Nightrider 100km London charity ride

100km charity cycle ride through London at night

On Saturday 19 June 2010 up to 300 cyclists will embark on the Nightrider, a 100km charity cycle ride that takes place at night, with up to 300 cyclists riding to raise money for charity.

While the capital sleeps, it is hoped that over £25,000 will be raised for dozens of good causes.

Cyclists will set off at 11pm and follow a circular itinerary past over fifty of London’s most famous landmarks including: Tower Bridge, a deserted City of London, Canary Wharf, Hampstead Heath, London Zoo, Piccadilly Circus, British Museum, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Albert Hall and Battersea Power Station.  The ride starts and finishes at Crystal Palace.

This unique challenge been conceived and developed by charity tour operator Classic Tours. The route is entirely on roads for ease of access and quality of lighting. It will be clearly sign-posted so participants can cycle their own pace. Full support and back up will be provided by the organisers.

Sir Erich Reich, Managing Director of Classic Tours says: “Nightrider is the big new London charity event for 2010. It is an exciting and different way to explore the capital – at night and on bikes! We hope that it will inspire dozens of people to raise thousands of pounds for charities.”

A registration fee of £25 is required to sign up and the minimum sponsorship target of £175 is required. Or participants can pay £80 and raise as much sponsorship as possible for the charity of their choice.  Places are limited and are selling fast.
