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.

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!
