The Lions Club of Grand Cayman is again gearing up to host their annual Bikeathon.
According to organisers, the event was a great success last year, raising a commendable amount of funds for Lions’ community projects.
This year’s event is organized by Lion Ian Callow, who said, ‘The Bikeathon is structured a little differently this time, as teams of three people are now able to enter, with each person riding one lap of the course.
Entry cost for a team of three riders is $100. However, you can still ride as an individual for $35.
Mr. callow said this means that all the serious riders still have a good course to cover and families can have a fun ride as well.
The Lions Bikeathon will be held on Sunday, June 7, starting from the Lions Centre at 7.00am.
The route will go east from the Lions Centre and turn right down South Sound Road at the roundabout.
Riders will then turn left down Walkers Road and onto Smith Road, where they will travel up to Bobby Thompson Way, before turning left on Linford Pierson Highway to travel back to the Lions Centre.
Lions say they are encouraging everyone to come out and take part in this fun event.
President of the Lions Club Tony Rich said, ‘This is an event for all the family and I will be out riding with my two sons. Its a great way to get fit and raise some money for worthy projects that Lions are currently working on in the community.’
There will be t-shirts for the first 50 entrants in this year’s ride, in addition to a prize draw, with some great prizes up for grabs.
Mr. Rich added that persons unable to participate in the Bikeathon, can still make meaningful donations to the club’s worthy causes by simply contacting any member of the Lions Club of Grand Cayman.
