Pedaling in the moonlight

At midnight on 9/10 June 2012 up to 3,000 lycra clad cyclists will be taking to the streets of London for a 100km moonlit ride past London’s major landmarks.

Cyclists will follow a circular route which passes as many famous sites as the organisers could squeeze into the 100km. The eager Nightriders will be provided with support and backup throughout the night, including refreshments at regular break spots and a breakfast waiting at the finish line.

It is hoped that while the capital sleeps, £1 million will be raised in one night.

One cyclist already signed up is Sarah Beedle who is raising money for Leonard Cheshire Disability. Her husband is a resident at the Leonard Cheshire home in Sutton Coldfield.

Old Dears with Gears – four friends raising money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer have also signed up to the midnight cycle.
There’s less than a month to go to sign up – either by yourself, with a friend or in a team. For full details and to sign up online click here.

    My boyfriend and I will be doing the Nightrider 2012 in aid of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity. We’re both looking forward to it and wishing everyone taking part the very best!

    http://www.guysandstthomas.nhs.uk/about/charity/charityhome.aspx
    Guy’s and St Thomas’ is one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK, as well as one of the oldest, having founded circa 1100 AD. Their areas of specialisation include cancer, cardiovascular diseases, kidney & urology, sexual health and dermatology.
    It is also the home to Evelina Children’s Hospital, which provides a wide range of community services in the borough of Lambeth and Southwark for children, older people and those with learning disabilities.
    Support Guy’s and St Thomas’
    – Because nearly 100,000 children are treated every year at the Evelina Children’s Hospital.
    – Because their research into haemophilia could significantly improve treatment within five years.
    – Because they pioneered the use of robotic surgery.
    – Because together we can… make London healthier.
