Where is the N.I.T.E. Ride?
While the N.I.T.E. Ride has had many different homes over the years, our participants have told us they like having the event downtown. We’re excited to have the event in downtown Indianapolis at Eli Lilly. Located at 950 S Delaware (corner of Delaware and East Merrill Street.)
How do I get to the Eli Lilly?
Where should I park?
Parking options are listed on the NITE Ride Parking page. We also encourage participants to carpool or ride their bikes to the event.
Are lights and helmets required?
Do I need a confirmation number or letter?
No. Registration is by name, not by number. You will receive a confirmation email. But no letter will be mailed. Just provide your name at the pickup table to receive your T-shirt and registration packet.
How much does the N.I.T.E. Ride cost?
Visit our Registration Page for information on cost and to register. There is no mail-in registration. Everything is done on the Active.com link provided on the Registration Page.
How late can I register?
On-line registration, via phone or computer, will be open until 10:45 p.m. on July 8, 2023. Participants who register after June 12, 2023 will NOT receive a complimentary limited edition N.I.T.E. Ride t-shirt.
What happens if it rains?
The NITE Ride is a rain or shine event. Even if it's raining, the ride will continue. The only situation where the ride would cancel is in the event of severe weather imminently impacting any location along the NITE Ride Route that threatens the safety of our riders. All decisions are made prior to the start of the ride to avoid having severe weather strike while participants are on the ride.
I’m pre-registered. Can someone else
pick up my registration packet and T-shirt?
Yes. You may have someone else pick up your packet, but you will need to make sure they have a copy of your registration confirmation email.
I pre-registered via the website but didn’t
receive a Confirmation Letter.
Confirmation letters are not being sent. If you do not receive a confirmation email, contact the event director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
May I cancel my pre-registration?
We are not able to process cancellations. However, you may transfer your registration to another participant without notice to us. Simply have the other participant report to report to a check-in table and show your confirmation email. It’s possible, but not likely, that we will be able to accommodate T-shirt size changes in such cases.
I’ve already pre-registered but would
like to add to my order. Is this possible?
Apologies, but due to data management issues we are not able to adjust pre-registration information. A limited supply of all sizes of T-shirts and sweatshirts will be on sale at the event. We can also place an order for you and mail your purchase to your home after the event.
Are riders 18 or younger allowed to ride? Yes. For safety of all participants and to ensure compliance with Indiana Curfew Laws, participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian or custodian or by an adult permitted by the child’s parent, legal guardian or custodian. Registration for riders under 18 require consent by a parent or legal guardian.
Do I have to ride a particular type of bicycle?
I prefer riding my mountain bike.
Any type of bicycle, as long as it is safe working order, may be used. The only stipulations are you must use a front and rear light and wear a helmet.
