NIGHTRIDER™ LIVERPOOL 2019
Date: 13 / 14 July 2019
Distance: 50km or 100km.
Nightrider Liverpool is back for the 4th consecutive year in Liverpool and you can be a part of this
special cycle challenge! Taking place throughout the night, Nightrider is a charity ride which is all
about having fun, seeing the sights and taking on a personal challenge.
You can choose from a 50km or 100km route in and around the Wirral and Liverpool. Explore the
city’s top sights, latest attractions, famous landmarks and discover some lesser well-known
treasures. Whether you’re cycling on your own, with your friends, family or work colleagues, we
can promise you a different kind of Saturday night! This is not a timed ride and it’s not a sportive,
it is all about having a good time and cycling together. Enjoy the sights, take photos, support each
other and help us to raise funds.
This action-packed event includes all the city’s iconic landmarks and legendary musical heritage
sites. The first 50km loop starts with a ride through the Mersey Tunnel (which will be closed to
other traffic) over to the Wirral Peninsula. Highlights include the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, West
Kirby and Port Sunlight, plus there are spectacular views back over the city centre. Loop 2 takes in
some world-famous landmarks: Liverpool’s historic waterfront, Albert Dock, Echo Arena, Cavern
Club, Empire Theatre, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Knotty Ash, Anfield Stadium (Liverpool FC)
and Goodison Park (Everton FC). Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided
throughout the night, along with a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.

which will be busy with the public and vehicles.

Most people complete the 100km route in 6-8 hours. The maximum time permitted is 10
