The Kiwanis Club of Grand Cayman hosts its annual bike-a-thon this Sunday.
Organizers of the KiwaniBike anticipate that more than 150 cyclists will take part in the challenging ride from the Blow Holes in East End to Smith Cove in George Town.
Past President, Secretary and KiwaniBike Chairperson Monique Bush said, “We’re thrilled to be able to host KiwaniBike for its 32nd year. The 20-mile bike ride is a major fund-raiser for our club with funds raised this year going to our Key Clubs and Builders Clubs which create young leaders in our schools.”
Riders who are taking part should head to Smith Cove Sunday morning between 5:30-6 a.m. and hand in their bikes which will be transported to the Blow Holes by Lemmie’s Trucking. Riders can then take a bus to the Blow Holes, courtesy of Majestic Tours.
The cycle ride will begin in East End at 7 a.m.
Event pre-registration is being offered this Saturday, Feb. 15, at Foster’s at the Strand from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, where riders can hand in their pledges and collect their event t-shirts. Pledges of $30 or more will receive a T-shirt, post-event refreshments and entry into a prize draw.
Those who place pledges of $150 or more will be entered to win a gift certificate from Uncle Bill’s for the value of a new bike.
“This event wouldn’t be possible without the riders and sponsors. We thank our riders – the new comers, the cycling enthusiasts and those who support us each and every year and also Island Heritage for their generous support,” said Ms. Bush.
