Cycling Challenge fundraises for charity
A Corporate Cycling Challenge took place in the Piazza last Saturday to raise funds for Gibraltar Prostate Support Group and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Gibraltar.
The challenge consisted of teams on watt bikes [static exercise bike] to see how far they could pedal in 15 minutes. It formed part of the Pamplona Cycle Challenge whereby six Gibraltarians will cover 1,160kms cycling from Pamplona to Gibraltar in May.
The winners of the event were; in 1st place HM Customs Gibraltar (the not so young ones), in 2nd place HM Customs and in 3rd place, the 5 in 5 team.
“Thank you to all teams that participated and their sponsors, Lewis Stagnetto for sponsoring the prizes, Med Rowing Club for providing the bicycles, the organizers and everyone that donated on the day,” said a statement from the two charities.
An earlier version of this article stated that the winner of the corporate challenge was HM Customs Gibraltar. In fact, it was HM Customs Gibraltar (the not so young ones) that won and HM Customs Gibraltar came in second place.
