NightriderIf the organisers of Nightrider fulfil their aim they'll raise £2 million in one night. You can help by taking to the streets of London by bike on a moonlit night and riding past some of the city's iconic landmarks while raising money for charity. The 100km route which begins at Crystal Palace or Alexandra Place - you can choose which starting point suits you - is not for beginners but anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and confidence on the road can take part. Cycling past sights like Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral and the London Eye while the city sleeps is one way of putting the 'fun' in fundraising.

About Alexandra Palace

After a shaky start - destroyed by fire 16 days after 'The People's Palace' first opened in 1873 - Alexandra Palace re-opened again two years later becoming the place from where the BBC beamed its first broadcast in 1935. The palace title maybe a little misleading - it's charm being more shabby chic than regal. More about Alexandra Palace
