Century Cycles is teaming up with NiteRider Technical Lighting Systems to offer local bicyclists the chance to try the company’s innovative, high-powered lights on a Century Cycles Night Ride on the Towpath Trail on Saturday, July 23.
The NiteRider bicycle light display will open at 6 p.m. in the parking lot of the Century Cycles bicycle store in Peninsula, Ohio (1621 Main Street, on Route 303 between Route 8 and I-271, next to the Winking Lizard Tavern). The free Night Ride starts in the same parking lot at 8 p.m.
NiteRider will have an assortment of its most popular bike lights available for Northeast Ohio bicyclists to demo on the two-hour Night Ride. Those interested in using a NiteRider demo light must provide a driver’s license and credit card as collateral, and all demo lights are on a first-come, first-served basis.
NiteRider’s rolling showroom, which crisscrosses the country attending cycling events and providing technical race support, will be at the Night Ride with the complete line of NiteRider bicycle lighting systems on display. In addition to the product demo, a NiteRider representative will be on hand to answer questions, distribute catalogs and give away a NiteRider MiNewt Mini-USB bicycle light (MSRP: $100) by random drawing to one lucky Century Cycles Night Ride participant.
“We are thrilled to have NiteRider back for the third year in a row,” said Scott Cowan, owner of Century Cycles. “The NiteRider Night Ride is always one of our most popular of the year and we’re thrilled to host their only Northeast Ohio appearance.”
