London Nightrider 2014 Started in 2010, London Nightrider is an annual event that takes riders past London’s iconic landmarks while raising funds for charity. It follows a 100km route planned by Classic Tours. This year the ride was held on 7th-8th June with over 4,000 riders taking part.

The London Nightrider 2014 has over 160 partner charities that participants can choose to raise money for.
 
The 100km route can start off at either Crystal Palace or Alexandra Palace. Both the routes take in breathtaking sites such as Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and Piccadilly Circus to name but a few.
 
Team Velosi (UK) consisted of six members. They started off at Crystal Palace at 11.30pm and completed the ride at 7.00am. They managed to raise a total of £1,200 for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
 
The NSPCC was established on 8 July 1884 and has since helped more than 10 million children in the UK. In the past fifteen years alone, the charity has launched the FULL STOP campaign, creating an online counselling service, dismantling more than 166 networks of sex offenders and raising massive public awareness.
 
The event was definitely an eye opener as participants were able to see the heart of London pulsating at night by bike.
 
What was surprising is how busy it remained. It is certainly a city that never sleeps. There were a few challenging hills on the route but we all enjoyed it, even if we had trouble sitting down for a few days afterwards.
 
With next year's dates set for 6th to 7th June 2015, Team Velosi (UK) is looking forward to participating in this event once again.
