Liverpool’s business community joins forces for charity bike ride

Liverpool’s commercial business community joined together this past weekend to raise money for charity.

This year marked the first time Nightrider came to the North West, having already established events in London and Bristol. The overnight bike ride is described as a fantastic way to discover a city by bike whilst raising funds for charity.

Taking place on 16-17 July, the 100km route started and finished on Liverpool’s famous waterfront and involved a gruelling route which took riders to New Brighton, West Kirby and Port Sunlight in Wirral before looping back to Liverpool via Albert Dock, Goodison Park, Anfield and Princes Dock.

Classic Tours are the originators of Nightrider and over the last 22 years more than £90 million has been raised for hundreds of charities.

The routes are chosen specifically to enable participants to see all the highlights the city has to offer and organisers provide full support, back up and regular break stops throughout the night. At the finish, riders will receive a well-earned breakfast and medal.

Claire House Children’s Hospice offers care, support and choice for families with seriously and terminally ill children from across Merseyside. With 80% of the hospice’s funding coming from public donations, sponsored events and regular ways of giving, all money raised from the bike ride will support the cost of caring for children, helping them build happy memories with their families.

John Barker, partner at Hitchcock Wright & Partners, said prior to the event:

“Nightrider is going to be a challenging event but the money raised is going towards such a worthwhile cause. The team and I are excited to raise as much money as we can for Claire House and would urge everyone to make a donation!”
