At midnight on Saturday 9th June intrepid cyclists set off on a 100km moonlit cycle through the streets of London. Alongside celebrity riders such as Princess Eugenie and 1,000s of enthusiastic cyclists was a team of ten taking on this challenge on behalf of the Bromley by Bow Centre.
"[The] ride was really good fun - we did it at quite a leisurely pace in the end, enjoying the sights. Thankfully the weather decided to take a break at just the right time so more or less perfect conditions" Oli, Nightrider 2012
We would like to thank our cyclists for raising over £2,000 in sponsorship for the Centre! Their hard work training for the event in one of the wettest summers on record and their enthusiasm and dedication on race day has been incredible. With their support we are able to continue to provide some of our key services helping local people on their personal journeys into education, employment and better health.
"It was a fantastic experience. So glad that I could raise money for the Centre....you are doing some amazing work in the community and I am very proud to have been associated with you." Jess, Nightrider 2012
