See the city from a saddle for great cause
NEXT month, hundreds of cyclists will spend a Saturday night riding around Liverpool’s famous landmarks to raise money for loads of great causes.
Liverpool Nightrider is a fun and social ride, so there’s no timing or racing involved.
It’s just about having a good time, soaking up the atmosphere and supporting each other.
We have several places up for grabs in this year’s Liverpool Nightrider, which takes place on July 14-15 – and we’d love you to join our team.
There are three choices for the ride: the first is a 50km loop which starts with a ride through the Mersey Tunnel (which will be closed to other traffic) over to the Wirral Peninsula. This will include highlights such as the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, West Kirby and Port Sunlight, plus there are spectacular views back over the city centre.
The second loop is also 50km and takes in some world-famous landmarks: Liverpool’s historic waterfront, Albert Dock, ECHO Arena, Cavern Club, Empire Theatre, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Knotty Ash, Anfield Stadium and Goodison Park.
Finally, for the more experienced cyclists, you could choose to ride both routes in one incredible 100km ride!
Nightrider is organised by leading charity challenge company, Classic Challenge, who have been organising challenge events for 25 years.
The route will be fully sign-posted and there will be full support, back-up and regular break stops throughout the night, along with a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.
Hospice fundraiser, Laura Smith, said: “It will be an amazing atmosphere with hundreds of cyclists riding together, all raising funds for some fantastic charities.
“If you enjoy cycling and are looking for a different and enjoyable challenge, then this is for you!
“Why not get together with your friends or colleagues and join the St Joseph’s Hospice Liverpool Nightrider team with one of our limited charity places?
“We’ll also give you lots of advice and support to help you with your fundraising.”
