Manchester to Blackpool Night Ride


7 - 8 October 2017


From Manchester to Blackpool



One of the UK's most iconic cycling events is back for 2017. Cycle through the night aiming for a finish line under the Blackpool Illuminations - left on just for the occasion.

At midnight you’ll set off from the iconic Intu Trafford Centre and take on a 52 mile Lancashire route, heading for the glow of the Blackpool sea front, where the world famous illuminations will be switched on exclusively to welcome you across the finish line.

While others are tucked up in bed, you'll be putting your mental and physical endurance levels to the test on this unforgettable challenge. It'll be hard work but as you cycle up Blackpool Promenade, under the dazzling lights and cross the finish line in time to watch the sunrise over the sea, safe in the knowledge you've just completed a tough challenge in order to help save lives, it will all feel worth it.

You must be over the age of 18 in order to take part in this event.

All participants must have a working light on the front and back of your bike. This is the law and you will not be allowed to take part without them.

You must also wear a helmet in order to take part.

On the night registrations will be charged at a higher fee, so we strongly recommend signing up in advance in order to avoid disappointment.

Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event but it's the money you raise that powers our life saving research. We are therefore asking all participants at this year's event to try and raise at least £100.
