Nightrider Liverpool is back for the 5th consecutive year in Liverpool and you can be a part of this special cycle 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.

Could you help #TeaIronOverload raise £250 or more for our vital awareness-raising work? The sooner you register, the cheaper the places!


You can choose from a 50km or 100km route in and around the Wirral and Liverpool.

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 is not a timed ride and it’s not a sportive, it is all about having a good time and cycling together. Enjoy the sights, take photos, support each other and help us to raise funds.

This action-packed event includes all the city's iconic landmarks and legendary musical heritage sites. The first 50km loop starts with a ride through the Mersey Tunnel (which will be closed to other traffic) over 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 some 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). Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, along with well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.

Why Nightrider?

• Enjoy cycling past the many sights of Liverpool and the Wirral 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, 50km Wirral loop or 50km Liverpool city loop.
• 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 leading charity challenge company Classic Challenge who have been organising challenge events for more than twenty-five years.

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. Some roads are busy even at night. The route is mainly on quieter roads, but it does take in some of Liverpool’s lively spots which will be busy with the public and vehicles.
• This event is not a race and is not 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 is a challenge and you will need to be able to cycle 50km /100km. We therefore do not recommend this event for beginner riders.
