May 15 - Local Cyclists To Ride Around The Rock For 24Hrs

Five local cyclists will be 'Cycling to Raise Awareness' will be riding together around Gibraltar for 24 hours this Friday.
 
The riders will be collecting funds for three local charities: Gibraltar Alzheimer's and Dementia Society, Gibraltar Parkinson's Support Group and GibSams.
 
At 6pm on Friday, the Mayor John Gonçalvez will officially set off the riders in Main Street outside the House of Parliament.
 
A spokesperson said: "This will be start of what is going to be a very challenging event bearing in mind that the cyclists will only be allowed to stop for a maximum of 5 mins after every hour of cycling. They will use time to recover their energy either by eating foods which  high  in protein and carbohydrates or to change from day to night clothing.
 
"It's not the first time that these five cyclists, Ian, Mark, Peter, Jimmy and Michael whose ages range from 54 to 67 years,have joined forces to do a charity event. They rode together a few years ago from Santiago de Compostela to Gibraltar, however this challenge is on a different level as there is not much rest within the 24 hours and muscle tiredness may creep in. Nevertheless they are in high spirit.
 
"During the ride, volunteers from the three charities will be at The Piazza promoting the event, the charities themselves and in the process collecting donations. All monies collected will  in their entirety be equally shared between the three charities. The team is asking the community to support them when seen around Gibraltar, they also request other road users to be patient with them especially when cycling up the hills. The team wishes to thank PJI Foundation for sponsoring their maillots."
 
A Justgiving page for the event has been set up.

They also have a FaceBook Page "24hrcyclingmarathon". https://www.facebook.com/gibcharity/
