Our only night time event offers you a unique experience not to be missed. Cycling from midnight, through the night, you will take on the best of Lancashire’s sleepy lanes as you head towards the dazzling lights of the Blackpool illuminations, which will be switched on and ready to welcome you across the finish line. 

This event is a 52 mile on road bike ride with no closed roads. Participants must be 18 and above due to the nature of night time riding. All participants must wear a helmet and have working bike lights.

Finish Location: Blackpool Promenade, Comedy Carpet, Blackpool, FY1 1AP
