Bonkers Bikes And Champion Cyclists Compete In Free Bike Race

Head to St Paul's next month for a fab day/night of free bike racing fun.

Cycle race the London Nocturne returns to the city for the 10th year; and they're celebrating the anniversary with a new location.

Cyclists from city commuters to Olympic champions will compete in a packed programme, which includes Folding Bike and Penny Farthing bike races, as well as the Lycra-free Considerate Cyclists' Concours d'Elegance (prizes are awarded for the most elegant riders).

As night falls, it's time for the cycling elite to battle it out: last year's men's Criterium was won by Olympic Champion, Ed Clancy.

As well as the brilliant bike races, there'll be food and drink stalls, children's activities, and plenty of other spectator attractions to add to the party atmosphere. Our advice: get down there early, grab a drink and a good spot, and bang the ad boards to the music to your heart's content.

Oh, and pace yourselves: the elite teams are on at around 8pm onwards, with prizes handed out at 9.45pm.

The London Nocturne is on 4 June, 3pm to 10.30pm, Cheapside, EC4. Free. Visit the London Nocture to find out more.
