Newport Sports & Outdoors: 1 reviews and 2 photos
Every two years my town of Newport hosts a floodlit cycle race the Newport Nocturne and it has attracted top cyclists from past and present including names such as Sean Kelly and British Olympic gold medallist Jason Queally. The race is the UK's only floodlit street race and possibly the only floodlit cycle race in Britain too. There is as yet no regular date for the event other than some time in September. Newport used to host a daytime cycle road race annually but I must say that I prefer the night time race as the atmosphere is that much more exciting!
