Hamilton's Glowriders

Hamilton's Glowriders are changing the face of sustainable transportation here in town, and they look good doing it. 

Tyler Roach joined us on MorningFile to chat all about how the glowrides started and how they are spreading joy all around Hamilton with monthly meet ups. Dozens of Hamilton glowriders get together with decked out bicycles and Sobi bikes with lights and gadgets. Together they bike around the central and west end on an extensive tour of some of the city's best spots! They finish their night off on Augusta street for drinks and socializing. 

This group is just one of the many community groups growing our city into an incredibly welcoming and sustainable place.

Catch them this Saturday at 8pm in Durand Park for their final ride of the season. This will be a ridiculous night out riding through Hamilton's beautiful city with a gang of glowing cyclists, a chorus of bells, and party bangers blasting. Finish off by grabbing tickets to the event happening at Augusta in support of Sobi's Everyone Rides program.

The Everyone Rides program helps to provide SoBi Hamilton memberships to those with financial barriers. Tickets are only $8 and that includes your first beer and provides funds to support the cause. There will also be other drink specials. Tickets are limited, please grab them here.
