Kunsill Malti għall-iSport (KMS) in collaboration with the Malta Cycling Federation (MCF) will be organising two free community bike rides this weekend. On Saturday, 9th April starting at 13:30hrs (registration at 13:00hrs), the first bike ride will start from near the Gozo Horse Track, Nadur and will finish at the Gozo Ferry Terminal, Mgarr. The second bike ride will take place on Sunday, 10th April starting at 11.30hrs (registration: 11.00hrs) and will start from the end of Zebbug By-Pass/Rabat to finish in Sliema (Ferries Car Park). Three pick up points for younger riders will be set up as follows – Pickup Point 1: Blata l-Bajda (next to Peugeot Showroom) at 11.45hrs, Pickup Point 2: Msida at 12.00hrs and Pickup Point 3: Paul & Rocco at 12.15hrs. The bike ride should finish around 1pm.

 Cyclists should note that the routes are not circular and will need to make arrangements to return to their cars. If it is your first time riding with us, arrive about 15 minutes early to ensure all in order. Full safety measures are taken during all 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. Water will also be distributed free of charge. Through these bike rides, the KMS continues its endeavour to provide opportunities to encourage and enhance sport participation among all members of society.
