Cycle to Work Now organises the St. Crispin's Day Night Ride, a cycle ride past some of London's monuments and through a vineyard. This year the ride starts at midnight on Saturday 26th October, the night the clocks go back. The finish is open until 4pm on Sunday, giving riders 17 hours to complete the course. The ride starts in west London and passes through the city, giving fantastic views of London's iconic landmarks, and out to a leading English vineyard where riders can pick up their own bottle of St. Crispin's Day wine, which is included in the entry fee. The course then heads back to the start line, so that by the end of the day riders will have travelled 100 miles. The St. Crispin's Day Night Ride has been designed by Cycle to Work Now so that it can be completed by as many people as possible. It can be completed by anyone who is reasonably fit, and the route has been planned to be very flat, with no gradients steeper than 5%. Reflective route markings and a route confirmation system have been put in place so that navigation is easy. Marshals will be riding the route offering guidance and support too. There are several places to stop for food along the route, and including stops an overall speed of about 6 miles per hour is needed to complete the ride in time.
