PANAJI: TriGoa Foundation will organise the second edition of ‘TriGoa Multi-City Century Ride’ on Sunday, November 8. Cyclists will have the freedom to attempt the 100km endurance ride from the city of their choice, be it Panaji, Margao, Ponda or Vasco. The rides will begin at 06.30 am and cyclists will have seven-and-a-half hours to complete the ride.
In a media release issued here on Monday, Rajesh Malhotra, founder of TriGoa Foundation, said: “This is a unique, 100km ride, where cyclists from the four, major Goan cities will start simultaneously and cross each other along the route. While Panaji and the Vasco riders will move in a clock-wise direction, Ponda and Margao riders will move in an anti-clock direction. Special arrangements for breakfast, snacks, ice-cream and juices have been made in each city along the route to keep the cyclists hydrated and energised.”
According to Malhotra, participants must be of minimum 15 years age to register for the event, but a parent or guardian will have to ride alongside cyclists below the age of 18.
Malhotra added that this was a ‘self-supported’ ride and no mechanical support would be provided along the route. “No pick-up option will be provided by the organisers along the route and participants will have to arrange their own transport if they decide to quit midway. Also, we insist that all cyclists will have to wear masks and line up keeping safe distance at the start, finish and all control points. All Covid-19 guidelines set by the authorities must be followed,” he said.
