Registration for the Nightrider event in 2013 has just opened and I have signed up to participate in it with my partner in crime, iCrazyBee.
The Nightrider is a charity bike ride with a difference. The difference is 100km through the night, taking in some of London's iconic landmarks. These include: Tower Bridge; a deserted City of London; Canary Wharf; London Zoo; Piccadilly Circus; British Museum; London Eye; Houses of Parliament; Trafalgar Square and many more. It takes place on the night/morning of 8th - 9th June 2013 and iCrazyBee and I will be starting and finishing at Alexandra Palace.
I will have to get in some training for this and the Brompton rides I am going on should go part way to fulfilling this. It will be great to see London after hours as it were and have the chance to take lots of pictures of a City devoid of most of it inhabitants. (Assuming it doesn't rain that is).
Riding with my riding partner iCrazyBee will be great fun. We have also done similar when we took part in the London Velonotte. I am sure that we will keep each other amused and motivated and a competitive edge will also play its part I'm sure. I could not think of a better partner to go with and I am already excited and looking forward to it!
I will treat this as a major training event for the Brompton World Championships in 2013 but I am certain I will enjoy it in its own right. If I get a medal for crossing the finishing line I will be even happier!
