NEWS – 2016 London Nocturne


Cyclists from city commuters to Olympic Champions will hit the streets of the capital as the London Nocturne returns on 4th June for the 10-year anniversary of the award winning cycling event.


The 2016 edition will see some exciting developments as the race moves from its home in Smithfield Market to a new circuit in the heart of the City. Starting and finishing on Cheapside with St Pauls Cathedral providing an iconic backdrop, the new circuit will transform the Square Mile from business hub into a high octane race circuit for a spectacular day and evening of bike racing and entertainment.

James Pope, CEO of Face Partnership, organisers of the London Nocturne said: “We are excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the London Nocturne by moving to a bigger circuit in the heart of the City. The new location will enable the event to continue to grow and accommodate more spectators, participants and attractions to make the event better than ever.”

The focal point of the new circuit will be the start/finish area at St Paul’s which will feature public grandstands, hospitality area, big screen and spectator attractions including a children’s activity area with cycle training.

A packed race programme will include crowd favourites such as the Folding Bike and Penny Farthing Race, building up to the main elite races. The men’s Criterium which was won by Olympic Champion, Ed Clancy in 2015 will once again be a hotly fought contest between the UK’s top professional teams and guest international riders.

New races for 2016 will include the Track Bike Criterium featuring fixed gear bikes with no brakes, and the Concours d’Elegance – a celebration of style and considerate cycling with prizes going to the most elegant riders. The London Nocturne is free to attend but limited grandstand and hospitality tickets are available. Full details can be found at
