Nightrider 2018

Nightrider, the iconic charity night bike ride is the perfect backdrop for the best night out. It is a fun and quirky way to explore a city’s top sights, latest attractions and famous landmarks.

This is a one day charity ride with a difference...it’s at night!

This is not a timed ride and is all about having a good time together, seeing the sights and raising funds. Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, along with a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.

The ride starts from a central location and will take you past many of city’s most famous landmarks. The route is currently in development and will be released early 2018.

LONDON - 9/10 June 2018 

The ride starts from the iconic Lee Valley VeloPark with a 1 mile lap of the road circuit before

heading out towards north London, taking you past many of London’s most famous landmarks.

- You should be confident in cycling alongside traffic. Some roads are busy even at night.The routes are mainly on quieter roads, but do take in some lively spots, which will be busy with the public and vehicles.

- We encourage people to cycle responsibly.

- Most people complete the 100km route in 6-8 hours.

- 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 100km. We therefore do not recommend this event for beginner riders.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people - male and female - under 35 in the UK. Many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

We are the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our work. We need more people who share our aims to join us to strengthen our voice - together we can save young lives.
