London Nocturne moves to new City of London circuit

2016 edition of the London Nocturne to move to a City and St Paul's Cathedral circuit, with more events added to program.

The London Nocturne will return on 4th June for its 10-year anniversary edition, with a move from its former home in Smithfield Market to the streets of the City marking the celebration.

The new circuit will start and finish on Cheapside in the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral, amid the public grandstands, hospitality areas, big screens and other spectator attractions that will act as a focal point for the new location.

The event typically attracts the UK's top professional teams into competition, as well as a host of international riders from World Tour teams, and this year we expect will be no different.

But as well as the headlining acts of the men's and women's elite races, there will be the usual eclectic mix of folding bike and penny farthing races, added to new billings such as the fixed gear 'Track Bike Criterium' and 'Concours d'Elegance', where prizes are decided by the most elegant riders.

James Pope, CEO of race organisers Face Partnership, 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 event is free to attend, but limited grandstand and hospitality tickets are available. Full details can be found at londonnocturne.com, and as Cyclist is the official media partner of the London Nocturne in 2016, we'll see you there.
