I visited ol’ London Town last year, and as I was leaving I was reading on Twitter that the London Nocturne was that night, I was sorely peeved I can tell you! But not this year, oh no. June the 6th is the date, just need to keep that in mind now as I’m planning jollies this summer!
The Jupiter London Nocturne is back for its 9th time this year, racing through the tight streets of Smithfields market. More than 10,000 fans flocked to the event last year, creating an electrifying atmosphere on the 1.1km street circuit around the historic Smithfield Market. This year’s event will once again include the traditional Folding Bike and Penny Farthing Races, culminating in the men’s and women’s Elite Criteriums which will feature a host of British and international cycling stars.
All types of cyclists ranging from commuters to Olympic champions will take to the streets of the City of London on 6th June to kick off another spectacular summer of cycling in London.
This year’s event will once again include the traditional Folding Bike and Penny Farthing Races, culminating in the men’s and women’s Elite Criteriums which will feature a host of British and international cycling stars.
The City Criterium will see corporate teams vying to claim the glory as the fastest business in the Square Mile with one of the teams qualifying from the Jupiter Race earlier in the programme.
Also included will be the Brooks Retro Criterium, Leigh Day Criterium and the Santander Cycles Race – the cycle hire race, sponsored by Transport for London (TfL), was one of the highlights last year and returns on a new fleet of Santander Cycles in 2015.
