Nightrider London 2015

From to

Nightrider is a truly unique way to explore the capital, join cyclists as they pedal 100km around London in the dead of night, taking in over 50 of London’s famous landmarks.

While London sleeps, 4500 cyclists will raise more than £2 million in one night for hundreds of charities. The full route will take in a whole host iconic London sights, including: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Royal Opera House and the London Eye. Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night and a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish line.

You can either start at Lee Valley VeloPark in the north or Crystal Palace in the south, before riding through the moonlit city on your fundraising journey.

New for Nightrider 2015 is a film and music theme. This exciting twist will let you bring your favourite film and music moments to life at iconic landmarks, including 221b Baker Street (Sherlock Holmes), Abbey Road (The Beatles), The Globe Pub in Borough Market (Bridget Jones), 22 Heddon Street (David Bowie) and many more!  

Past Nightriders include HRH Princess Eugenie, Downton Abbey actor Jim Carter, adventurer Ben Fogle and new Game of Thrones actor Enzo Cilenti.

Now in its sixth year, the annual Nightrider challenge has raised £6 million for charity already.

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Chiwetel Ejiofor takes the title role.

Contains strong language and adult themes
