The Kunsill Malti għall-iSport (KMS) together with the Malta Cycling Federation (MCF) is organising a bike ride on Sunday, 30th May 2010. The bike ride starts at 10.30CET from Bahar Ic-Caghaq, Coast Road (picnic area near the Coastline Hotel) and will finish in St Julians (car park area near Police Station/McDonalds).
The route will take riders along the coast road heading towards St. Andrews/Pembroke and on towards St Julians. A pick up point for younger rides will be set up at the entrance of the ex-White Rocks Complex, St. Andrews; youngsters wishing to participate from this point should be present by 10.45CET to join the main group. Another pick up point will be set up for the ‘Girls on the Move’ programme at Luxol Car Park and should be present by 11:00CET. The bike ride should finish around 11.30CET.
The KMS and the Malta Cycling Federation (MCF) have been organising regular ‘Bike Rides’ for the past two years which have been gaining in popularity. These rides have been taking place in various locations around the island and cater for all ages as part of a ‘Sports for All’ initiative.
These organised rides offer the opportunity for biking enthusiasts to come together, no matter what skill level, to have fun riding a bike in a safe environment. These rides can be enjoyed by everyone even if you do not own your own bike, as bikes and helmets are also provided for, free of charge. As the routes are not circular you will, however, have to make arrangements in advance to get back to your car; or those parents whose children are taking part can pick up their child at the finishing point. We know that Malta has a high percentage of cars on the road which makes participating in an organised bike ride a very safe option; as full safety measures are taken during these bike rides.
All cyclists are required to wear a helmet and stay with the group; apart from a lead car there are also back up teams, traffic police and an ambulance on standby following the group just in case of an emergency.
