    I enjoyed the Blackpool one. I'd encourage anybody wavering to go along.
  • Newport Nocturne is amazing- I went to the last one, sadly can't make this years :(

    Crowds are about 3 deep in some places- fantastic atmosphere. I highly recommend going. Even non-cyclists will have a great time. :D
