Circus Space Nightrider Challenge
In the early hours of Sunday morning an intrepid team of cyclists set off on a 100km (62 mile) route around London. The team of eight have so far raised over £1,700 so far to support the next generation of circus artists through free workshops, bursaries and scholarships on our degree course.
Setting off at just after midnight, the course was an uphill challenge - quite literally - as the team tackled some of the capital’s highest points including Alexandra Palace and Parliament Hill. They also wound their way through a deserted Canary Warf and moonlit Trafalgar Square. The team’s hard work and training paid off though, with the group finishing in an average of seven hours.
Making a 100km loop through the streets of London has always been a goal of mine. To do one through the night and to raise funds for our organisation all added to the thrill of the adventure. Loved it and look forward to new challenges.
