Ride the lights – 29th August 2017
Starr Gate at South Shore, Blackpool Promenade 

Before the Blackpool Illuminations Switch on, the city closes the road between 7pm to 10pm to let thousands of riders in an electrifying cycle ride along the Promenade. It’s also a super way to get the chance to have a first look at the Illuminations before it really starts! The route runs from Starr Gate, South Shore all the way through the Red Bank Road in Bispham. Join now the family fun atmosphere!

Don’t forget to book a room with us! We are situated on the North Promenade, close to all the fun!
