Midnight Ride to return for fifth year in 2019

The Midnight Ride is to return for its fifth year to Oswestry in June 2019.

Founded in 2015, the ride brings together an active community of people taking part in sporting events for reasons ranging from fitness, competition, charity, health or fun.

It has raised over £8,000 for local charities and this year 100 riders took part.

It is looking to grow and attract new riders for 2019, with entries opening on 1st November.

Dave Mellor Cycles will be the new headline sponsor for the ride, which will also have a new route and new timings.

Founder Alan Lewis of Midnight Ride said: “I’m really excited to be working with Dave and the team for next year.

“2019 is an exciting time for the midnight ride with a new time and also a new route.

“We will also be looking at a Mini Midnight Ride for the little ones – allow them to ride in a safe environment with lights on at dusk.”

Dave Mellor said: “I’m really looking forward to the ride in 2019, having taken part in the ride in 2018 it was a great opportunity to support this local ride for 2019 and hopefully beyond and support local charities in the process.”
