How would you like to cycle past all the landmarks of London in the moonlight? UKDS has teamed up with Nightrider for a 100km charity bike ride this summer and we have reserved places for you to take part.

You will cycle through Tower Bridge, a deserted City of London, Canary Wharf, London Zoo, Piccadilly Circus, British Museum, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and more.

The event takes place overnight from Saturday 8 to Sunday 9 June and the starting points are either Alexandra Palace in the north of London or Crystal Palace to the south.

UKDS Vice Chair Stuart Harrison, along with his wife Joanne, will be doing the ride from Crystal Palace. Here’s what he had to say:

“Joanne and I are looking forward to the event in two ways. It will be a personal challenge to complete the course and secondly, it will be a challenge to raise as much as possible for the UKDS Deaflympics Movement. “
