Grab your bike and celebrate Sydney Rides Festival with a night of light, food and entertainment harbourside. Mrs Macquaries Road will close to cars from 6pm and will be open for people to walk or cycle past light installations and dreamy special effects.

Kids will delight in the magical rainbow path, tunnel of light, a field of beams and other installations along the 2.5km loop.

You can get your groove on at the Glitter Ball Arena, dance like it's 999 at the silent disco or channel your inner 80's child and challenge your friends on the roller racing stage. If that all sounds too hectic just kick back and chill out with a bite to eat from the food trucks.

If you love to show off, pimp your bike with bling for this wonderful night of bikes, lights and music.

Bike hire will also be available on the night.

Light the City is a family-friendly event.
