NIGHTRIDER™ LONDON 2019
Date: 8 / 9 June 2019
Distance: 50km or 100km
Nightrider is celebrating its 10th anniversary in London 2019, 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 around London. 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
The ride starts from the iconic Lee Valley VeloPark with a 1 mile lap of the road circuit before
heading out towards north London. Both routes are circular and will take you past many of
London’s most famous landmarks. Highlights include Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Tower Bridge,
Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the rare chance to
cycle along The Mall! Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the
night, along with a well-earned breakfast roll and medal at the finish.

Is Nightrider for me?
• If you’re looking for a different and enjoyable challenge then this is for you!
• You should be confident in cycling alongside London traffic as London’s roads are busy
even at night. The route is mainly on quieter roads, but it does take in some of London’s
lively spots such as Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square, which will be busy with the
public and vehicles.
• This event is not a race and is not timed and we encourage people to cycle responsibly.
Most people complete the 100km route in 6-8 hours. The maximum time permitted is 10
• You should be prepared to put in some training prior to the event – it is a challenge and you
will need to be able to cycle 50km or 100km. We therefore do not recommend this event
for beginner riders.
