Ride the Lights 2017
Why not get on your bike and come and Ride the Lights on the 29 Aug 2017!! You will get to experience an exciting preview of Blackpool Illuminations.
Ride at any point along the promenade from Starr Gate at South Shore to Red Bank Road in Bispham. Starting Time: 19:00 – 22:00
You can ride as much or as little as you like and Ride the lights is not a bike race, it’s a fun and free. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends while enjoying the view.
For the first time ever in 2016, riders had the opportunity to detour through the Blackpool Pleasure Beach via North Gate. Riders were greeted by a live DJ set along with Nickelodeon and Blackpool Pleasure Beach characters. For 2017, this will take place again! Because of the capacity coming through the park during the event, Blackpool Pleasure Beach are only allowing people riding their bikes, so pedestrians, scooters or people dismounting and pushing their bikes through will be provided access.
