Hundreds of lucky cyclists enjoyed a sneak preview of this year’s Blackpool Illuminations as the annual ‘Ride the Lights’ event returned.

People young and old donned fancy dress and covered their bikes in vibrant fairy lights, lamps and lanterns as they pedalled tonight (August 31) along the Promenade to view the Illuminations from beginning to end.

VisitBlackpool closed off six miles of road to traffic between Starr Gate at South Shore to Red Bank Road in Bispham with participants able to travel as much or little of the route as they wanted.
