Nightrider Glasgow 2019 - 50km or 100km cycle

The iconic charity bike ride is returning to Glasgow for a second year and you can be a part of this special cycle challenge! Taking place throughout the night, Nightrider is an event that 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 Glasgow. 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 to help CHAS reach every family in Scotland who needs us.

The ride starts from a central location beside the River Clyde and is a route of two halves. The first section takes in the south side of Glasgow, whilst the second half is all about the west end and city centre. Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, along with a well-earned breakfast roll and medal at the finish.

Why Nightrider?

  • Enjoy cycling past the sights of Glasgow 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 - 50km or 100km
  • 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 Glasgow'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 or 100km. We therefore do not recommend this event for beginner riders.
