This Saturday, Sunday and Monday, local cyclists will be busy as the SVG Cycling Union hosts a three-stage event.
Saturday’s first race starts at 6:30a.m from the decommissioned E.T Joshua Airport. From there, cyclists will ride to Colonaire then loop from Calder to Bridgetown and finish at Akers Gap in Argyle. In this event, the Elite cyclists will make the loop three times, whereas the Masters will do so twice. This means that the Elite cyclists will cover 56.5 miles, while the Masters will do 47.5 miles.
Stage two on Sunday rides off at 1:30p.m at Mount Young in Georgetown and will loop from Tourama to Georgetown and conclude at Langley Park gap. As such the Elite cyclists will loop nine times, an overall distance of 90 miles.
On the other hand, the Masters will do the loop five times as they cover a total of 50 miles.
And, on Monday, it will be 52.5 miles for the Elite cyclists and 42 miles for the Masters. The start point for all cyclists is the decommissioned E.T Joshua Airport. Thereafter, cyclists will ride to Colonaire before heading back to the Arnos Vale roundabout. However, the Elite cyclists will journey to Biabou before heading back the Calder gap and proceed to their finish line at the Belmont Look Out.
In the case of the Masters, from the Arnos Vale roundabout they will head out to the Calder gap which is the finishing point of their race.
