The Newport Nocturne is the UK's first floodlit cycle race, competed over the cobbled streets of Newport, Shropshire, a historical market town in the heart of the county.
The Newport Nocturne is a Crit (or Criterium Race) that is usually ridden over a short / closed circuit in the centre of the host town. Riders race circuits of the streets for a 1 hour period. With competitors riding multiple circuits at high speed and very close to the event spectators, the event creates an amazing atmosphere and spectacle for everyone! Whether you are a keen cyclist or complete novice the Newport Nocturne offers an evening of constant excitement for riders, visitors to the area and local inhabitants.
It's a chance to experience top class cycle racing in a unique environment. Experience the beautiful and historical town of Newport like never before!
