Get the year off right by riding in the first hour of the New Year on this annual ride! The ride leaves promptly at 12:30am.

Ride on low traffic residential streets. Lights (front and rear) mandatory. Ride will be approximately 6 miles long and take around 30 minutes. The start location is the Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery (Corner Brewery) so people can warm up inside before the ride starts (and take in their free New Years party along with a bonfire in the outdoor beer garden) and have a post-ride libation (the Brewery is open to 2am).

PLEASE NOTE: Ride cancelled if Winter Weather Advisory/Watch, or temperatures below 15 degrees, at midnight.

PS – Many people hear of this ride and think “that’s crazy, with all the drunks out on the road!!!” In past years, riders of this even have observed little if any car traffic during the ride and what traffic there is, you can see coming a long way out.
