The third annual UBC Bike Rave starts at 8 PM in front of Koerner Library this coming Friday. As always, this glowtastic activity will provide complimentary glow sticks and rave gear for bikers, skateboarders and unicyclists alike! Show up with a wheeled contraption, and you’re in the clear. Ride down East Mall with dance party break stops along the way… UBC EDM Club will make sure to bring the drop.

BONUS: UBC Bike Rave has also announced it will be giving away a free ticket to AMS’s sold-out Block Party to whoever owns the best-looking wheels. Definitely worth a Google search on the world of L.E.D. accessories right about now?
