After seventeen years at the Major Taylor Velodrome, the N.I.T.E. Ride event is... MOVING!  The 18th Annual N.I.T.E. Ride event will be held at IUPUI (Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis), at Carroll Stadium, on West New York Street in downtown Indianapolis, on Saturday, June 25, 2011.  

So why move from the only home this event has ever had?   In a word... PARKING.  We have struggled the past three years to find enough space for participants to park.  With growth in participation being more than 20% over the past two years, and similar growth expected going forward, we had no choice but to look for a venue with greater capacity.

While it is sad to be leaving the great Velodrome bicycle racing facility, it is also exciting to be able to move the N. I. T. E. Ride to a site which offers so much opportunity for continued growth and development.  Consider that from the new site, you'll be able to see the beautiful IUPUI campus, enjoy the Indy Greenways and the new Cultural Trail, visit museums, watch an IMAX movie, stroll the Indianapolis Zoo, take in a Indianapolis Indians AAA Baseball game, shop Circle Center Mall, and more!  

Also, we now have an Event Hotel - the four-star, four-diamond - University Place Hotel. Special N.I.T.E. Ride participant rate is $99 per night plus tax. Call 800-627-2700 to reserve your room and ask for the N.I.T.E. Ride rate.

Within the Hotel, just a short walk (or ride!) from the event site, is the upscale Chancellors Restaurant and the Our Den Sports Bar.  (N.I.T.E. Ride Food Specials) We are grateful to all of the directors and management of IUPUI who have been so helpful to us in our effort to develop a transition plan for the new event site.
