Share Your Bicycle Picture and Story to Win

Bicycle Garage Indy wants to go all out for the LITE UP YOUR BIKE contest for the 20th edition of the NITE Ride. We want you to be able to share you NITE RIDE LITES with all of your friends. (And all of ours; that is a lot of friends!). The contest will be run a bit differently this year - you'll need to submit your photo ahead of time (deadline is June 20). So trick out your ride, take a picture and submit it. (Submissions are closed.)

Service/Repair Area Access

If you need your bike checked for service/repairs, you will be allowed to bring your bike to Bicycle Garage Indy's tent for service and repair. If you have entered the LITE Up Your Bike Contest, you will be allowed into the tent area with your lit up bike for a display of bikes starting at 9:00 pm with awards for the contest winners drawn and distributed at 9:45 pm. Then contest entrants will be given the opportunity to start at the front of the line when the ride begins.
