Ride your bike or walk, with no stress of motor vehicles
Light the City is an event that is part of the Sydney Rides Festival, which will be on from 6th to 27th October 2018. Light the City is actually the closing event of this festival.

The festival is hosted by SydneyCycleways and the City of Sydney and will be at The Domain.

Featured in the Sydney Rides Festival are such things as:

Light the City
This is an event inspired by Halloween and is carried out on two wheels! It will be a night of light and entertainment which will sure to be fascinating and intriguing. The lights will be turned on at 6.00 pm and it will be a fun family evening!

Have ever thought of cycling down to Mrs Macquaries Road without the usual four-wheel vehicles (known as cars!)? Now is your opportunity to do just that as this two-wheeler twilight event is returning. You will be able to ride your bike and explore Mrs Macquarie's Point with no other traffic! Mrs Macquaries Road will be closed to cars for this one night only. It will just be open for people to walk or ride past the lights and the special effects put on for the night.

There will be a 2.5 km ring-way, which will have a rainbow path, a tunnel of light, a field of beams and more! There will be a special outdoor lounge area where you will be able to join in the following at the Harbour:

Halloween silent disco
At this disco, you take a set of headphones and dance by the water. But there is no music as this is a "silent" disco - only you can hear your music.

Roller racing
Roller racing will also be here and why not see if you can beat a friend or stranger and try for the fastest time.

Instagram printer
You can tag your photos with #sydneyrides or #lightthecity and they will show on the big screen or alternatively, you can print these photos.

Glitter ball arena
In this area, you will find a jump rope, soul train and limbo dancing.
