Nightrider™ is a thrilling 100km moonlit ride. While the capital sleeps, 3000 Nightriders will raise £1 million in one night – 9th/10th June 2012.
The route takes in London’s most iconic sights: Tower Bridge, a deserted City of London, Canary Wharf, Hampstead Heath, London Zoo, Piccadilly Circus, British Museum, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and more...
The circular itinerary is clearly sign-posted so you can cycle at your own pace. Full support and back up will be provided through the night.
Chris (40) from Bishop’s Stortford from took part in Nightrider™ 2011 on his Cyclescheme bike:
Why did you sign up for Nightrider™?
I did a London to Paris cycle ride for charity and enjoyed it so much I wanted to do something else. Nightrider™ really appealed as I hadn’t tried night riding before.
What was it like to ride through London at night?
It was great being up close to so many fascinating parts of London. I loved riding through the city with not much traffic around.
What were the highlights?
Seeing London lit up from Alexandra Palace in the dead of night and riding across Waterloo Bridge just as dawn was breaking.
Any low points?
Disappointed we didn’t ride all the way round the Emirates Stadium!
How did you train for the event?
I rode my bike to work and did training rides from home at weekends.
Would you recommend it?
Absolutely – in fact I’m thinking of doing it next year with a group of friends.
