The City of Round Rock's Parks and Recreation Department will hold the inaugural Night Ride Family Bike Ride from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Aug. 3, at Centennial Plaza in downtown Round Rock. Festivities begin at 7 p.m.

About the ride
The Night Rider Family Bike Ride is a non-competitive family bike ride and block party at night through Round Rock. Night Rider is a unique, exciting ride and party.

Early registration fee is $10 per rider. The fee is $15 on the day of the event. (Non-resident fees apply)

Glow-in-the-dark bike gear and flashing lights are encouraged. The first 400 Night Riders receive a drawstring bag and glow-in-the-dark gear! First 150 Night Riders will also receive a FREE event T-shirt!

Ride course
The ride will start and finish at the Centennial Plaza (located behind the Baca Center and the McConico Building) and tour around the City, all under the Texas stars. | Route Map (PDF)

Per State law, bike helmets, a front bicycle light and rear reflector or bicycle light are required.
