Moonrider - Halloween Special
Not just any bike ride - these are Moonrides!
Oct 25 2013
With a rich history steeped in centuries of ghastly tales, London is one of the world's spookiest cities, where history still haunts the streets, buildings and ancient towers. As the moon casts shadows over Halloween 2013, join hundreds of fellow riders on our creepy cycle of the city. Pass the haunted landmarks, as you pedal between our frightening pit-stops, enjoying a real Halloween celebration.
On a ride where all is not what it seems, activity will start to stir on the haunted streets of London. The Highgate vampire, a barber on Fleet Street, and the supernatural goings-on amid the Tower of London - all come alive as riders pick up the pace. Style yourselves and your bike to fit to the theme, as you sample the pumpkin soup and blood juice on the way. This certainly won't be a Friday Fright Night you'll forget in a hurry...
Setting out from our start venue, a maze of secret hidden catacombs close to London's Waterloo station the 100km route loops around the city of London visiting all corners - East to West, North to South. The route will be mapped, signed and marshaled by our teams of High-Vis Zombies along the way with rest and energy snack stops en-route.
