When: Friday, October 5, 8 – 11 p.m.
Grab your bike, friends, some blinking lights and reflective gear! We are going on a cross-town night ride. Would you like to be a part of something special? Nocturnal 9 is a groundbreaking event for our community. It is the first time that we’ve done a BIG night ride. (Check out this link to get an idea of the feel of a Nocturnal ride.)
The event is free. But we’d like to surprise a group of local individuals by handing them all the funds raised. That’s where you come in. We are asking that you’ll donate $10/biker. 100% of the donated money will be given away during the ride at the half-way point. It will be incredible!
You Can Win a Prize
The fun doesn’t stop with helping others. If you donate, you will automatically receive entries to be entered to win this incredible 11′ BIC Wing Air inflatable stand-up-paddleboard & a carbon fiber paddle! (Generously donated by Crouse Body Shop).
To encourage early registration, the earlier you sign up, the more entries you’ll receive. For example, if you register 5-weeks before the event, you’ll get five tickets in the drawing.

Event details and schedule
Friday, October 5, 8 p.m.
We will meet in the parking lot of Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center on the Grace College campus. A police escort will take our group through downtown Warsaw to a secret destination! At the secret destination, all the money collected from the event will be given away! This will be a casual pedal, riders of ANY skill level are welcome. We will have support vehicles to make minor repairs and/or haul bikes in need of repair. There will also be a tent on site at the MOCC to start your ride right, compliments of the Trailhouse in Winona Lake.
For the first 200 registrants, the Trailhouse is also giving away a free flashing bicycle light!
Please invite friends and family. Remember to wear bright reflective gear, deck your bike out with lots of flashing light and glowing fun stuff! Costumes are encouraged!
This is going to be fun.
The drawing will take place immediately after the ride and you must be present to win.
We are thankful for all of the supporters of this Nocturnal bike ride.
