Ride in ‘NIGHTRIDER’ for Mencap Liverpool


15/16 JULY 2017


Nightrider Liverpool is back for 2017! The iconic charity night ride is the perfect backdrop for the best night out in Liverpool and the Wirral. It is a fun and quirky way to explore the Merseyside’s top sights, latest attractions and famous landmarks- and Mencap Liverpool have places to offer out to our supporters!!

This is a one-day charity ride with a difference…it’s at night! Nightrider is all about getting together with your friends, family or work colleagues and taking on a challenge together in a entertaining way. This is not a timed ride, it’s not a sportive, it’s all about having a good time together, seeing the sights and raising funds.

The action-packed event includes all the city’s iconic landmarks and legendary musical heritage. The first 50km loop is through the Mersey Tunnel, which will be closed to other traffic for the event, to the Wirral Peninsula. Highlights include the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, West Kirby and Port Sunlight, plus there are spectacular views back over the city centre. Loop 2 takes in more world-famous landmarks: Liverpool’s historic waterfront, Albert Dock, Echo Arena, Cavern Club, Empire Theatre, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Knotty Ash, Anfield Stadium (Liverpool FC) and Goodison Park (Everton FC). NEW for 2017 – a 50km route option. You choose to do either the Wirral loop or the Liverpool loop. Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, along with a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.

Is Nightrider for me?

  • If you’re looking for a different and enjoyable challenge then this is for you!
  • You should be confident in cycling alongside traffic as Liverpool’s roads are busy even at night. The route is mainly on quieter roads, however it does take in some of the busier spots which will be busy with the public and vehicles.
  • This event is not a race and not timed and we encourage people to cycle responsibly.
  • You should be prepared to put in some training prior to the event – it is a challenge and you will cycle 100km / 50km at night. This event is not suitable for beginners. Training guidelines will be provided.
