Nightrider Bristol is back for 2017! 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.

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 2017 route is undergoing an exciting revamp in partnership with Visit Bristol. Set off from a city centre location and follow two 50km loops through the city taking in major landmarks and hidden gems, including the vibrant Harbourside area and iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. NEW for 2017 – a 50km route option.

Is Nightrider for me?

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

  • This event is not a race and not timed and we encourage people to cycle responsibly.
  • Bristol Nightrider is hilly! This is the toughest Nightrider. 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.
