Registration to join our team and hundreds of other cyclists for this year's Nightrider events have closed. 

Taking place in two cities this year Nightrider is a fantastic way to explore a city at night. You'll see the city in a totally new way and be rewarded with quiet streets and the first glimmers of daybreak as you complete your ride. This is a truly memorable event not to be missed.

Routes are fully signed allowing you to cycle at your own pace and GPS is also provided for those that want it. Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night and a well earned breakfast and medal will be waiting for you at the finish line.

Bristol 1-2 July 2017

Bristol is the UK's first cycling city and it's a great choice for a night ride. There is no escaping the Bristol hills, but it makes for a tough, fun challenge.

In 2017 there will be two distances available - a 100km and a 50km ride.

London 10-11 June 2017

A fantastic chance to ride through the UK's iconic capital city at night. There are two routes available - a 100km and a 50km ride. Both are circular and start and finish at the same place, Lee Valley VeloPark.

Is Nightrider for me?

  • If you're looking for a challenge with an amazing atmosphere with fellow cyclists then this is for you!
  • You should be confident in cycling on the road alongside traffic. The roads can be busy even at night, the route is mainly on quieter roads however the route takes in some city centre locations which remain busy all night.
  • The event is not a race and not timed. 
  • Cycling 100km at night is a challenge so you will need to train. This event is not suitable for beginners.

We have guaranteed places for Nightrider. All you have to do is pay a registration fee of £39 to secure your place and raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £175 for Sustrans. 

You'll receive:

  • a fundraising pack filled with ideas to help you reach your fundraising target
  • a Sustrans T-shirt and a Nightrider hi-vis vest.

If you raise over £250 you'll receive a Sustrans cycling jersey too.
