The organiser behind the Revolution Track Series and London Nocturne has devised a new and unique event that pits road riders, mountain bikers and BMxers against each other on a challenging course in a multi-storey car park in Tobacco Dock, Wapping on October 4.
The Parkour Ride will feature BMX World Champion Liam Phillips, who launched the event this week.

“Parkour Ride is a hugely innovative concept and I feel honoured to be a part of the team,” said Phillips. “From the location to the dynamics of the circuit it’ll be such a great experience for all taking part.”
“Parkour Ride will engage riders across numerous disciplines, but the course is designed in such a way to ensure the playing field is levelled, and riders will need a strategy to get that extra edge. I’ve tested the circuit in London, and it promises to be a thrilling ride.”
James Pope, managing director of event organiser Face Partnership, said: “Parkour Ride will be a multi-discipline head-to-head elimination race. Our vision is to create an urban race where amateurs race against pros, men race against women, BMX against mountain bikes and road bikes – all on the same circuit.
“We’ve been working closely with Liam on the format and the circuit layout. His input has been invaluable as we’ve developed the concept over the past year.”
