Ride the Lights

The popular free event sees the seafront stretch fully closed to vehicles for one night only between 19:00 - 22:00 to allow cyclists to get a sneak preview of the Blackpool Illuminations ahead of the annual Switch-On on Friday.

Ride the Lights is attended by thousands of people every year and has become a firm favourite.

As well as enjoying the ride, families, visitors and local residents were also well entertained at the Ride the Lights hub located at the Tower Festival Headland opposite The Blackpool Tower hosted by Radio Wave.

For the first time ever in 2017, riders had the opportunity to detour through the Blackpool Pleasure Beach via North Gate. Riders were greeted by a live DJ set along with Nickelodeon and Blackpool Pleasure Beach characters. For 2018, this will take place again! Because of the capacity coming through the park during the event, Blackpool Pleasure Beach are only allowing people riding their bikes, so pedestrians, scooters or people dismounting and pushing their bikes through will be provided access.  

Hundreds of children and families from all over the North West and beyond attended the event and many decorated their bikes with a lights theme with a myriad of colourful and exciting designs on display, including a stunning log flume-themed design and even a dodgem themed bike!
