night Ride. This 15-mile ride begins and ends at the Butterfield Family Pavilion and allows participants to ride in and around the City at a safe pace at night. Riders will enjoy a mid-ride snack at Valparaiso's Central Park Plaza and an after ride party at the pavilion. Police support and volunteers along the route make the Valpo Night Ride a must-do event!    

This summer, Northwest Indiana Clean Air is starting a bicycle safety and air quality education initiative, Project Lightning Bug. The project entails giving away 3,000 FREE bike lights and giving out air quality education material at public events such as night rides, safety villages, bike rodeos, and the like. Valpo Night Ride is honored to be a part of this program and a recipient of the free bike lights in 2019.
