Nightrider 2015 Launch [Video] | A Girl About Town
On Tuesday (4th Nov) I attended the 2015 launch of Nightrider London at the prestigious 5-Star Grange St Paul’s Hotel, next to ‘Knightrider Street’ (how weird). A host of well-known faces along with VIPs, the press, industry experts and over 50 charities attended the event which showcased the annual London charity night ride that raises £2 million each year.
During the evening an exciting new film and music theme was unveiled for Nightrider™ 2015. The action-packed 100km cycle route – which already takes in over 50 of London’s iconic landmarks – will feature locations including 221b Baker Street (Sherlock Holmes), Abbey Road (The Beatles), The Globe Pub in Borough Market and Bedale Street (Bridget Jones’s Diary), 22 Heddon Street (David Bowie) and Berwick Street (Oasis). During the ride there will be a music and movie quiz. Plus there will prizes for the best film and music themed fancy dress costume and #SelfieStar story that captures the event.
Film, music and cycling also set the theme for the Launch Party. We all enjoyed cinema-themed treats such as candy floss (yum!) and popcorn while entertainment was provided by Green & Conder and Serena Soya. Trixter offered an interactive cycling experience on their state of the art exercise bikes and massages from Capital Physio proved popular.
The Launch Party also celebrated £90 million raised for hundreds of charities by Classic Tours, originator of worldwide charity challenges and organiser of Nightrider™. Now in its sixth year, the annual Nightrider™ challenge has raised £6 million of this amount. Classic Tours has £100 million within its sights and Nightrider™ will help reach this incredible goal.
Chairman, Sir Erich Reich said: “There was much excitement at the Launch Party about next year’s event. Nightrider is a fantastic way to see the sights of London in a different light whilst helping to raise a huge amount for charity. London is an unrivalled creative hub for the arts and the 2015 ride has the added appeal a film and music twist to our already unique ride”. For more information visit: www.nightrider.org.uk.
