Nightrider 2020 – London

Join #TeamSF on 6-7 June 2020 when, once again, Nightrider will take over London! Two routes will be available – a 100km and a 50km ride. Both are circular and start and finish at the iconic Lee Valley VeloPark. Take Part in a night out to remember. So #GetOnYourBike!

We have 5 charity places available for booking.

Our early bird pricing of £29 ended on 31 December 2019; however you can still book at a reduced fee of £35 – if you sign up before 31 March 2020. Minimum sponsorship required for you to raise is £175.  Registration fees will cost £45 after the 31st of March 2020, so register now and take advantage of this discounted registration fee.

Choose from a 50km or 100km route and exploring the top sights, latest attractions, famous landmarks and discover some lesser well-known treasures of London. 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. We support young people and adults born with a heart condition (congenital heart defect or CHD) by providing services aimed at improving wellbeing, tackling discrimination and raising awareness.

Why Nightrider?

• Enjoy cycling past the many sights in this unique charity bike ride at night.
• The routes are fully sign-posted. You can cycle at your own pace and follow the signs. GPS route will also be released.
• Choice of routes – 100km, 50km
• Amazing atmosphere with hundreds of cyclists riding together, raising funds.
• Great event to do with friends or work colleagues. Why not get a team together?
• Nightrider is organised by leading charity challenge company Classic Challenge who have been organising challenge events for more than twenty-five years.

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 traffic. Some roads are busy even at night.
The route is mainly on quieter roads, but it does take in some lively spots 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 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 50km /100km. We therefore do not recommend this event for beginner riders.

Sound like the event for you? We’d love you to JOIN the Somerville Foundation Nightrider team on one of our limited Charity Places.
