LONDON EVENTS – Nightrider™ London Charity Ride – NEW Film & Music Theme Revealed
Nightrider™ – the 100km/60km charity night ride through London – returns on 6 / 7 June 2015 with a brand new film and music theme. While the capital sleeps, several thousand Nightriders will cycle through the night past London’s major sights. Now in its sixth year, the annual Nightrider™ challenge has raised £6 million for hundreds of charities including GOSH, Cancer Research UK and Stroke Association.
The action-packed cycle route – which already takes in over 50 of London’s iconic landmarks – will feature locations including 221b Baker Street (Sherlock Holmes), Abbey Road (The Beatles), The Globe Pub in Borough Market and Bedale Street (Bridget Jones’s Diary). During the ride there will be a music and movie quiz plus prizes for the best film and music themed fancy dress costume and #SelfieStar story that captures the event.
Cyclists will set off from Lee Valley VeloPark or Crystal Palace following a circular itinerary through the city. The route will be clearly sign-posted with regular break stops so that Nightriders can cycle at their own pace. Full support and back up will be provided throughout the night and a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish line.
Nightrider™ is organised by leading charity tour operator Classic Tours. Chairman, Sir Erich Reich says: “Nightrider™ is a fantastic way to see the sights of London in a different light whilst helping to raise a huge amount for charity. London is an unrivalled creative hub for the arts and the 2015 ride has the added appeal a film and music twist to our already unique ride”.
There are 4500 Nightrider™ places available. Every cyclist has their own motivation for taking part. Many people have a connection to the charity they are supporting. Classic Tours can provide personal interest stories for the media. Free places are available to journalists.
Nightriders pay a registration fee of £39 and then either raise a minimum sponsorship target of £175* approx. (*exact amount set by each charity) or pay £99 and raise as much sponsorship as possible for their chosen charity. For more information and to sign up online visit http://www.nightrider.org.uk
