On October 22nd hundreds of cyclists will light up the Southsea seafront as part of the Pedal Portsmouth Glow Ride.

The free event is taking place for the first time this year, as attendees are encouraged to don glow-in-the-dark and hi-vis clothing and accessories to raise awareness for cycle safety.

The family-friendly ride is taking place in partnership with the "Be Bright, Be Seen" campaign, which reminds cyclists to make themselves visible to avoid road collisions.

Participants will cycle on a traffic-free route along the Southsea seafront, making use of the road closures that are already in place for the Great South Run. The ride starts at Blue Reef, and will last one hour from 6pm to 7pm, allowing cyclists of all age ranges and abilities to ride the course at their own pace. 

Councilor Jim Fleming, Portsmouth City Council's cabinet member for traffic and transportation, said: "Following the success of our last two Pedal Portsmouth cycling events, we are delighted to offer something a bit different with our first Pedal Portsmouth Glow Ride. 

"We hope lots of Portsmouth families will get into the spirit of the event by decorating their bikes and dressing up brightly and that it will encourage them to continue cycling safely all year round. Make sure you sign up to be part of the spectacle!"

The registration desk will be open from 5pm, and more information can be found here
