Forget the Tour de France…we’re all about the Tour de Smithfield.
Thousands of cycling fans will descend on the streets around Smithfield Market on 8 June for the London Nocturne, an elite racing event held at night. As well as the men’s and women’s criterium races, taking place on a tight course around the market area, there’s also some sillier events in the form of the penny farthing race and a longest skid competition. There’ll also be food and drink stalls. The London Nocturne is free to attend.
