We’d love you to join the SHARK TRUST Nightrider Bristol team on one of our limited Charity Places.

Nightrider is returning to Bristol and you can be a part of this special cycling challenge! Taking place throughout the night, Nightrider is a charity ride which is all about having fun, seeing the sights and taking on a personal challenge.

You can choose from a 50km or 100km route in and around Bristol. Explore the city's top sights, latest attractions, famous landmarks and discover some lesser well-known treasures. Whether you’re cycling on your own, with your friends, family or work colleagues, we can promise you a different kind of Saturday night! This isn't a timed ride and it’s not a sportive. It's all about having a good time and cycling together. Enjoy the sights, take photos, support each other and help us to raise funds.

As the UK's first Cycling City, Bristol is one of Europe's most bike-friendly destinations and Nightrider provides a unique way to explore its well-known sights and attractions. The 2019 route will see the ride set off from a central location and follow two 50km loops through the city taking in major landmarks and hidden gems, including the vibrant harbour side area and iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. The hills of Bristol can’t be escaped, so be prepared for a hilly ride! Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, along with a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.


• Enjoy cycling past the many sights of Bristol in this unique charity bike ride at night.

• The route is fully sign-posted. You can cycle at your own pace and follow the signs. GPS route will also be released.

• Choice of routes – 100km or 50km.

• Amazing atmosphere with hundreds of cyclists riding together, raising funds.

• Great event to do with friends or work colleagues. Why not get a team together?

• Nightrider is organised by a leading charity challenge company Classic Challenge who have been organising challenge events for more than 25 years.


• If you’re looking for a different and enjoyable challenge then this is for you!

• You should be confident cycling alongside traffic. Some roads are busy even at night. The route is mainly on quieter roads, but it does take in some of Bristol's lively spots which will be busy with the public and vehicles.      

• This event isn't a race and isn't timed and we encourage people to cycle responsibly. Most people complete the 100km route in 6-8 hours. The maximum time permitted is 10 hours.

• You should be prepared to put in some training prior to the event - it's a challenge and you'll need to be able to cycle 50km /100km.

So if you LOVE sharks and enjoy cycling sign up and join the Shark Trust team! We'll be at the event, cheering you on. It's going to be a fantastic night and will help raise vital funds to support our work. Go on challenge yourself and #DoSomeFin.
