Cyclists wanted for Nightrider

PUBLISHED: 08:00 28 March 2015

A BACKWELL charity is looking for volunteers to take part in a night cycle through the capital to raise money for disabled people.

Participants can choose a 100km or 60km route and some of the landmarks cyclists will pass include Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square and the London Eye.

Motivation, based in Brockley Lane, is now appealing for people to take on the London Nightrider in aid of the cause.

The charity supports disabled people in some of the world’s poorest countries and the money raised will help support its Wheels in Motion campaign to transform the lives of thousands of people by providing them with life-changing wheelchairs and support.

Motivation’s president, David Constantine, who is taking part in London Nightrider, said: “Nightrider is such a fantastic challenge.

“Everybody who took part last year was absolutely buzzing at the end and we raised over £25,000 - that’s 181 wheelchairs for disabled people in some of the world’s poorest countries.”
