See the city from a saddle for great cause

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

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.”
